Why Are We Angry?

So someone was talking with me and pissed me the fuck off.  I played one of my raps for them and they asked me “Why are all rappers angry?” Why are we so angry?! Have you visited a hood? Look at the kids who don’t have meals. Look at the slips on our doors. Look at the guy getting beat by a cop just because.  Yeah, I don’t see any reason for us to be angry.

Rap is our expression. You guys had rock n roll, jazz, and even blues (or whatever you listened to).  To be honest, I haven’t really listened to enough of the music to be able to speak on the anger, but in the 90s I know rock took a darker angrier turn.  Every generation has their own way of expressing themselves.  As the poor get poorer and the hoods get more desperate, our raps are getting to get angrier because it’s our only outlet.
