...you missed the boat entirely on the article. It was about perpetuating the myths of "gangsta" life as heard in today's rap lyrics (namely 50 Cent). A decade ago, it wasn't such a myth. But now, though it's still not a picnic, it's greatly exaggerated and embellished. But they're still trying to sell this myth to white teenage suburban boys.
It wasn't about representing the African-American community as a whole.

: : Wow... the article starts out talking about something I know nothing about. The entire first paragraph was gibberish, because I know nothing about this music... not performer names, nothing.
