Does rap music have any bearing on crime today?

I do listen to some rap music but it is filled with a lot of violence. Do you think that rap music has any direct affect on crime?

  • I think that if someone isgoing to commit a crime he (or she) may wait until they have been listening to ultra-violent rap music all day, but the music didn't make them do it. If they were going to do it, they would have done it if they'd been listening to elevator music!

  • I thinkI would commit suicide if I had to listen to elevator music all day, they wouldn't have to worry about me doing any crime after that!

  • I dont like rap music at all but I dont think it causes people to commit crimes...I figure they were gonna do it no matter what I guess maybe some people get idead from the music but in the long run they were gonna do it no matter what it just might have happened a different way...
