Commercial Hip Hop is the only genre that has an abundance of spins on the radio. “70 percent of people who buy hip hop music are white.” (Butler 128) which explains the fact that most of hip hop music is promoted according to the demographic that’s in demand. In most cases, the publics demands are what is most important to record companies and mass media. Most white people want to keep and have the idea that black people are bad people which is why they love to see them talk about doing drugs and how they love being violent. This conception reminds me of the perception of black people during slavery. Masters of plantation grounds thought that we were unworthy and that we were always violent and didn’t have “common sense or intelligence”.
