a lot of gangster rap began at the same time (Ice Cube, NWA), if not a few years earlier than groups like A Tribe Called Quest and Talib. Hip-hop/Rap has so many genres. You can't say 1 rap song makes all of rap bad, thats like saying hawthorne heights makes led zeppelin bad.

its sad to see ppl think gangster rap and hip hop are the same. listen to Talib Kwali, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and other conscious rappers/hip hop artists. hip hop was not originally about gang banging and treating women badly, that's a sub genre of it. ppl that usually hate rap think that`s all it is, but it is not. just like country music is not all domestic violence and alcoholism.
