Pit bull culture examines the relationship between rural, white dogfighting and urban, hip-hop.

A woman from the United Kennel Club notes:

"It's important to understand that this isn't about race, but it is about culture."
Russell Simmons says, regarding the presence of pit bulls in hip-hop and rap culture:
"That's why we have poets, have always had poets and artists in society, to say things that sometimes people don't say otherwise."
In this case, I think it's a bit of the "poets" reflecting society and society trying to emulate said "poets" the same time.
