Love it or hate it, a gangsta rap mogul has been recognized by the library of Congress. The chronic by Dr Dre is now included in the library of Congress. Many have labeled it misogynistic, racist, and pro-criminal, but it's impact on society is none the less obvious. I will be arguing that gangsta rap was a form of neo-journalism that was very much needed in society. Before gangsta rap, most white middle-class Americans had no idea of the social pressures that plagued low-income inner city youths, most especially black youths. Gangsta Rap was a medium that brought the social attitudes of inner city black youths front and center and showcased these attitudes for all to see. Love it or hate it, gangsta rap gave all of us an insight into the lives and struggles of the low-income inner city black youths.
