I think one of the best things about hip hop music is that the rappers can say anything on records. I think this freedom got to be used with responsibility. Because the rappers have the freedom that doesn't mean you can be reckless. I think using this freedom of speech with responsibility can do the hip hop community some good.
This way rappers can easily influence anyone with the message they have to deliver. Let's say if a rapper says we all going to wear clothes made of hemp and this will be more environment friendly. This will contribute to a greener environment. If a famous rapper would promote this in a song. Within in a few weeks the factories can produce clothing made of hemp. If a famous rappers like Nas or Jay-Z would say lets stop the Japanese from killing the whales. Then this would have influence on the activists.
I think only rap music there is the space to express your true feelings and free to speak about issues what is on your mind.
