Rap Music Can Be Positive, Too
Rapper K’naan is a great example of how rap music can be a positive influence on listeners. K’naan, who hails from war-torn Somalia, is one of the most gifted rap music lyricists making music today. His music doesn’t focus on crime and the criminal element. Instead, it focuses on his experiences with war, and how they changed him forever.
K’naan is probably best known for his “Waving Flag”, which was used by Coca Cola during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. K’naan is also releasing a new album, “God, Country or the Girl” this month. The rapper also serves as a reminder that rap music can offer a positive influence to listeners.
The commercial success of K’naan’s approach to rap music proves that there is indeed a place in the market for rap music that doesn’t support, promote or glorify the criminal element that has been associated with rap music.
This comes at a time when self-produced music is finding relatively easy entry into the marketplace, and independent music producers are getting the technical support they need to create, publish and distribute their own music.
Computer software like DubTurbo enables music producers to create their own sound. By providing all of the tools required to record music professionally, DubTurbo supports the move toward self produced music and may help change the face of rap and hip-hop music for good.
