Be stupid crazy about Britney Spears behind and pop music period. She's giving all Brittany's a bad name. Then again, we would really focus into R&B and probably taken back Rock music.

I'd just be listening to more jazz, funk, and r&b. I'd probably get a little more into rock and maybe I'd listen more to that classical music I have on my mp3 player =P.

Ignorance would dwell on an even further basis.

Creativity would be at an all time LOW.

There would actually be a race war.

1. one of the biggest ignorances would be racial relations, stereotypes, etc.

hip hop has brought together cultures of all sorts. When hip hop was still new, it was thought to just be a 'black' or 'urban' thing.... now its multi-cultural...

me personally i (along with probly most black ppl) used to think white ppl couldnt rap.... reason being Vanilla Ice but we all know thats true... even after Eminem dropped so ppl i knew still wanted to hate. Theyd just say, Eminem is the only good white rapper in the world then... NOT True... there's dudes in the underground & UK that spit hot coals.


2. Social problems

--->a. the extent of poverty (Ghetto Life)
--->b. corrupt cops
--->c. drug epidemic
--->d. sexual exploitation (pimp & ho's)


[i think imma have to do this later, but feel free to start up on it ]

If it wasn't for hip hop we would probably be into dance music! Hip Hop is so expansive........we wouldn't have hot dances to do at clubs.....our culture would be boring.......Hip Hop alone in my opinion has formed black people into what we are now!
We wouldn't have DJing, Rapping, Beatboxing, Breakdancing,Graffiti and of course Bling-Bling! But after Bling-Bling came out I think thats when Hip Hop changed into this lifestyle in rap music, which focuses on symbols of wealth and status like money, jewelry, cars, and clothing. BET would sure as hell not exsist.....but hell its not like it did anything good anyway!

Negative things it brought:
The glorification of the thug
Black adolescents are becoming sexually active at ages younger than other youth and are suffering from HIV/AIDS at a rate higher than other groups.
High School Drop Outs
Violence and Glorication of Drugs

BET would exist/have existed... the popularity would definatly be down... but it started as a black televison network... im bout 100% sure BET would exist in some way or form... afterall jazz & gospel would still be played, & black sitcoms
