Since Hip Hop's emergence into the public eye, it has constantly come under scrutiny All this hating Rap music gets old... Your uncle, brother, cousin, step-dad, friend is more likely to influence you to become an alcoholic or drug addict than a rapper. Only those people can give you PHYSICAL ACCESS to those things. The music can influence your way of thinking, yes. But if those lifestyles are already in your environment then you can't blame music. What about the white people who listen to Taylor Swift and still do drugs?
Music simply imitates whats already in society. Actually, drugs and music have gone hand in hand as long as humans have been around. Nobody's calling Jimi Hendrix or Bob Marley enemies of the community.
