I agree with Sosa. Most rappers shouldn't educate their fans because that's not their job. Schools and parents are supposed to educate their kids. Black kids especially black men that don't like school, they need to go to the library to educate themselves because there's lots of books about black history and there's books about how to get a job and what job careers there are. Black men in the hood need to aspire to be more than a drug dealer, rapper, NBA player, NFL player. There's lots of jobs that pay good but unfortunately black men won't take the time to learn these job careers because ignorant black men think wearing a suit and tie is for white men. There's some hard labor jobs that pay good if you don't wanna wear a suit and tie.

It's not the limited subject matter that's the problem, I think it's because the subject matter is always some negative shit. Like drugs, murder, rape, kill this cop, kill that dude, or just plain ignorant shit.

You have rap groups like Blackalicious, Brother Ali or Atmosphere who talk about more positive things in their songs, I think it's important that there needs to be more positivity in its music rather than always the same dark subject matters
