In Britain the media liked to blame music for the riots that burned down sections of London and popped up in other cities in August. Steve Yates has something to say about that.

I don't think music can possibly be to blame for a riot. People tend to listen to music that speaks to them, that they can relate to; materialism was already there. Of course, it does help strengthen the relationship between listeners and their materialistic hearts.

Our materialistic tendencies stem way farther back than the introduction of rap. The media all around us promote it; as soon as you step out of your home you are bombarded by advertising designed to rewire your brain and create materialistic wants.

If you want to blame somebody, blame the government for permitting the extremes used by advertisers to get inside your head and rewire your thinking processes.

I dont think hip hop is to blame for the riot. Although we all know must of the people out there believe in what the hip hop artists say in their songs, knowing that is not true; media is the sector most to blame for this incident

Music, first is a form of expression. NOW, If people chose to listen to hip hop and react to having the need to make violence, It would not actually be the fault of the music itself. In this regard,the fault is entirely towards the people, who try to "twist," that form of art to justify their actions more so over, people have a CHOICE and the willpower to act or not.
If Violence and Sex oversells preventing the world from thinking, then you can just imagine how much more the world will be damaged. At least I think so.
