Sport in general... Hip-Hop Music promotes greed, sexism, crime, money, power, hate, commercialisation, exploitation and the behaviour and what it represents ruins sport and boxing... thus creating the ridiculous stereotype that all African-Americans are badasses who smoke crack, wear BLING, hang with bithces and hoes and could kick anyone's ass because they're the best... I reckon Hip-Hop Music should stay out of sport... in particular boxing... because it just ruins it for me... does anybody agree with me? If you don't... please state your reason as to why! If you don't know what the hell I am talking about :dunno: that's okay as well... by the way... I am not racist... I just hate Hip-Hop Music!

Hip hop doesnt promote any of those things. Hip hop is a culture and that culture expresses its self through music. Therefor we have hip hop music. Hip hop is no longer a movement. Movements pass by. Hip hop is a way of life. It belongs where ever it is.

Hip hop/rap belongs in boxing. Winky Wright fights for State Property which consists of Beanie Siegel, Young Gunz, etc. Many rappers are huge boxing fans including my personal favorite Lil Wayne. I just believe that going from worrying about money to being able to throw money away is just something that some boxers/outher sports figures get caught up in. I.E. PBF, although he's my favorite.

Thank you. You do as well. The fact is that you really can't find someone who doesn't enjoy some kind of music. Most listners are drawn to music that he/she can relate to. Many boxers come from not necessarily poverty but we'll just say unwealthy. Most rappers/almost all come from the same situation. It's a relation thing and I will admit that rap is everything you said it is but you're missing the heart. I listen to rappers who I can feel.

That is all.
