Topic: Who Is To Blame For Rap Music's Negative Content? (Conversation)

R&B icon Eric Benet recently made a comment on social media in which he stated that rappers whose music promotes a negative message are merely blackface representatives of white supremacy (3:20). This drew a response from Fat Joe who stated that "It's just entertainment" (4:58).
The panel discuss this topic and ask why so much of today's rap contains morbid messages (10:05) as well as where the culpability lies for the violent lyrics, message of self-harm, and other negative content in the music - with the artists or with the labels and broadcasters (14:30)?
