I think music inspires people and most of the time younger people try to be just like their favorite MC, actor, artist,etc. For example, fashion in the U.S. Alot of time you see kids who listen to rock, dressed just like the rockers in the music videos, same with hiphop, pop, disco,etc. So I do think that if a musician is doing something negative, he/she will inspire their fans to do the same. I love hiphop, but I also blame hiphop for turning my generation into a bunch of misogynists. So at the end of the day, if someone listens to "the heist" by Big L, and actually goes out and pulls a heist and kills 4 people, just like in the song, it is still the listeners responsibility for their own actions. And most of all if they're under age, it is their guardians responsibility to moniter what they are listening to.
