The Astonishing Success of Gangsterism

“Being” and “Telling” Narratives in the Compton Based Gangster Rap Unlike their late 70s and early 80s colleagues, who rapped about "knowledge, wisdom, and understanding as well as peace, unity, and having fun" (Johnson 1); the late 80s and 1990s rappers sung about the streets and the realities of living in a ghetto, as well as the hardships many African-Americans faced in a country where they felt they had no opportunities.
