Hip hop started as a tool to keep urban youth from getting in touch with crime.
I recently read a blog post about commercialism in hip hop. The author of the blog was writing that commerce can not hurt the art.
I got to agree with him, because rap music is getting more terrain in the field of music. In USA it is a huge music genre. So rappers can promote a product just well as actors. The best example is Sprite. I think because rap music is getting global attention. Not only corporate world can profit from it.This way the rappers are getting more attention too.
I think so long the rappers remains original. They can profit from promoting products in commercials or whatever. I think so long it is socially responsible there is nothing wrong with commerce and hip hop.
