The power of rap music is one of the few things that is not recognized by many who dislike the lyrics,don’t listen to it and even by those who listen to it.Mostly people have the concept of the explicit words and even music videos but what u don’t understand is this is the artists effort to capture the attention of the audience in the bid to spread their message.
Let’s case this analysis on the most popular Rap music which is from the US and when u categorize it there are two kinda messages spread one is the need to hustle and at times at the expense of sleep this is by artists such as Big Sean while the other message which is the strongest is the oppression of the black man in the US mostly by police and this is by most artists such as Jay-Z Kanye West Kendrick Lamar J.Cole and as you can see these are the big names in the industry.
If these type of music is given a major chance in interference in matters of the society there can be an evident revolution. Rap music is not all about bragging after all.
