Rap is one of the most interesting music genres to have ever existed (and continues to exist). What other music forms cannot do, rap accomplishes much faster and with greater impact. That is; to talk about reality, stigmatised topics and subjects that are harder to digest and simply uncomfortable to hear about. Rap has forever been a powerful music genre to create social change.
