Rappers sing about money, drugs, guns, gangs, pimps, and violence.
Yes, there is always the element of violence. Bullets and sudden death are more than songs; it is part of their lives. Many rappers are former gangsters and they often die young. They portray a ghetto-fabulous lifestyle, with gaudy cars, flashy clothes, and guns.
The non-stop profanity in the lyrics of "gansta rap" is punctuated by the staccato sound of machine gun fire. With their lyrics, rappers turn the lowest degenerates of society into heroes -- the pimps with their outrageous outfits, layers of gold chains, and bevy of beautiful women embodying the whole persona of the "Playa."
Rappers help create a society where killing cops is cool, but if one works for a living or goes to school, he is a fool. Their songs are about preteens selling crack on a street corner, or about joining gangs and shooting people.
Their philosophy of "make money as fast as you can, any way that you can, while you still can." is the exact opposite of what God wants.
God wants people to help others. In contrast, rapper songs are filled with glorification of murder, pimps, drugs, and money. These hoodlums do not care about anybody except themselves. Most music is filled with the vilest profanity, and women are referred to as "ho's."
It is sad to see a whole generation growing up on the street, fatherless, and with no future, except to become a drug dealer or a pimp.
God tells us that in the last days the earth will be filled with violence. Also, that the love of money is the root of all evil.
1 Timothy 6:10
Gangsters steal and kill to become rich. They value material trinkets, not knowing that the price they pay for their lifestyle is eternity in hell.
3 John 1:11
