Okay so for example...



'Ghetto Qu'ran' by 50 Cent which was leaked in early 2000, a track I consider to be one of his best. The song is primarily about drug dealers and gangsters from the 1980s in his neighborhood of South Jamaica, Queens. Although 50 describes how he looked up to these men, it still gave exposure to their activity. It's rumoured that this song is the reason 50 Cent was shot nine times and almost killed in 2000. It is also rumored that the track, and the following music industry blacklisting of 50 Cent by Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff and his associates, led to the murder of Run DMC's Jam Master Jay, who defied the blacklisting by taking the young 50 Cent under his wing, introducing him to the music industry. According to an affidavit by IRS agent Francis Mace, law enforcement officials believed that the shooting in 2000 was in retaliation for the lyrics of the song.

^ A knock-on effect is when something happens as result of something else although it doesn't nessecarily have to be a direct effect. So 50 Cent's track was ultimately the reason why he was shot and Jam Master Jay killed.
