Tons of great men/people come from shady backgrounds or have done bad things in their past. I get this comes from a place of wanting to understand. But it still reads frustrating when mobsters like Al Capone and others were celebrated and immortalized by our culture. Yet only black and Latin gangs are thought of as being evil. You’re absolutely right about culture. The thing is, Al Capone was evil. Anyone is painting him as a Rapper Rip Rest In Peace Nipsey Hussle Crenshaw 1985-2019 TMC Shirt. I’m not sure if anyone touched on this, but it’s important to understand perspective when songwriting (first vs third person) and the difference between ‘talking about’ and ‘advocating’ gang violence.

But especially when all of the Ballin crazes started. It became much more common to brag and fictionalize the lifestyle. You can definitely see this with Biggie’s Juicy where he talks very realistically about his upbringing. That’s a bit of a rabbit hole that doesn’t really answer any questions. It just makes me wonder what level of responsibility we should place on artists not just for what they are “talking about”.

And lastly, I think an argument can be made that talking about past crime isn’t the same as advocating. I smile at some of the trouble I got into as a youth like skipping detention and writing graffiti. It was bad stuff, but not evil stuff, sure. With gang culture, though, it can feel similar to war in that the right thing to do doesn’t always feel like an option. That’s not an excuse, it’s just a Rapper Rip Rest In Peace Nipsey Hussle Crenshaw 1985-2019 TMC Shirt. It’s important to understand that it’s not always the same thing as advocating, as much as it is them not even realizing they had another option when they did. Yeah, I had no idea who he was until like the past 2 years. Maybe he was famous in Cali or surroundings areas but I definitely did not know anything.
