Thus, the African American community would take rhythm

Thus, brings us to the origin of
the topic question. Is rhythm and poetry an effective way to educate the youth
about the social issues in the world today, or it’s not effective and the
belief that it can be effective is just an illusion.

Ever since the first RAP song was
made, the superior race at those times didn’t respect the fact that the African
American community would take rhythm and poetry to express their struggles as
the lowest race to the superior races’ eyes. Rappers like 2pac, Biggie and many
more used to fight against this fact and got themselves titled as ‘Young
Leaders’ because of this fact. Despite the appearances of violence,
nudity and drug abuse in their many forms of art, the rappers were still able
to express their struggles as well as make awareness about them. Positively,
the art form of RAP grew impressively, making a lot of youths from the 90s want
to take charge and express their lifestyles in todays society. So, knowing that
fact, one may ask himself/herself if rap can teach the youth of today about the
social issues that humanity suffers from. Social issues like gender equality,
sexual abuse, domestic violence, LGBT rights and racism. These social issues
affect many individuals and the fact that most of them are not talked about as much
as how they are affecting societies, kills to know that the youth may not
understand the importance of them and how they should be prevented.

            RAP, also known as rhythm and
poetry, is a musical form of vocal delivery that incorporates ‘rhyme, rhythmic
speech, and street vernacular’. It is performed in a variety of ways but usually
over a backbeat or musical accompaniment. This form of music was made in the 1970s
by some jockeys and urban African Americans to make money as well as show their
different type of lifestyles they have in a creative way. RAP has been known to
be not respected by the many societies because most elders in those societies
believe that RAP is not well mannered. They usually classify it as ‘Hooligans
Music’, where they even put
racial stereotypes about how this type of music only suits a certain race.
