Final Major Project

Young people in Britain are known for being negatively stereotyped due to gang related culture that takes place. The media use many reasons to put the blame on something, one of which is music. Popular music plays an important part in a young persons life, but through the different types of genres some are blamed as a bad influence on them. However, focusing more on the youths themselves it can be argued that they use music as a source of escapism, to free them from reality and to have something to turn to. Music can be seen as a way of life for youths in Britain as they discover many ways of incorporating it into their own personal journeys. Music is me.
