First of all, hip-hop is more than the 'four elements'. If our culture is limited to writing illegible crap on walks, and yelling into a microphone, then it's not that great of a culture at all.
Hip Hop is the way we talk, the way we act, our fashion, our lifestyle, and our people. It's the culture of the streets,
Secondly, hip hop is NOT a music genre. Like my man said below me, rap is something you do, hip hop is something you live. Rap is just a part of hip hop, and frankly it's the part that is pretty much selling-out and shitting on it as well.

Greenville is a city located in Greenville County, South Carolina. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 56,002. It is the county seat of Greenville County6.
For its size, Greenville has an atypically large number of activities. The Peace Center in downtown Greenville hosts national broadway shows that usually only come to cities several times larger. There are four independent theatres which put on several theatrical presentations a year.
Greenville is not a "college town" per se, but the students of both Furman University (in Greenville) and nearby Clemson University enjoy Greenville's downtown area for weekend entertainment. The streets of downtown are filled with people every weekend visiting the restauraunts, small shops, and bars.
Not to be confused with Greenville, NC, which is nothing but a college town filled with hicks.

High energy music criticized by hip-hop nerds who’ve never been to a club in their lives. They say it’s ‘ignorant’ and ‘taking black people back’, but I don’t see why having fun and partying makes you ‘ignorant’. It is also said to be ‘fake hiphop’ and that the ‘lyrics suck’, because it’s just club music. But hip-hop STARTED on club music. Plus, who the hell sits around analyzing lyrics in the club? NOBODY. If you’re listening to crunk on your TV, then you’re a fool.
And NO Lil' Jon didn't invent crunk..sweet god..
'We tend to get this general vicinity and all surrounding areas indubitably crunk!!' - Lil' Jon
