Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine violence in contemporary rap music and to address if the violence is gender specific. Utilizing the Billboard Top Ten Rap Singles from 1997-2007 this study analyzed 100 songs using content analysis. Findings indicate that male violence against other males is the most common theme throughout the sample. In addition, the use of misogynistic terms was present throughout the sample as well.
