What's wrong with society? What is wrong is people give up searching for the trust and sit back and blend in with the crowd. But that's not who I want to be. Blending in is not my thing.
My issue is race. I feel black people nowadays have to conform to this one ideal. We all have to be the same. We all have to be hard and ghetto and listen to only one genre of music which would be Rap and R&B. And if one of us steps out of the mold we're not black anymore. Well, that's dumb. When did music determine your racial background? Or a musical instrument? I can't believe the dumb things people say when you're doing something different.

And they didn't need the media to tell them that.
Music is philosophy. Every chord, every word tells a story. If you listen you will know its meaning.
