If the truth was told, no one really knows how thesesocial issues started and since no one knows who to started it, everyone blamesone another. The youth of today blame depression and anxiety on the harsh rulesthat have been put by the elders of a society or home.
If you would keep upwith social medias like twitter, you would see how every child born after 1994has a problem with the way the elders handle the issues. On the other hand, theelders of today like to blame gay marriage and religious freedom act on theyouth because they think the youth is just too open minded and always want tobe right and not take any advice from them. Most of the elders say that ‘theproblem with the youth is that they are just stubborn kids who think they knowbetter than the ones before them. They think that since they have betterclothes than the ones before them then they have more racks than the onesbefore them.’ Where the statementbasically means that if the youth has better opportunities than the elders,they then think they have more experience than the elders. I can’t debateagainst that statement, but I believe that if everyone will stop looking forsomeone to blame when an issue occurs, and do something about them then Ibelieve the world can become a better place for the next generation.
First,what are social issues? How are they important and why do we need to be awareof them? To be direct, social issues are issues that affect every individual inthis world and since humans need to socialize with one another, if there aresocial issues then they can’t live in harmony. There are so many social issuesthat are in the public of the world of today, but the sad truth is that mostpeople in control don’t try to do anything about them. Even if they do try,they are not effective and that’s killing a huge number of people. Socialissues like LGBT adoption rights, gay marriage, racism, depression, anxiety,sexual abuse and religious freedom act are just examples from the major issuesin the world. These issues are the most common and contain the most votes againstthem by research. Why social issues are aproblem and shouldn’t be ignored. There are many more subgenres that should be mentionedbecause a huge number of people like them like, gangster rap, trap hop, and edmpop. Although the disadvantage with them is that they are not able to achieveto leave a message to the listeners compared to the other major genres.
Insteadthey just give theme that has to do with having fun and enjoying life, by goingto parties and abusing substances. This is a music genre that fuses vocal andinstrumental elements of hip hop with various forms of rock. It’s not asubgenre but it is related to hip hop because of having big, lurching beatsthat are occasionally overdubbed over scratching and beat box beats. This genrewas originated in the 1980s and has grown to inspire most rock and rap loversto listen to the new artists that touch this genre in their art.Rap Rock This is a subgenre of trap music, but it also falls underhip hop. It originated in the mid 2010s in the United states and is notrespected as much as any other genre.
Many believe that the genre is a uniquegenre of the society of artists of today, but it’s not because it was there inthe 1990s. Mumble rap consist of mumble rappers and the reason why they areclassified as mumble rappers is because the critiques say they lack lyricism.Mumble Rap The term ‘trap’ was usually used to refer to placeswhere drug deals took place but in recent years it has incorporated with popand electronic dance music. The term itself came from Atlanta, Georgia. Trapmusic a subgenre that only originated during the late 1990s/early 2000s fromSouthern Hip Hop in the southern part of the United States. The typical themesfor trap music is street life, poverty, violence and harsh experiences thatartists have faced in their urban city surroundings.
David Drake of Complexonce wrote that ‘the trap in the early 2000’s wasn’t a genre, it was a real place’,showing that the term was later adopted to describe the ‘music made about that place.’Trap music This is a subgenre of hip hop that challenges thedominant cultural, political, philosophical, economic consensus, and socialissues. It’s not only known as ‘conscious hip hop’, but it’s also known as’socially conscious hip-hop’ or even ‘political hip hop’. These terms aresometimes interchangeably but there are used to describe rap music with strongpolitical messages and themes. The most common themes for conscious hip hop areusually religion, aversion to crime and violence, culture, the depictions of thestruggles of ordinary people and the economy. The most important fact aboutconscious hip hop is that it often seeks to raise awareness of social issues,leaving the listeners to form their own opinions.

In some parts of theworld, rap music is called ‘Hip-Hop music’ and that proves thatit’s the same thing. The types of RAP are enormous, but I would gladly like topoint out the major ones of today’s generation.
Something we should try to understand is that when we sayrap music we don’t only apply to one type of music. RAP music is just a term welike to use when we hear or notice a certain type tune that falls under hiphop. Just like how there many forms of English, or even many forms of food,there is also many forms of RAP. RAP, which is short for rhythm and poetry, isusually called hip hop because over time the superiors of the societies wanteda more suitable term for it. They eventually decided to call rap as hip hop andmany youths got confused thinking there is a difference between them both butthere isn’t. Types of RAPIn this essay I will furtherdiscuss about the social issues of the world and how they are a major problemof the world.
Also, about how they can be related to rhythm and poetry andteach the youth about the issues of today. I will also give out reasons whysocial issues shouldn’t be ignored. In the part where I discuss about the typesof rap, I will base the information from years of listening to the art. Thus,brings us to the origin of the topic question. Is rhythm and poetry aneffective way to educate the youth about the social issues in the world, orit’s not effective and the belief that it can be effective is just an illusion.
Ever since the first RAP song wasmade, the superior race at those times didn’t respect the fact that the AfricanAmerican community would take rhythm and poetry to express their struggles asthe lowest race to the superior races’ eyes. Rappers like 2pac, Biggie and manymore used to fight against this fact and got themselves titled as ‘YoungLeaders’ because of this fact. Despite the appearances of violence,nudity and drug abuse in their many forms of art, the rappers were still ableto express their struggles as well as make awareness about them. Positively,the art form of RAP grew impressively, making a lot of youths from the 90s wantto take charge and express their lifestyles in today’s society. So, knowingthat fact, one may ask himself/herself if rap can teach the youth of todayabout the social issues that humanity suffers from. Social issues like genderequality, sexual abuse, domestic violence, LGBT rights and racism are all majorin this generation, many come from previous generations too. These socialissues affect many individuals and the fact that most of them are not talkedabout as much as how they are affecting societies, kills to know that the youthmay not understand the importance of them and how they should be prevented.
RAP,also known as rhythm and poetry, is a musical form of vocal delivery thatincorporates ‘rhyme, rhythmic speech, and street vernacular’. It is performedin a variety of ways but usually over a backbeat or musical accompaniment. Thisform of music was made in the 1970s by some jockeys and urban African Americansto make money as well as show their different type of lifestyles they have in acreative way. RAP has been known to be not respected by the many societiesbecause most elders in those societies believe that RAP is not well mannered.They usually classify it as ‘Hooligans Music’, where they even put racial stereotypes about how this type ofmusic only suits a certain race.
