Firsst off I hate rap, so much. Lol. Manly todays rap, as stated: Classical rap was different. 80's made it sound actually interesint, instead of the same.
Reall I say it's just a way to make money and seem "tough". Sure it's bad effects are kids are literally trying to be like that, so in ways "geting shot in the ghetto" is cool as ALL hell! Or being from "the Ghetto" is being tough...though I think of WWII when people say Ghetto, lol.
