Hip-Hop is a genre of music that used to be good, and now sucks the sweat off a dead man's ballsack, and whose song lyrics are entirely comprised of the words: Booty, Butt, Ho, Slut, Biiatch, Trick, Pimp, Player-hater, muthafucka, and the N word. Often times, rappers, once dirt poor, are now filthy rich, so they decide to sing about how much bling they have and how many women they have had sex with. All rappers--regardless of ethnicity or social backgroung all talk, walk, sing, and grab their nuts exactly alike.
An example of a hip-hop song:

Now dis is a message fo' all mah hos-
You better got booty and you better got blo-
That's just somethin dat choo muthafuckas gotta know-
Oh and another thing, cuz I'm black go figger
Just so you know this ain't Eminem I'm gonna say the word "nigger!"

A music rich in base with a lyracist rapping over the beat. Started in ghetto's where kids could just afford a record player to loop a beat and rap over. Started rap(rythmic american poetry) which is now disrespected because of its pop and MTV play.
Hip- Hop has an accidental spawn known as hi- pop which is when faggy rappers like ja- rule sell out totally. Jay- Z has done this, but used to be good.
Hip- Hop is the only remaining black/african rooted music. Lets not let white people steal this one like they did Jazz.

Is in trouble.

Save Hip-hop. Not Hip-Pop.
Hip-hop is NOT dead. It is Hip-Pop (i.e. P-fucking-Diddy) that is ruining hip-hop. Maybe NaS was exposed to the mainstream rap industry too long and felt that he needed to make an album titled "Hip-Hop is Dead". The best is underground and concious(i.e. Boot Camp Clik, 9th Wonder, RZA, Hieroglyphics, The Roots). Not D4L, Mike Jones, Lil' Wayne (some one kill him) or any of these embarrassments!
