Rapping about what you know is that a bad thing?

Some rappers rap about drugs, money and women like Jay Z and some rappers rap about political and social ills like Nas. For instance if Jay done a record like Distant Relatives he would get clowned from his main fanbase. If Em made a record about running a corner selling dope would be laughable especially knowing the artist background. My question why is it a bad thing always rapping about what you know or dabbled in your lifetime?

    it depends on what you know drake raps about being a simp/trick and people clown him for it even though he openly admitted that as a child he was very emotional (being real with hisself) but gucci raps about selling dope fucking bitchs&killing niggas (also being real with hisself) yet he gets praised for it smh its a total double standard in music basically if your not acting like your the hardest man alive or your in touch with your feelings your not a real man&get bashed for it

    Depends on what they're rapping about.

    If a child rapist started rapping about their rape experiences....well yeah, don't think i need to go any further.

    Just as many people have a problem with rape, there are also a lot of people who have a problem with drug dealing/thug life.

    If they don't make an attempt after 2 or so albums, then yeah, its a bad thing that you don't make an attempt to improve.

    ding ding ding ding ding and let's not act like Nas has always been conscious he just transformed over the years to be able to touch on ignorant shit and some conscious shit.

    We do need to back off Jay though. he's the only rapper that really gets killed for what a large majority of the rap game does I mean nobody says anything about Raekwon and Ghostface making the same album over and over and over again.
