Is Gangsta Rap Hurting America's Children?

First of all what is Gangsta Rap? The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language defines gangsta rap as NOUN: A style of rap music associated with urban street gangs and characterized by violent, tough-talking, often misogynistic lyrics. Recently Bill O'Reily held a discussion with Grammy nominated rapper Camrom, Ceo Damon Dash of Rockafella Records and the principal of John Reynolds Elementary School in Philadelphia, Salome Thomas-El. During this discussion they debated about whether gangsta rap music is extremely harmful to his inner-city students. This is an important issue that should be addressed and I want to know how you feel.
