Whether these comments are racist, misogynistic, or just downright disrespectful it's easy to associate the entire hip-hop culture with these words of hate. On this Central Standard, we look specifically at misogyny in hip-hop music.</p><p> Tue, 26 Mar 2013 14:44:56 +0000 Susan B.

He was 12 when he first started writing lyrics, 15 when he started to produce his own beats. He became part of the underground “gangster rap” subculture. This is when Scott became “Macc James,” a member of the Chop It Up Clicc. But as Scott got older with kids of his own, he realized the power and influence music can have on young people’s lives.</p><p> Tue, 04 Sep 2012 16:23:35 +0000 Susan B.
