Why is Ghetto good?

I've been watching m.t.v. all morning, and all i've seen are a bunch of rappers. They keep talking about the hood, and the ghetto, but my question is this: how many rappers of today are actually from the "ghetto"? I would say less than 25%. Hell, i'd say less than 10%. These damn middle class rappers are the thing that is ruining hip-hop. The thing is, I don't listen to rap. But growing up, I lived in the worst neighborhood in Denver. I know what it was like, and so I ask this: why do rappers need to be from a bad neighborhood to be a good rapper? Respect? Material? I don't know. But I feel insulted that these guys can just rap a few lines about the projects, and suddenly they're cool. And if they care so damn much about the ghetto, why don't they give back to it, like Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube?

Re: Why is Ghetto good?

I think being proud about being ghetto is a sign of mental retardation. I live in the ghetto but I am NOT ghetto. I don't have multiple baby mamas, I graduated high school, I have a steady job, and I don't have a criminal record

Yeah, street cred gets someone over.

You really think 50 Cent would be as big as he is without his whole bulletproof vest/ I got shot 9 times gimmick he has going on?

They reason why they are proud of this is because they've become rich despite the circumstances.

they got rich because they can rhyme about how many times they were shot at

Not all of them rap about getting shot at. And they still have become rich, despite not completing high school and other circumstances.

No, he wouldn't be as big. I just can't believe that all of these rap fans buy half this b.s. They have to know that the majority of these guys are putting on act. You can be poor and not be ghetto. There is a difference. And like Alabaster Holt said, you can live in the ghetto and not BE ghetto.
