for the most a category of musicians that at one point in time were very talented(some still are), now though, rappers are spreading like the Ebola virus. it seems with just a spreadsheet of slang terms, some fubu, and criminal rap sheet, anyone can be a rapper.
"yo, ya her bout pookie? he got arrested for shooting someone outside the club then stealing thier car and running over a small child, while raping a handi-cap person"
"wow dawg dats ruff, what did he get...life in prison?"
"Of Cousre not...Russell simons stopped by bailed him out and cut him a record deal."
"wow fat B...but pookie can't rap"
"so...he got a criminal record man! he don't need to know how to rap...look at fitty"
