    It's not about staying "ignorant" it's about not wanting to listen to such trash.

    Wait, give us a few examples of Gangsta Rap stories you feel are worth hearing. Seriously. Maybe I'm wrong, post a few lyric sheets, or song titles and I'll listen to/read them.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It seemed like it was about staying ignorant when you said, "That's a story no one should want to hear."

    In any case, "Hellrazor" by Tupac is the quintessential song that people hate based on a surface evaluation. It's pretty violent and he spends a lot of the song appearing to glorify violence (many people would stop listening here and call him a trash thug), but there's also a contradiction in the whole song where he's clearly aware that the violence he participates in is wasteful and juvenile. It's pretty much a story of how he acquired his mentality and its negative effects.

    Another one is "One Love" by Nas. It's written as a letters to his friends in jail - it's essentially a description of life in his neighborhood along with criticism of the gang banger life coupled with a desire to enter it.

    I <3 Eminem. I've heard enough to know that there's some amazing stuff in there. I think from what I've read, by and large it's trash. But certainly not all, not by a long shot.

    I guess it is only ok to talk about bad things when it is sung to the cry in your beer country tunes or make you wanna kill yourself blues or something

    That statement reveals a great ignorance about music.

    Disco may have been shallow 'feel-good' music, but it was highly orchestrated, involving many talented backup musicians, horns, drums, bass...
