Exactly. Nobody was actually advocating shooting up a bar or other dirty deeds. I understand some rap is more political in nature and I agree that there is rampant racism and minorities get f***ed, a recurring lyric. However, hatred breeds hatred and it's rare to hear a political rap lyric that does more than justify the anger. Hatred and anger have become normalized.

Me...rapping and mocking rappers!

Originally recorded this number on my brand new Fostex X-30 4 track cassette recorder and Boss DR-220A drum machine!

Redid it on a DAW with 220A drum samples and a friend made this video...

Just think, if you had gotten more hugs all of this could have been avoided.

Its fine if you just personally aren't really into it, but I put "rap hate" as the equivalency of people calling rock and roll "devil's music" that's "nothing but noise." Inherently closed minded, self-sheltered, intentionally socially unaware clueless older folks living in a bubble.
Rock n' Roll IS the Devil's least it USED to be.

Therein lies the answer to the OP's question BTW
