My 11-year-old son likes the hip-hop music that is played on a local radio station. He takes hip hop and break dance classes and is pretty good at it. I am concerned about the type of music he wants to listen to- Lil Jon, 50 Cent, etc. As my screen name implies, I love music of all types and play all genres (country, top 40, etc.) As an adult, I think that there is an artistic value to all of it, even rap. HOWEVER, I think that songs about bitches and hoes being on the pole, women being raped, life being all about robbing people and having a lot of money and what not is inappropriate. On the other hand, we are an average white middle class family and we live in a small rural area. The idea of the Kings of Krunk showing up here is laughable (LOL). If it matters, my son is an all "A" honor roll student and has never been in trouble at school. I don't want to overdo it as far as keeping him too sheltered but I am having a hard time with this one.
