Ever since the Rap Viet show and other rap contest TV shows became famous, it looks like more and more Vietnamese people are now getting into rap music. My YouTube feed is now like 70% rap and 30% pop/ballad. What do you guys think about this transformation in the industry? Is it a good thing for Vietnam?
I think it will turn many Vietnamese girls to tattoos, twerking and dressing more like thots with purple and green dreadlocks. I don't like it. The crime rate will rise in Vietnam because of this as they share their story of getting rich by robbing people, selling drugs or being a pimp. It's ok to feature a clean rap artist in your pop song but please leave the gangsta rap alone. It has no place in Vietnam.
