One night last month two incidents--a music award and a killing--pointed up the relationship between artistry and violence that defines Death Row Records, the nation's hottest producer of "gangsta rap" music: The debut album of Snoop Doggy Dogg, Death Row's charismatic superstar, took top honors at the Soul Train Music Awards. A few hours after the show, a 28-year-old fan was fatally stomped at a party the company threw for its out-of-town retailers and promoters.

"Snoop time," grumbled the man standing in front of the hospital. Snoop time, indeed. Snoop Doggy Dogg time. The "gangsta" rapper extraordinaire, who is also an accused killer, was 45 minutes late and counting. His stated agenda at the Martin Luther King Jr./Drew Medical Center in Watts on Tuesday was to deliver Christmas presents to children in the pediatric ward. The presents had arrived long ago.

Sitting in a West Los Angeles recording studio, just around the corner from the police station where he was booked as an accomplice to murder, gangsta rapper Snoop Doggy Dogg has two important dates on his mind. On Nov. 23, Interscope Records will release the 22-year-old Long Beach native's debut solo album, "Doggy Style." Because of Snoop's co-starring role in fellow rapper Dr. Dre's recent smash album "The Chronic," Snoop's collection is expected to enter the national pop charts at No.

I was displeased with the March 7 Counterpunch by Eric Taylor, "Gangsta Rap Is Deferring the Dream." His outlook seems out of focus to the reality of rap music's message. While I do agree that gangsta rap is a negative message for our youth and women, saying that it's delaying the dream or setting it back has nothing to do with the lyrics. Taylor mentions that some great leaders have striven to make lives of African Americans and others more desirable and comfortable. But only allowing black conservatives that want to be accepted to jump on the bandwagon is to keep matters the way they are!

Kevin A. Ross' essay on "The Year of the Black Man" (Dec. 27) is so perverse that I had to read it twice to make sure he was serious.
