LaKeith Stanfield calls out toxicity of gangsta rap

LaKeith Stanfield Wants Black People To Stop Glorifying The "Dangerous Toxicity" Associated With Gangster Rap​

"The dangerous toxicity associated with this glorified black serial killer and killed music, and imagery got people thinking it’s cool to hurt those that look like them and ONLY them," LaKeith wrote.​

"It’s ok to embrace the realities of life in the harder areas, but let’s think about NOT holding up this behavior in our circles. Let’s make it cool to embrace life, travel, and learn new things!"​

The Atlanta star went on to explain that although the Black community's decision to rid themselves of listening and making music that glorifies violence is just one small solution to the issues that plague our community, it's still a great place to start.​

Gangster Rap, (which I don't even believe it is called by anyone anymore) has been around for over thirty years. He might as well say let's not listen to the devil's rock 'n roll music.

When he talks about gangsta rap he means rap with violent, misogynistic lyrics such as drill music/rap which is popular today. He's right.

I guess it's the same way that heavy metal music, or to put it in terms this author would use "head banger music," makes white people anti-social, aggressive and violent. Now we have a culture of sociopathic mass shooters. I am not saying it's the single cause if it, just as "gangster rap" isn't, but it definitely plays into the rage just as gangster music plays into violent fantasies.

And to the people saying "Finally..." this is a conversation that has been going on for thirty years too. Just no one listens to it when there is money to be made by both black and white people. It's not gonna change and it's not gonna go anywhere. And by the way, the black community isn't the ONLY community with large swaths of people who hate and blame Whitey. So maybe whitey needs to look at himself.

He's absolutely right. An end to toxicity in black music would have a huge effect in reducing pathology in that community. If the number of black children born out of wedlock was reduced by 50%, the effect would even be bigger.

Talented rappers seem to be getting killed weekly either in revenge beefs or robberies. I can't think of anything similiar ever happening to any white artist no matter what their music genre was. The rap culture is really sick.

In all honesty, I wish you all would stop with this conversation. Most of you aren't speaking from actual first hand experience and are only commenting on information that you are fed. You are speaking on a subject you have very little information on outside of what you read or what crosses your smart phone. Which is a shame because you live in a country surrounded by black people.

The majority of the black community DOES NOT live in the inner city. There are about 40 million black people in America. About 15 million of them live in the inner city. And even that 15 million isn't all the same. So when you speak of "the black community should do this and the black community should do that," you are painting with a very broad brush and it sounds ignorant. And it speaks volumes about the intentionally segregated lives you chose to lead. Most black people listen to gangster rap (it feels so stupid using that term, but there it is) and respond to it the same way most white people do who enjoy it - as a form of entertainment. It doesn't lead to violence nor does is dictate any codes for the way we chose to live our lives. We see it for what it is.

So just as when I actually - (gasp) - interact with white people in my daily life and I don't paint them with the broad brushstrokes of racism, apartheid, colonialism and genocide, globally and historically associated with their community, and chose to SEE them for individual they are, I ask that you do the same. And to start, it would be nice if we put this conversation to bed. Or at least, you should ask questions about things you might not understand instead of speaking from a place of authority.

No one is saying it isn't a problem. What is being said is what does it have to do with you and what authority do you have to speak on it - to even remotely address it as if you really care. In all honesty you don't care. That is the truth. So what would be the motivation behind commenting on something you really do not care about? I guess to point out that I am not guilty for the state of the a certain population of the black community. And guess what, you aren't. It's not your fault. So you can stop pretending to care about something you really don't care about to assuage some guilt that really isn't yours. There are other things I am sure you are guilty of participating in. I would search my heart for those things. But pinpointing one black rapper killing another won't wash away whatever it is that's really troubling you.

by Anonymousreply 32November 2, 2022 10:59 PM

Guilt knows no accuser. But your insistence on pointing out faults of people that have nothing to do with you - akin to some Bible thumper talking about the horrors of the gay community - would point to the fact that there is something you are feeling guilty about. It's usually always the case.

Nah. Half of Black America is middle class. 47% middle class, 12% upper class.

I would love to be able to live around mostly "my people" but unfortunately, that tends to come with nonsense and hood shit and I don't have the time nor patience for it. I was just in the hood earlier this week visiting my cousins and, sure enough, while there I heard gunshots (about 20 of them). In broad daylight. Later that afternoon, I turn on the news and see the breaking story about a shootout that occurred right around the fucking corner from where we were at.

I would think that a good number of white people think black people associate racism with them (which isn't true, btw). I think when someone hears the word colonialism, they picture a White nation, whether British, French or Dutch, to name a few, going into Africa, India, China and claiming it as their own. I am certainly not the only person who equates white people with Racism, Apartheid, Genocide (Holocaust, Russian Holocaust, Serbia, Native American) , with white people. But I do not paint every white person I meet with this history in the same way a lot of white people paint black people with the single brushstroke of gangster rap loving inner city dwellers.

Lakeith was a supporting cast member on ATLANTA. The Minos trio appeared in a season 2 episode, playing themselves, hunting a black man in a forest to murder him.

I think my personal turning point was a song by Playboi Carti where he rapped about shooting people indiscriminately.

But white people have proven, literally on a global scale, their penchant for dominating and subjugating other races of people and bringing them under their control. That is just a fact of world history.

The danger of gangster rap now is that generations are becoming increasingly more sociopathic with their complete detachment from a human experience. So this mentality combined with a music that casually promotes it is a recipe for disaster. So artist need to be more responsible with the way they chose to reflect the reality around them. They either need to promote alternatives to the lifestyle or not sing about it at all instead of just embracing it wholesale as means of making a buck to escape it.

The first major Gangsta Rap album came out about 37 years ago. That's why when people mention it now, protest it now, it sounds like people protesting the Devil's Rock 'n Roll music in 1988. But NWA was the first major group with Ice Cub, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E with Snoop Dogg as a Dr. Dre protege to follow. That is gansta rap. Today's music talks about taking percocet, stacking racks (one banded rack of bills = $1000) and bustin nuts and taking down anyone who gets in the way of you living your best life. Not sure what you would call it. I know Trap is a part of it - music played in Trap Houses (abandoned houses where drugs are cut, prepared and packaged). But I haven't listened to it for a while to even know if that is still a thing.

^ To keep it simple, it originated with mafia shit, specifically the Italian mafia. Gangsters from other crime families, when traveling, would check in with other crime family bosses if they knew they'd have to go to their area for business, leisure, etc. If a mafia member from one family (say NY) neglected to do that and called themselves wanting to prance around a place like Chicago without getting the okay from the leader of the crime family that runs that city, they may have found themselves in the morgue lamenting something about "how they massacred my boy."

So white people are claiming southern italians now? It's funny my husband's granddad used to say Italians aren't nohting but N-words turned inside out. Ha! Big ole French Canadian racist.

What r96 said. Can we just let this thread die now? Half of you don't even know any black people IRL.

I'd rather discuss Miss LaKeith Stanfield, who hides in plain sight. If he comes out next year I will point to this thread to let you bitches know how you are always talking about the wrong thing!

[quote]Gangsta rap was replaced a long time ago with songs about strippers and Cristal. Rap has been about sex and being/getting rich since the mid-2000s.

Nah...it's just both, now.

I didn’t know that Stanfield was a homophobe…not surprised at all though…
