A word used to describe the audio version of dog shit. Hip hop is to civilized ears what fresh dogshit is to bare feet. Insofar as contribution to our culture goes, that any homie with an IQ of slightly more than 45 (i.e. your advanced homie) can belt this shit out on the first try without any practice, training, or study whatsoever is a big hint. Another is the skill with which they affix their hats to their little BB-like heads.
When that ex-cop Caprice pulled up beside me in traffic with his hip hop dogshit turned up so high his trunk lid was buzzing, I decided not to go to a black lawyer or a black doctor just to be on the safe side, and I think I'll make it tougher for 'em to get into my university, not to mention neighborhood.

An alarming recent trend is seen in commercial music journalists, djs/vjs, etc. calling any music with a dj and mc "hip-hop." In doing this they obfuscate the distinction between rap and hip-hop. Rap is visceral; hip-hop is cerebral.

Rap has its own integrity, equal to that of hip-hop, as was shown in the old school (78 - 83) and Golden Age (84 - 93) years (all dates are approximations).

Rap is currently much more commercially successful and generally popular than hip-hop, and in its current expression has been watered down by the demands of commerce. (see: hip-pop). By contrast, hip-hop is undergoing a bit of a rennaisance, whose crystallisation was marked by the release of such albums Black Star by Mos Def and Talib Kweli in the late nineties.
Rap: Run DMC, Public Enemy, Eric B. and Rakim, Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick, Beastie Boys, N.W.A./Dr. Dre, LL Cool J, Grandmaster Flash, BDP, Big Daddy Kane, Jay-Z, Black Thought (The Roots' mc), EPMD, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Kid and Play, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Cash Money artists, Ludacris, Nelly, Black Eyed Peas (now?).

Hip-Hop: A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Digital Underground, MF Doom, Aesop Rock, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Del the Funky Homosapien, The Roots' musicians, Jurassic 5, 3rd Bass, Black Eyed Peas (then?), RJD2.

Some artists, such as Missy Elliot and Busta Rhymes, appear on first notice to be rappers, particularly because of their tendancy towards braggadoccio, etc., and thier somewhat accessible sound, but upon deeper examination prove to be hip-hop artists.

Similarly, The Neptunes, Timbaland, and Kanye West lay down what one might call hip-hop beats, but most often for rap artists.

Hip-hop is the center of global culture today. What jazz was in the first half of the 20th century and what rock and roll was 20 years ago. Hip-hop has taken over the world.
