Although Plies is a very successful rapper and is very appreciated in the hip-hop industry, parents do not seem to share the opinions of music moguls. Plies sings about money, women and violence and, naturally, parents are not very pleased to see their children listening to his music. Fingers were already pointed at Plies when several artists deemed the violence of his songs. However, the rapper says he simply writes facts from his own life and has nothing to hide. He maintains his point that his songs are realistic and show life as it is, without making it sweeter. As in every issues, there are voices pro and against Plies, but most parents do all they can to prevent their children listening to this type of music. Moreover, the music is not the only problem they see in Plies, but also the fact that he is careless about the fact of being a dropout, sending a wrong message to the young generation.
Plies promotes his personal lifestyle and even if he does not force anyone to do anything, he is still a bad example, according to parents. He gave up school, he sings about money, women, guns and violence and seems pretty proud of him, fact that disturbs the parents. They are angry mostly because many radio stations play his music, practically giving a tacit consent that tells kids that listening this music and then applying those heard in songs is OK.
Plies may be an awarded artist and a talented rapper, but this does not make him a role model for children, consider the parents. Plies defends himself, because he does not make music for the children and he is not the one responsible with their education. Plies only does his job, but the parenting should be made by those who do not want their children to listen to his music. The most important education is the one received home and in that, Plies has no interference. He cannot stop anyone to listen to his music and according to his statements, he does not consider himself guilty for how people react to his lyrics.
