I noticed something very disturbing. The #1 cause of death for rappers is gun violence.

    This isn't even an exaggeration. This is some disturbing shyt. The biggest cause of death for Blacks in the US is heart disease and cancer. How the fukk does that all change if u are a Black rapper? The number #1 cause of death for rappers is gun violence. WTF?
    :mindblown:

    Is this the chickens coming home to roost due to the content that has dominated mainstream hip hop every since gangster rap took over after the golden era?? We never saw this in Jazz, Blues, Pop, Rock or R&B. Of all the phony outrage I see ya'll complaining about..None of u fake "woke and broke" shea butter weirdos are addressing this. This is an epidemic and no one is addressing this. Read it for yourself.

    You have that part wrong though. The shea butter biscuit weirdos and woke con-us community wouldn't give a shyt about this issue in the first place. Shea butters are white feminists aligned so they don't care about the degradation of black men. Both only focus on issues that affect them personally, not for the benefit of the community as a whole. All that black pride they talk is bullshyt bc they're only accountable to themselves. The real black activists and movements move in silence and don't run under those types of terms - "woke" and "shea butter" that's nothing but internet shyt and compu -c00ns.

    But my thing is - you can't just wholesale blame rap for this. The problems and environment that contribute to the issues that you speak of, need to be talked about. The enabling and support needs to be addressed too, bc you have 17-18 yr old kids (and yes, they are still kids imo) who use this as an influence and haven't acquired enough knowledge to have enough discernment. Shyt, you have adults that act the fool. I listened to primarily rap coming up - I went to school every day, stayed on track for the most part (but idk, from myself, as a woman's perspective it may be different bc I had people to keep me in check). The negative issues contributing to the mindset need to be factored in..

    Wait you're shocked by this? They're dying in their 20's man. That's not the heart disease demo.

    Dude . . People been talking about rapping and not needing a vest since 1989

    Not because they aren’t black

    Not because they weren’t rapping

    But because they don’t participate in a lifestyle that begets bullets

    But wouldn't Hip Hops influence on society itself be the contributing factor to the problems of the enviornment? Black people were victims of injustice, poverty, racism, gang culture, bad neighborhoods all before Hip Hop existed but the majority of people in those genres were not killed by gun violence. Like I said we never saw this with Jazz or R&B. At some point u have to ask why just hip hop? What is attracting all this gun violence as being the death of rappers.

    What was the enviornments problem when Tupac got shot in Vegas? Thats not something that usually happens in that area.

    What was the enviornment when Biggie got shot leaving a Vibe party? Thats not somewthing that usually happens after an afterparty.


    Suge got shot at a Kanye party. Bustas security killed at a video shoot. If I cant blame hip hop and its aura then I dont know what else to blame because no ther genre attracts this pattern of gun violence.

    Pac and Biggie didnt die in urban comminities. And gun violence is not the #1 killer of Black people.

    But I'm talking about how the majority of rappers deaths are by gun violence. Has nothing to do with the urban comminities because as I pointed out heart disease and cancer is the #1 killer of Blacks in the US. Mentioning urban communities is irrelevant because we had those issues when R&B was dominant and R&B singers were not dying by gun violence. Blacks dying from the gun is at a lower percentage...Unless u are a rapper.


    Yes I am shocked by this....I didnt know that info until I read that list. Are you saying this is common knowledge?

    the issue like in anything in life involving money is drug crews, and gangsters behind the scenes... it's the same issues with reggae

    :leostare:

    Just because the big name black entertainers weren't getting personally shot back in the 20's-80's of other genres do you really think there wasn't any violence, or criminal activity going on?

    I think there was a thread awhile back in in tlr about the ruined lives of black musicians and singers of maybe the 40's-80's and their lives were horror stories


    advocate for better education, gun reform, and rappers not advocating tuning your children into junkies

    but what even is your point

    when you consider what specific kind of rappers are getting shot at it, and who they surrounded themselves with, why is it a surprise?

    This has nothing to do with the what I'm talking about. I'm not talking about violence or criminal activity surrounding Black entertainers from 20 - 80. I'm talking about how this one specific genre called hip hop has the greater majority of its participants killed by gun violence. We never seen this with any other genre. Address that part.
