    Death Row Record Analysis

    • 906 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The story told by Death Row Records is a cautionary tale about the grimy realities of the entertainment industry. It’s a story of drug gangs, and persistent harassment by the Police Department and the FBI . The records sold and made millions for the record labels generating more than $400 million in sales as well as making $100 million for annual revenue. But that didn’t mean the artists got paid. Compton didn't bring forth rap, however the music that fell off the streets of Los Angeles in the late 1980s took the lower class to another level, aesthetically and politically. The artist of this newly refined “Rap” included rappers Eazy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren and Dr. Dre (most of N.W.A). The “G-Funk” inspired beats and explicit lyrics, about drugs,…

How can you release photos that people can tell he wasn’t in danger of losing his life? The bullets some say were blanks and that he was still wounded. But the wounds were too deep to be blanks and wouldn’t have penetrated Tupac’s body like they did. Suge Knight,(Executive Producer of Death Row Records), never appeared for questioning.…

    Imagine having something that meant something significant. Something that meant something to a large group of people. Something that has been a longstanding part of a culture. Then that thing was given a negative connotation seemingly out of nowhere. This thing could have helped someone through hard times, something that spoke to them or something that has significance in their lives.

Hip-hop does contain lyrics and images that are misogynistic and violent, however to generalize the whole genre unacceptable with aspects that many other genres share as well is not targeting the obscenity, but is targeting the genre as a way to silence an inferior culture. Censorship, the act of…

    Driving down the road or walking on the sidewalk, one might hear someone blasting their rap music, full of vulgar language and profanity, from their car. One might conclude the driver and their passengers are up to no good, or they are bad people. Instead of rushing to judgement, it is important to recognize the impact age, race and gender has on one’s opinion of music and one’s opinion of the people listening to or writing certain types of music. Rap music is primarily believed to be enjoyed by…
