Whatever so called "rap" you hear on the radio that repeats its self 20 seconds each day. Something that little kids like but dont know what real rap is because they were born around 2002, and not born in the 90's like I was, but unfortunatley Im still growing up in this generation. But not everything on the radio is bad, just most of the Hip Pop I hear all the time.
Hip Pop Artists include:
Ja Rule (used to be a Hip Pop artist but hasnt made an album since 2004 because 50 cent ruined his career)
Kanye West (He used to be real until 808's and Heartbreak came out, started to use autotune, come on Kanye your too good for that piece of shit.)
(I cant say Akon or T-Pain because theyre R&B not Rap)
9 year old: Flo Rida is the truth (tries to act gangster)
Me: Look Flo Rida is what we call, Hip Pop, not real Hip Hop, like Nas said, Hip Hop is dead, and now is being replaced with Hip Pop. Hip Pop is like a mix of Pop and Rap. Listen to real Hip Hop like Immortal Technique, Eminem, Nas, 2Pac, Jay-Z, The Notorious B.I.G., Big Pun, KRS-One, Kanye West before he put out the 808's and Heartbreak album, Mos Def, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Eazy E, Dr. Dre, and E-40 (from the 90's).
9 year old: Ok I'll go try those out.
Lil Bow Wow
In other words half-assed "rappers" who claim that they are the shit when the only people that should be receiving credit for their music are the producers. Since they are the ones that create the beats, it doesn't really matter about the music. Any ass clown can get a bomb ass producer and rap about bullshit and make millions of dollars. A prime example is anything off Nelly's latest album or that milkshake song that is on the air right now.
Hip pop artist lyrics mostly include the following topics:
1. Sippin' Cristal Champagne
2. Rollin' in Escalades, Navigators, or other over-priced SUV's.
3. Talkin' about DUB rims or Spinners.
4. Lame ass choruses that includes 20 other rappers singing along from their mediocre label.
5. Talking about how hard the "gang" life was when they were raised in a suburb, not the hood (See Ja Rule).
Hip Pop is bullshit people, it's a marketing tactic that brainwashes the minds of the youth of America into thinking that these lame ass rappers do have good lyrics. If you want good lyrics go listen to the real hip hop:
KRS-One, Mos Def, Gangstarr, Rakim, and Common. Just to name a few.
Most of the so-called "rap" that you hear on the radio is hip pop. What you see on MTV, that's hip pop.
(n) (1) a popular type of rap music that features bubblegum beats and fake rappers sometimes singing alongside female singers such as J-Lo or Ashanti.
(2)hip-hop songs that reach the top 40, are incredibly overplayed, and are made by manufactured, fake rappers
Nelly, Ja Rule, Petey Pablo, NORE, and sometimes 50 Cent and Eminem produce crappy hip-pop
Every video and record you hear and see today. Real Hip HOP artists don't get their records played on the radio every 20 seconds. If an artist is rappin' about being a pimp, clothes, hoes and rims, he is HIP POP. Old school HIP HOP was about the knowledge. Knowledge apparently doesn't sell records anymore.
Every video and record you hear and see today. Hip HOP has been dead for a very long time. So has Rap.
Hip Pop Jay Z
HIP HOP Chuck D
the highjacking of a cultural movement to create fast cash by marketing and signing talentless artists who release music of this genre
If it plays in the background at McStarPizzaHutbucksKFC its hip pop
Everything you hear on KISS FM and WKTU in NYC.
Also refers to the fusion of R&B/soul music with pop music and rap beats; soulless R&B with pop music sensibilites and rap music beats.
i.e. Mariah Carey, Ashanti, Beyonce, Ciara, Usher, Mario
Ciara does not make R&B music, she does hip pop.
A word first mentioned by Binary Star as popular hip-hop music. Namely, Mtv rap songs such as anything produced by Puff Daddy since biggies demise, Ja Rule, 50cent, Eminem, etc...
50cent is a manufactured rapper, complete with his own clothing-line. He is the definition of hip-pop.
