It's a culture, it's a state of mind, it's a language, it's fashion, it's a style, it's something you feel every moment of your day. Hip hop is not commercial shit, hip hop is deep, it has a meaning for each person. You don't just listen to hip hop music, you feel it, you respect it, understand it, share it.
hip hop and rap are not the same thing
when two or more emcees are making the other ones look bad in the eyes of the audience using rymes which they make up at the moment of the battle. vulgar words are used, so is irony, and any kind of insult.
