DJ Envy Questions The Media’s Involvement In Hip Hop Violence. A new edition of Hip Hop Homicides will air tonight, and it has sparked debate. Tragic events have long plagued the industry, but in recent years Hip Hop has taken the most hit. Hip Hop Homicides examines the gun violence that has taken the lives of several musicians. The lyrics, feuds, and carnage are widely discussed by fans when these tragedies take place. In addition to analyzing the topic, DJ Envy and Van Lathan raise objections about the media’s involvement.
Envy said, “If I hit you in the face right now, it won’t end because it’s on social media. “Because now that I’ve embarrassed you, you want to humiliate me in the same way,” she said.
Lathan mentioned Draymond Greene and Jordan Poole as well as the Will Smith and Chris Rock scene from the Academy Awards.
When everyone watched him get dotted in that manner, how can this brotha move on? Lathan inquired. We all have a part to play in this, Envy, I mean.
Hip Hop Homicides was created by 50 Cent and Mona Scott-Young for WEtv. As the show’s host, Van Lathan once more displays his journalistic prowess. He stated in a teaser that “as of 2022, there have been a shocking amount of rappers that have been assassinated.” “And more than 50 percent of those instances remain unresolved… We are here to call attention to these incidents.
An intimate glimpse at the demise of some of our favorite artists will be provided to viewers. The role of the media and the deaths of rappers like Pop Smoke, Mo3, and King Von are extensively examined. In addition to sharing posts of violent acts, outlets are also attacked for the way they cover such stories. Videos and pictures of fights are becoming common, but not everyone thinks this is good for hip-hop culture.
