Yes there are underlying reasons to explaining the content of rap, but if you want to justify the content, be my guest... I'm not going there. But don't give rap a little fairy tale image of having an artistic expression with high levels of thought, when in actuality, a lot of social negativity is expressed in a glorified means.

I can listen to rap because I understand that it's a social reflection, but I don't "ignore" anything about it, and don't accuse me as such because I disagree with you.

FYI, I've listened to, and own, almost all of 2pac's albums. Hence, I knew that "changed man" was a gangster track, as opposed to "changes" (that was not on my list). 2pac had hardship, sure, but he also died a millionaire. He died over street non-sense, promoting sexism, gansterism, and racism to his people on the way to his grave.

It's impressive you know the motives of an unsolved murder. You should contact the LVPD

it may be possible, even probable but there have been several cases where drive-bys have been utilized to draw attention away from the real motives

Is anyone else digging new Titus Andronicus? By the looks of it this isn't exactly the place, but you never know.

I actually haven't heard anything from them since The Airing Of Grievances, which I liked. Should I check out the new album?

Definitely, if you liked the last one I can't imagine you wouldn't enjoy The Monitor. Everything that made The Airing Of Grievances good is just amplified on this one. One of my favorites of the year for sure.

Mitchy Slick, one of my favorite and IMO more underrated West Coast hip hop artists today...

Reks' new album R.E.K.S. was so worth the wait. This **** is ridiculous. One of my favorite MC's today.

Here's three tracks from the album:
