Listen to the music.

It may not be your choice of music, but listen to your kid's music anyway. Don't say you "hate" it outright. Try to understand what they like about it. At the same time, listen to the lyrics. An analysis of popular music found that drugs were mentioned in 63% of rap songs versus about 10% of lyrics in other categories such as rock, country and pop. In song lyrics that mentioned illicit drugs, marijuana was by far the most frequent of the illicit drugs mentioned (63%).
