Am I the only one who thinks that Takeoff doesn't really get much attention like the rest of the Migos group members like Quavo and Offset?

Takeoff probably does a lot behind the scenes than most of Migos music fans will never be aware of. So perhaps it may come across that way were Takeoff doesn't get much attention from Migos fans.

Takeoff has a laid-back personality, but his flow is the hardest out of the group. He's the best lyricist in the group.

He is definitely underrated because he has bars. He's definitely the "Ice Cube" of the group if ya can remember NWA.

People probably feel like this because he was left off of Bad and Boujee.

Something must be done to address the rap music industry.

The pattern of successful hip-hop musicians dying at a young age must end.

You have got to ask yourself why aren't female rappers getting murdered. The answer is that their music isn't heavily gang-affiliated and as toxic as their male counterparts. Once again and for clarification purposes, I am not saying there aren't gangster female hip-hop artists of course they exist.

Music as an artform is such a powerful weapon. If you understand anything about energy and sound it's such a strong programming tool. And the culture that surrounds hip-hop records is one of blowing your opps head off and not honoring your kin.
 
As long as major record labels and their subsidiaries continue to reap millions of dollars from hip-hop music, little will change in terms of the message that rappers spread. At the same time, record labels somewhat can't be blamed since they don't force musicians to rap about whatever they want in their tracks.

Hip-hop was always about beef i.e., battle rap, or in other words, let's say initially it was just beef over who is the hottest rapper. Then later on came the gangster rap era which ushered in personal beef for example Tupac Shakur vs. Christopher Wallace (Biggie Smalls). Therefore, the music is not creating the atmosphere but rather the atmosphere is creating the music.

Rap music did not create a culture of violence but it will continue to exist if things like poverty and mass incarceration aren't addressed. Often, rappers speak about their own realities or the realities of their communities. However, there is no connection between Kirshnik Khari Ball's senseless murder and his music or dissing someone.

A huge majority of mainstream hip-hop is too toxic.

One will be a fool to try and defend it in contemporary times.

Look, the hip-hop music business is not a root cause but it's definitely an amplifier. BTW, why doesn't anyone say the same about other genres of music that explore violence, pain, trauma, drugs, and, etc? Genres like Death-doom, Funeral doom, Pornogrind, and all that stuff are even worse in terms of lyrical content and overall behavior. Y'all remember the story of Connor Betts the lead singer of Menstrual Munchiesm, huh?

I think gangster rap can be the problem and the symptom. Let’s not pretend that music doesn’t inspire and influence people in both positive and negative ways. It’s no secret that social economic dispositions are at the root of gang activity, and it creates a cycle of emulation. Young kids will see their icons make it by being studio gangsters. In summary, gangster rap is part of the problem but not the whole problem.

Sure, I wholeheartedly agree with you. There's rap that's expressive and there's rap that's toxic e.g., hip-hop tracks that promote gangbanging and being part of a set. It is insanity to keep making the same mistake over and over again, not realizing that the power to change lies within you.
