Aside from the music itself, which I find monotonic and boring, the lyrics are offensive and have done nothing to improve the socioeconomic conditions of minority groups (except for the artists themselves). In many ways, this music legitimizes and glorifies the dysfunctional world these people live in.
There is soooooo much wrong with these statements I don't even know where to begin. As a matter of fact I'm going to leave it at that. Stay naive dude. I ain't mad atcha', but ain't glad atcha' neitha'.
