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!

A music style that formed in the 80's out of reggae influence. It was forming a little bit after the rap style was formed. It borrowed the spoken type of lyrics and it had trumpet and very upbeat and stimulating rhythms.

Hip-hop is different from rap because rap is very poetic but it has a beat to keep a steady flow, (a beat as in drums or anything that makes a short sound) It (was) started/influnced with/by the James Brown song "The Big Comeback"

Hip-hop got mixed up with rap when Run-D.M.C. came in, they created songs that were a mix of both styles, such as "King of Rock", it had poetic lyrics, drums and guitar which had savory rhythm. Run-D.M.C. were very good with poetry and they used Hip-hop melodies and rap beats mixed in their songs.

Modern Hip-hop is called rap but it isn't very poetic, it is almost like 80's Hip-hop but the reggae influence has been replaced with synth, the modern "rappers" are actually Hip-hop artists but the average person calls them rappers because it is shorter than "Hip-hop artist". Out of the laziness of people to say 2 words instead of one; Hip-hop and rap have been mixed up.

Rap is dead these days and the last rappers were Run-D.M.C. and maybe Tupac.

I do not like modern Hip-hop cause the artists try to make catchy, rhyming lyrics but because they don't have poetic minds they have to slur and mispronounce words to make them rhyme. Example: the song "Throw some D's" you hear the word "caddilick" a lot. I listen to the song just to laugh at it, I am even laughing as I write this.

Hip-hop was a great upbeat style but it is now all about image, the best of modern Hip-hop is ok to me but I really liked the early Hip-hop.
A lot of modern Hip-hop sucks!

African American music with a hidden racial/political agenda.

hip hop today have generally 2 sides:

The first sings about girls, love and 'mama' accompanied with a soft & smooth beat to indicate the tenderness within the African American community.

The second is a more rough and jumpy tune with violence/hyper-sexual themed music video that shows the manliness and powerfulness of the blacks.
What's eminem doing in that hip hop video?
