The Greatest music known to earth.
Hip-Hop: By One of the many Great MC's

Yo once again it's the Big L, that kid who got much props
from killin corrupt cops, with motherfuckin buck shots
So don't step to this, cause I got a live crew
You might be kinda big but they make coffins yo' size too
I was taught wise, I'm known to extort guys
This ain't Cali, it's Harlem nigga we do walkbys
No one can match me, tax me or wax me
If you want me to write you some raps G just ask me
Cause on the shelf is where your LP cold stood
Because it was no good, that shit ain't even go wood
I'm not the type to take sluts out, I just fuck they guts out
Get my nuts out, then break the fuck out
Me being a virgin, that's idiotic
Cause if Big L got the AIDS every cutie in the city got it
Once a nigga tried to stick me for six G's
and I put more holes in his ass than swiss cheese

a dope ass type of music also can be called rap, but sadly it has changed dramatically to these fake niggas talking about bling and how much money they make a year after tupac died rap has gone down the gutter.rappers used to have a point to make like tupac, public enemy etc etc but now wehn u got these fake niggas like fucking 50 cent its a disgrace
nas brought us back to realization that hip-hop is dead so u better believe it!

There are 4 original elements of hip hop. bboying, mcing (rapping), djing, and graffiti art.
Despite what the media and a lot of people think, bboying is the only form of dance in hip hop, then popping and locking were adopted elements to it. So if theres no popping, locking, or breaking, then its not hip hop. Britney Spears is not hip hop, thats what i would call street jazz. As far as music goes if there is rapping or djing then it is considered hip hop. And graffiti art is the use of spray cans and markers to design words and characters of your own and are usually done illigally on walls and buildings.
