Post Influence of hip-hop/rap-music

hi i have to do a presentation in school about this theme and i think it would be great if i could show the results of my questions........so i hope u have some time to answer the questions..thx
Excerpts of the Eminem Song “ Rock Bottom”:
Ah yeah, yo!
This song is dedicated to all the happy people
All the happy people who have real nice lives
And who have no idea whats it like to be broke as ****….
That's Rock Bottom
When this life makes you mad enough to kill
That's Rock Bottom
When you want something bad enough you'll steal
That's Rock Bottom
When you feel you have had it up to here
Cause you mad enough to scream but you sad enough to tear……
But **** it, if you know the rules to the game play
Cause when we die we know were all going the same way

1. What do you think about this song? Do you like it?
2. Is rap-music your favourite music ?
3. Do you pay attention on the text of a song?
4. Do you think music can influence you? in which way (good or bad)?
5. Does listening to music provoke any emotions/moods in you?
6. In which mood/situation does music influence you most?
7. Do you think Hip-Hop/ Rap has a different influence on boys than it has on girls?
8. Do you think there is a “message” in every rap song?
9. Should the government censor lyrics of songs that are violent or expletive, for example in Hip- Hop Songs?
10. How old are you?
11. Female / Male?

I would lose the Eminem lyrics at the top and the first question. It detracts from the overall effect of your thread.

1. What do you think about this song? Do you like it?
No, I don't like Eminem.
2. Is rap-music your favorite music?
No.
3. Do you pay attention on the text of a song?
Yes
4. Do you think music can influence you? in which way (good or bad)?
Yes, good and bad
5. Does listening to music provoke any emotions/moods in you?
No, I match my music to my moods, not vise-versa
6. In which mood/situation does music influence you most?
Not a specific mood
7. Do you think Hip-Hop/ Rap has a different influence on boys than it has on girls?
I wouldn't know, I'm going to say yes though
8. Do you think there is a “message” in every rap song?
Not every song, but a good number yes
9. Should the government censor lyrics of songs that are violent or expletive, for example in Hip- Hop Songs?
On the radio
10. How old are you?
17
11. Female / Male?
Female

This sounds like some report on can Rap music turn you into a deranged physco, killer. The answer is no, and common sense should tell people that, not a report.
