Why do kid look up to rappers instead of a person like this who been through what most rapper hasn't?

I have nothing against rap or anything but I was reading a guy story earlier about life and his calling minus the flash, andjewelryy and it seem to me that kids only care about their image and are being brainwashed by today society, while this guy is a first hand person who can reach out to them Ok here story goes like this.He's the youngest and last full blooded member of his closes family outside of his immediately family. He is a double cousin with his older cousin who lives ended up like this.It a total of 7 kids 6 boys and 1 girl: both parents are living as well Son 1: dies in a fire as a adult Son 2: is kill by a childhood friend as a adult Son 3: Is accidentally kill by his own brother(Son 5) in a fight as adults Son 4: Is sentence to California State Pen as a adult Son 5: accidently kill his older brother and turns in to a drug addict as a dult Son 6: is falsely accuse of r**e and spend 15 yrs in prison. as adult Girl: dies as a 3 year old lil girl form a illness. At the youngest he feel it's his job to spread the word of the lives his cousin lives and their down fall.he becomes a motivator and uses his confidence and wit to reach out to inner city youth across the country regarding his cousins lives and down fall and use it a a positive to reach out to kids who may be at crossroad in life So my question is why do kids look up to rappers who basically raps about anything that is written for them and look past a young man who have experience this first hand in his family that is trying to make a impact to young kids and teens to live a better and cautious lifestyle. So my question is: Why can't more kids look up to a guy like this instead of some of this negative rappers that is out today?
