One of the most popular songs in 1986 was "Higher Love" - one of the most popular songs in 1987 was "Push It" (with the line "this dance isn't for everybody - only the sexy people"). Hip hop is a spigot of pure evil, a cancer that has eaten away at American society and morals for twenty years. ... Nothing good has ever or will ever come from it.
First, the line "the dance isn't for everybody - only the sexy people" is originally from a song by "The Time" which I am sure you also see as evil due to their explicit sexuality (they were associated with Prince before he became his more outwardly Christian self.)
Second I think those artists who have fed and clothed themselves and their families, those kids who have finally found a music that speaks to their experience would dispute your claim that nothing good has ever or will ever come from "hip-hop." You, like many seem to conflate hip-hop with "gansta" rap and various other similar forms. Educate yourself before you judge.
There is incredibly poetic and intelligent hip hop (and rap) out there.
