As America’s most popular genre, rap music’s dangerous effects are being felt in all of America—and the rest of the world.

Themes of murder and violence gave birth to rap music. One study found that 65 percent of rap songs from 1987 to 1993 referenced physical violence. Today, at least four of the top five rap artists incorporate violent lyrics in their music. A 2015 study found that murder is the cause of death for over half of all hip-hop artists.

Over time, drugs and sex were incorporated into hip-hop’s foundations. It’s as common to see a news report of a rapper overdosing on drugs as it is to hear that he was killed in a gang-related shooting.

Rap is the background music to the mass shootings that are common in places like inner-city Chicago. Rap is the soundtrack to gang initiation, violence and radicalization of young, fatherless men. It is played in drug-fueled sex romps in nightclubs and parties.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, exposure to rap music is associated with increase drug abuse and violent behavior. What else can one expect from a genre that glorifies guns, violence and the objectification of women?
