And it is that from the era of the great philosophers already in Athens and Sparta there were small struggles to obtain absolute control over what the citizens heard. And this echo in particular not only occurred in this culture, but this process has also been repetitive even to this day.

Aristotle posed “music directly imitates the passions or states of the soul”. It is there when people are inclined to listen to a certain musical genre because that type of music identifies some of the experiences that are happening at a certain time.

The same is a musical genre that had its beginnings in the 70s. This genre is a mixture of other styles among this reggae in Spanish and also hip hop.

With the passage of time, the lyrics of this new musical genre were being modified. At the same time the appearance of the media. It should be noted that the TV was transformed into an instrument for the implementation of specific values ​​and behavior in adolescents who feel to a large extent totally identified with the lyrics and stories that are narrated through the songs of this musical genre.
