Sep 3, 2009 Read more: Daily Express 137

Rap superstar JAY-Z has hit back at criticism from the U.S. black hierarchy suggesting hip-hop degrades the African-American community - insisting they are using the topic for "publicity purposes".

I love real hip hop...which by the way is a rare thing to find now adays...and I will say that there are some serious issues with Rap music...the whole direction,the mindset the value system that is rooted in rap music is seriously on a low vibration...it is lacking in any real artistic expression even...it is in fact like selling dope to kids!

Most of it is garbbage that creates and leaves black children with a garbbage state of mind!

And while Jay Z is not the worst or the worst...there are some of these "artist" that are just plain wreckless about what they say....they couldn't care less about young people...hell they barely care about themselves!

But rather the money involved!

Rap music started out clean

But in the 90's GANGTA RAP came it

And that's when Rap music took a turn for the worst

This is the only thing I can ever agree with you on.

I can't believe people actually praise the likes of Lil Wayne.

LMAO. Most of the rap/hip hop albums are bought by white kids of anything.The music is garbage for whites,but good enough for blacks.

If you pay close attention that's why soo many whites are messed up in their heads.They listen to too much rap and since it's popular the whites who like rap are just as twisted as the blacks are.

It's mostly trendy white kids and blacks who think being like wayne is how a black person should be.

Wayne is a short,ugly overly tatted ghetto rat.

Huh? Shows how little you know. lol! For years and years most older people have constantly put down heavy metal music, calling it satanic and devil music.

I think there's garbage in all kinds of music, but good in all different kinds of music, as well. But that's left up to each individuals personal taste to decide.
