"It's diminishing rap a bit to say it 'holds a strong influence on African-Americans' - Kanye, Kendrick, Death Grips, Danny Brown etc are huge with the Pitchfork crowd these days."
I think it's very obvious what I meant. Sure, the Pitchfork crowd enjoys their music, but rap doesn't become their overriding passion in life, and very very few white kids grow up aspiring to be rappers. For black people, that might be different, but I'm not an expert on the matter.
Otherwise I agree with the rest of your post.
