I don't really have a favorite genre of music, but if I had to choose it would be Rap music. People look down on this genre because they don’t take the time to look beyond the music, or to look beyond the inappropriate content to see the message in the song. Rap isn’t always negative; rap can also contain personal experiences about the rapper's life and everything they have been through. Rap contains a lot of emotion and feeling in every song made.
Rap is the mouthpiece of the people.
Rap can be a very positive thing to listen to. There are happy songs that can brighten up someone’s day and with all the feeling within the music. If someone relates to what the rapper is saying it can make a depressed kid or person see he/she is not the only one with the troubles they are facing, and there is a way to deal with his/her problems. Rap isn’t just entertainment it can be used as a therapy for some people, and can state opinions the rapper has and how they view life. Rapper’s don’t make music to cause controversy; some think that with their music they can change the world.” 'I'm not saying I'm gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world.” - Tupac. For some, rap music is an escape and a positive genre of music.
Tupac may not be alive today, but he has never been forgotten. Pac's legacy lives on to this day, and he is known world-wide. Rappers today always make references to him. He has been named him the most influential rapper. The Legacy of Tupac Amaru Shakur lives on today, through his fans worldwide.
