Is it possible for hip hop music to have a positive influence on teenagers? If a music genre is popular, then it must carry a positive influence. But whether hip hop music influence can stay positive is still a question. Hip hop in the past had a huge influence, but not exactly the positive one that people have wanted.

The hip hop music influence in those days was dark, filled with anarchy and violence, targeting every aspect of life outside the inner city. Being created by people with a distorted view of equality and who are tired of the system, it influences people to think only for themselves. Lyrics of hate and degradation against people was so captivating that it led teens into doing things unexpected of them, awakening the darkness they had inside.

To achieve a positive influence over your listeners, especially impressionable teens, the music must have a positive influence. Now, early hip hop music lacks that. Society as a whole blamed it for teens who were acting out for reasons of their own. If you don`t like a particular genre, society does have a tendency to blame that genre rather than examine itself for not giving those teens what they needed.

This influence over the years has changed as the music itself changed. Recent artists have brought the poetry of its roots back, and the violent themes have been toned down until it is nearly non-existent. We now have a style that critics label as pop wannabes. Things must have been going the right way, since now, more than ever and in spite of all the critics, hip hop music influence have gone larger.

The positive tones of the hip hop music influence today has brought back ideas of romancing your loves instead of harming them to get what you want, and is beginning to spread the word of how giving back to your society is more important than tearing it down. Perhaps these new artists learned an important lesson failed to be seen by those they succeeded. If you live a hard, fast and brutal lifestyle, it will destroy you. Either dead, or in jail, many of them ended up regretting the wrong choices they`ve made.

Those who made it, on the other hand, made it big, and have used the hip hop music influence to create positive projects that are being embraced by their fans. Many of them have created volunteer organizations dedicated to giving back to the cities they grew up in, and improving the lives of those they left behind. The fans didn`t want to be left out, so a lot have joined their cause, raising volunteerism to an all time high.

If the hip hop music influence can be called anything today, it should be evolving. Many of the current artists have overcome difficulties in their lives, and have made that a theme that they are rebuilding their careers around. That influenced the listeners in a positive way, which is very important in today`s economic state. Rather than cry out in rage, they are recreating themselves in a better image, for the better.
