Now my problem is that people think that r a p music makes childern/teenagers grow up to take drugs, Drink and have unsafe sex, to name a few.

But this is not always true for example: Eminem a while back made a song called 'Role Model' and he talks about how childern should try and live there life like him by thaking drugs and unsafe sex and going out killing people and crap.
BUT this is the thing, Eminem is not trying to tell people to turn out like him and get really messed up with drugs he is trying to make a joke out of the fact that people take his music so Seriously.

if you just listen to his music and listen to was he says he isn't trying to mess people up he's trying to tell people it's a bad idea.....GO ON YOUTUBE AND TYPE IN Eminem- Role Model is you wish to know what i really mean.

i dont think it is the fault of rappers it is the fault of the people that take rap music
sooooo to heart that they think that they should go out, buy guns and take drugs.

SO PEOPLE DO YOU THINK THE LISTENER IS TO BLAME OR THE MAKER OF THE RAP?

people must give a 'feck' if they listen then deside that they wanna go out and do it. YES some people do go out and think that it is cool to take drugs and it maybe because of other things like peer pressure and think that in rap music the people that write them go out and role a joint right after it butmost of them are trying to say dont turn out like me because then you might end up regreting it.

well if you do the research you'll find that not everyone becomes rish right away and that they didn't choose to be brought up in 'slums' and places like that... so they didn't choose to live there lifes like that. and got out of the bad areas and got jobs and then became famous rappers.

yes they may have been brought up in slum and rapping has became a job for them but did they have to drink and take drugs?? that is the real question here
so if they dont want peole to do what they did they didnt have to do it in the first place

rappers rap about there life so in most on there lifes in slums and stuff they did see drugs and may have also taken them. thats there story like eminem his story is about his X (kim) and 50 cent is about (gangs/drugs) thats there life and they express this by raping about it because tis what they have seen.

Pro

it was there choice to take the drugs so they shouldnt publise the products they took because that is just making people aware of them
the rapper shouldnt rap about there life it means rapping about drugs

but there not encouraging the fact to take drugs they are simply saying that they have and then ppl go out and copy them because they think it is 'cool' but there not trying to sell them to people like 'hey take drugs' ppl think they are talking like they wont people to but they are only telling ppl there story in life.

that is why eminem made the song role model because ppl take it so seriously and he's trying to say 'take a step back and look' u dont have to take drugs to become him....u never will be him!!!!

Pro

right dude seriously stop talking about that song because im sick and tired of you repeating yourself so stop it!!!!!!!!!!!
right they may not be encouraging the fact that they should take drugs but infact are telling people that hey look at me i took drugs and now because people want to act like them there obviously gonna take drugs to become there role model and also if they rappers dont want people to take drugs they really should not put it in there songs that they have took drugs and indoing this making less kids take drugs to be like there idols so therefor many less overdoses

Heres the thing it's not the rappers that make children/teenagers that make them do crime it's the choice of the person that is listening to the song.
