Reason #4: Lil Wayne is putting rap music front and center for all the wrong reasons.
We're not going to sit here and tell you that all rap lyrics are squeaky clean. If you spend more than five minutes a day listening to rap, then you know that there are plenty of lyrics out there that would probably outrage people if they knew about them. But there's also a lot of good, solid music. Those outside of the rap community aren't thinking about that right now, though. All they're thinking about are lyrics about date rape and Emmett Till because of Rick Ross and Lil Wayne. Their offensive lyrics are a representation of rap music right now, even though they really shouldn't be.
