The hip-hop culture is the same as the gangster culture. The gangster types run the hip hop labels and many or its stars act like gangsters. Not to mention most of the songs are about violence, raping women and killing cops. So yes its the same thing.

My husband and I both enjoy hip-hop music, but neither of us could be called "gangster types." Or even wannabe gangsters. My husband is in IT at an insurance company, and I do tech in a call center, trying to finish my degree to begin teaching. We have a 2k sq foot 2 story home in a nice neighborhood. We have 2 children. Neither of us does, or have done, any drugs, and we rarely (and by rarely I mean less than once a mo) drink. We are not promiscuous. Our Avalanche does not have spinners. We simply enjoy the music. Now my husband tends to like more of it than I do, for example he loves "Grills" and I think the song is just awful, both the beat and the topic. I don't listen to the songs about violence, raping women, or killing cops. I actually listen to a wide variety of music, except country and heavy metal. The odd thing is I was told in H.S. that I look like the type to listen to country. Confused Anyway, you can't stereotype people just b/c of what they listen to. That's like saying everyone who listens to country lives on a ranch and rides a horse to work, or are "wannabe" cowboys.
