A form of music in which a person swiftly rhymes poetry, over a beat. A subgenre of pop music
. Rap is mostly influenced by hip-hop
or hip hop
. And this is to all the people who can't stand rap because they've never actually heard real rap:
There is no rule that talent is needed to make a song. Though talent IS needed to make rap, all of you racists just listen to a little bit of gangsta rap (i.e. G-Unit, N.W.A.) and assume that rap is all about gats, hoes, money, pimps, and gangstas! Ok you people are abosutely correct! Well....partially correct, you are correct when you say that rap is just about all about gats, hoes, money, pimps, and gangstas. *NEWS FLASH* That is NOT rap! That is GANGSTA RAP! There is a difference. If you go and listen to a rapper that was never born and raised in the urban streets, never been a gangsta, then you won't hear all that shit! Try Kanye West! Or Eminem! Even 2Pac! Though 2Pac called himself a "G", he wrote poems about love, he read books, he wasn't stupid! In high school he was an excellent actor; he was a thespian. 2Pac showed lots of love in his songs, and he WAS a gangsta. And he is the most influencial emcee in hip-hop history. Think of that. I don't really care how much the fuck you want to diss rap, as much as you classical rock people want to! Rap is music, and no one gives a fuck about what all of you people say, because your opinion cannot change what already is! And for all you people who think rappers are talentless, FUCK YOU! Try thinking about it. They first need to make a fucking beat. They have to make like 20 different beats, and then choose which one fits the flow of the song. Then the rapper has to sit down for a long ass time, and think as hard as they can, and put his thoughts down on paper as a rhyming poem. Then once the rapper has made his lyrics, he has to find that best beat for the flow of the song. Then he goes and raps out the lyrics. He is basically talking very quickly, nonstop (nonstop rapping is the correct, "real" way of rapping, which means he has to rap without stoping for about 3-5 lines), in the rhythm of the beat. Also while rapping, he needs to stress every other syllable, but he can't go too fast or else he will go faster than the beat and then the song will be ruined. Listen to any rap song by a really talented rapper. Every line will stop on the end of the beat. So once all this has been done, the song if recorded and fine-tuned. And this has to be done for every song, on every album...And no it's NOT easy. AND YOU ASSHOLES SAY THAT RAPPERS JUST TALK, AND THEY HAVE NO TALENT AT ALL. BITCHES. SO IF U DONT LIKE GANGSTA RAP, THEN DON'T LISTEN TO IT SO YOU DONT HAVE TO GO AND WHINE ABOUT HOW MUCH IT "SUCKS"! THAT MUSIC IS MOSTLY TARGETING THE GANGSTA AFRICAN AMERICAN AUDIENCES, BECAUSE THATS WHAT THEY LIVE WITH. YOU GET IT? GANGSTA RAPPERS RAP ABOUT THAT FOR THE GANGSTAS! GOD! UNDERSTAND?! ITS SOOOOO SIMPLE, DON'T LISTEN TO GANGSTA RAP IF IT BOTHERS YOU!
I dont know what the fuck is up with these cocky caucasians thaty makes them think that they are the best race in the world and that just because they don't like gangsta rap, they go and whine about how much rap sucks. And the worst part is, they say rap sucks, not gangsta rap
. I hate these stupid fucks who add tons of stereotypes to their defintions. 50 Cent is not a rapper. 50 Cent is a gangsta rapper. Kanye West is NOT a gangsta rapper. He is a rapper. Eminem has the background of a gangsta; he fucking grew up in Detroit. But he raps about shit that acutally matters in this world. Plus to all haters, you guys don't see us hating on rock and metal 24/7. So fuck off.
