This paper explains that the problem with rap music is that it perpetuates the worst of both black and white America by divorcing itself from its musical roots and presenting America in a negative light. The author believes that rap music is impure at its core because the more rappers thrive in the multinational market, which has left so much of their audience behind, the richer they get and are farther removed from the "boyz in the 'hood". The paper concludes that rap music does nothing to heal a world full of woe; whereas, both of its predecessors in musical genres, gospel and rhythm and blues, do this.
