Not all hip hop uses it, and in general White hip hop artists don't
use it. Some hip hop is classic at this point. I mean old school stuff
from the 1970s and 1980s. That said, hip hop has a history of being
socially inappropriate, including of artists and songs that are
misogynistic and homophobic. (On the latter, one need only think of
Eminem.) To me, much of this seems adolescent. It's not stuff you'd
say in polite company. And the latter is kind of what I'm talking
about here. Someone riding around with Flowmaster and cranking out
beats is kind of not the standard of social appropriateness in today's
society. Don't you agree?
