Why does Hip Hop have to exist?

I wish that it never existed period,Why did God let it exist knowing it was going to mispresent blacks later on.I know not all hip hop was bad but I feel that the black communtiy could have made it and succeded without rap music existed like still have a black president meanign Obama without all of the negative critism over the years such as sagging and also remember when baggy clothes were the style.I wish blacks were like they were before hip hop existed and music could be good again like R&B&Soul which was better before the 1980's.Cant God reverse time and prevent it from existing and blacks till succeed cause I hate blacks being criticized and misrepresented in the media.

    Hip Hop is not specifically "black". It was born in urban culture and associated with the black community, but just because you're black doesn't mean you can rap. Look at Lil Wayne, he sucks. Than you got underground artists like R.A., Vinnie Paz and asian guys like Snacky Chan and Jin, among others. Look 'em up, especially Chan (I consider him "softer" than other underground rappers).

    @Unexpected Genius: Can you name any rappers aside form the ones you hear in the mainstream? Hm? Guess not.

    Well most of the underground folks rapping ain't exactly growing up in a comfy little suburb with two parents and a dog. And last I recalled, Avenged Sevenfold and similar bands swear aplenty, and yet they're touted as being greater than hip hop artists. Just get past the cursing and get the message of the song. -_-

    some every physique is asserting it is right if hip hop did no longer exist. i do no longer even evaluate the rubbish on the radio hip hop, that's what i think those solutions are per. Underground hip hop in no way dies...

    STFU. Just avoid hiohop music if you dont like it and stop wining. Hiphop is big, and you cant really do anything about it. Wow, your judgemental. I respect your oppinion, but there's no point of wining when you can just avoid it. Blacks are always going to be criticized, cause people in the world are just narrow minded.

    Your looking at the style the media puts on it and no not all African Americans like hip hop. Did you know if jazz wasn't created neither would hip hop be?

    I think at certain extent, hip hop and R&B are trademarked creation of Black revolution. They make good music. I like it, and I would not wise to God to diminish a creation. I agree some [minority of] black people often use meaningless words, hateful speech, racist and sexist slurs and other garbage and they are just considered muscially extremist oxymoron.

    God bless music.

    There is actually really good hip hop music.

    You're just being judgmental.

    Give me an entire CD of hip hop that doesn't talk about drugs, swearing, gangs, screwing with somebody and I might actually pay attention.
