Tune in right now on 91.5 FM or wbez.org/player to listen as I talk with Jesse Menendez about how music plays a role in promoting negativity and violence in our communities.
"When it comes to violence in music who is responsible for its promotion? Is it the record label? Is it the media? The consumer? I talked with Maks G of the popular Chicago Hip Hop blog GoWhere Hip Hop about media's responsibility to its audience. We also discussed blogs and the role they play in promoting the negativity that sometimes accompanies the music?
When the Chief Keef phenomena started, only a few artists in the Hip Hop community spoke out on the volatile nature of Keef's music and the harm it could possibly do. Psalm One was one of those artists. Hear my conversation with Psalm One on Chief Keef's music and what impact it may have on some of our underserved communities." — Jesse Menendez
