He has a tendency of impacting others that he comes into contact with his words and actions because of the things he says to them in a way that could make them feel as if they don’t measure up to him. West doesn’t take full responsibility for his actions when it’s time to. West is a huge figure in today’s entertainment culture with his outrageous fashions. He accessories his fashion choices with his self-made attitude that he carries around with him everywhere he goes. In personal settings Kanye West is a heartfelt person who puts all of his emotions into his music so his fans can identify with him.
Stapleton tells us that many believe the concern over sexual violence is not as big a concern of racial problems. Stapleton throws us the idea that many hip-hop artists felt that hip-hop was being considered objectionable because white youth were consuming it. Stapleton uses this to reveal where a large amount of criticism is coming from in both racial and genre issues. Stapleton brings up a gathering of hip-hop artists and rappers showing us that serious discussions were being had about the genre and the changes in it. We see in Stapleton’s words how hip-hop has become a dangerous genre and how responsibility lies in the artists, managers, record companies, and parents when it comes to the music.
Having to live with HIV and being gay has been reported to not being easy. Having to deal with the emotional aspect of rejection has caused many men to abandon their country, commit suicide and drug use. It can be very challenging to be socially accepted. Some come to the United States to seek political asylum. The good news is that
Biggie feud which I briefly spoke of earlier. Though there really was a problem between the two rappers, it was blown way out of proportion by producer Suge Knight who also had a feud but with Biggie's producer Puff Daddy. He encouraged 2pac to continuely attack Biggie in his songs. 2pac seemed to be unaware of the fact that he was actually being used by Suge to promote something even better, a westcoast vs. eastcoast war. This led to millions of albums beings sold because people began to feed into the hype and joined in on the war.
As is the case for most viral phenomena, there are those who aren’t too keen on hip-hop Elvis’s lyrical prose. They fear that his overwhelming invectives can and will entreat harm upon his avid listeners. In spite of the schism between the lovers and the haters, Eminem has undoubtedly taken the music industry by storm; and in turn, our views and considerations. While the zealots of ‘Slim Shady’ defend his lyrics and context with phrases like ‘artistic expression’ and ‘free speech’, as made evident in Jackson Katz’s essay entitled Eminem’s Popularity Is a Major Setback for Girls and Women, Eminem’s cultural trailblazing comes with a less-than charismatic price: widespread acceptance of violence against anyone and everyone who falls within the crosshairs of his philosophy. People see this on a day-to-day basis, sometimes blatantly, other times situated behind the cleverly posed acceptances found in daily public life: Guy eyes a fetching girl and advances discretely.
The media influences the way I feel about music in a negative way. The media is always trying to look for the negative in a singer, a song, or a performance, just so that they can exploit people and make themselves look better. When the radio overplays a song, it annoys me because I do not get the same feeling I got when I had only listened to it a few times. Listening to a song over and over makes me tired of it quickly. Music greatly affects us as a society.
Dudes who like to explain to women how sexist rap is (we’ll term them “Explainers”) are well-meaning white knights who have a passing familiarity with rap music and an urge to ensure that female fans are made aware that the genre is “misogynistic” (a once-powerful buzzword that used to denote hatred of women, but which increasingly means nothing more than “a thing I, a man, find sexist on some level, from a safe distance”). Explainers often identify as “feminist men,” although sometimes they’re just the type of man who likes to stringently test (feminist) women. It’s a dead giveaway that you’re dealing with an Explainer if he opens with the following lines: “How can you listen to that stuff? It’s so misogynistic” or “How can you claim to be a feminist when you love rap so much?” or “"HELLO, I AM A MAN, AND I’M HERE TO SAVE YOU FROM THE MUSIC YOU LIKE.” Explainers are motivated by a belief that rap “gets away with” being sexist; they’re selfless protectors of womenfolk who simply can’t stomach the internalised misogyny of a woman jamming Cam’ron. You may have detected that I’m snarking.
Violence is a source of laughter in children's programs; films present it as staple fare; it is served as pseudo-information in sensation-hungry newspapers and on reality TV; and it is even glorified by some musicians in their lyrics and performances. In fact in the public domain, it is difficult to find material that is not linked to violence in some form. Those who are worried by this development also point out that the negative examples provided by the media are not balanced by a positive view. Criminals are often seen as daredevil and debonair or are presented so as to arouse sympathy. The so-called ‘heroes’ in TV series and films, be they Dirty Harry, the Power Rangers, Butch Cassidy or the Mighty Ducks, are frequently violent and
It has the ability to raise social awareness, promote intelligence instead of demoting it, and can bring society together in a positive way. Music is so worldwide today it can be heard by anyone. Factually, music has played a vital part in a wide range of causes. For example, popular music has helped political campaigns with many advertisements. As a result, attracts a lot of people to listen the message they are broadcasting.
Cameron Williams 11 April 2011 4th Hour Ms. Mason Music Affect on Teens The negative effects that music can have on teens are that it encourages sexual activity, causes hearing loss, and encourages violence, but positive effect that music can have on teens is that it can help them concentrate, it can help them have a positive mind and can help them do better in school.

Teens listen to different songs with different messages, some good, and some bad. It depends how the teen react to the music.
