A legitimate genre of music that a lot of racist and/or ignorant people pass over because of the 10 songs they hear on bus while they're way to their Middle School or on the radio on their way to they're job. Generally because they hear these few artists on the Radio they generalize it with the entire genre because they think its all the same even though they completely forgot the millions of legitimate acts out there that actually rap about real issues and real stuff, not materialistic things or the cornerstone to every rap sucks argument (They only rap about Drugs, Girls, and Guns).
Guy 1: Hey Dude! Did you hear Fallout Boy's new single?
Guy 2: Uhh no, I don't really like them.
Guy 1: What? Don't tell me you listen to rap! That stuff SUCKS!
Guy 2: Actually yes, even though I like some rock. And where in the hell did you get that generalized peice of bull-Wait, don't tell me...The internet?
Guy 1: Yeah! They told me its all about Money, Hoes and Guns!
Guy 2: ........You realize that you should 1. Never trust 4Chan, and 2. Listen to a wide array of artists before you judge a genre. Like take songs like B.I.B.L.E. (GZA song), its about learning and the meaning of life and why we're here. If I Ruled The World (Nas) is another song about how Nas would change things if he was blessed with the opportunity to rule the world.
Guy 1: Ha, what would Nas do, change the world so all it plays on the radio is synthetic beats? Thats another thing, they have no talent so they can't play instruments.
Guy 2: No....he said things like
"Lifestyle cruising blue behind my waters
No welfare supporters more conscious of the way we raise our daughters"
And what about the beats? If you hate the beats why not listen to live rap songs (Can't Knock The Hustle for one) or generally any album by The Roots. Can't say they're not talented, they're a whole band but instead of a singer they have a Rapper.
Guy 1: Ok....they sound decent, but all rap is CRAP. The internet and the microchip implanted in my brain told me so.
Guy 2: How does a bad joke prove anything? Just because Rap and the word crap share 3 letters doesn't mean it is crap.
Guy 1: But they're right! It takes no talent, just a bunch of niggers talking shouting every profane word imaginable!
Guy 2: OK, freestyle for me. I want to see you be as good as Biggie, Pac, Nas, Jay-Z, Common, and every other rapper combined in a matter of seconds. Oh and don't forget, if LL can make an album without a single curse that means you can too right? Cause you're obviously more talented.
Guy 1: Uhh Yo yo yo, watch me flow, I'm at the club rocking rings and getting bitches
Guy 2: That was horrible, like worse than Soulja Boy. Wait hold on....doesn't that make you even less talented than a bunch of Niggers talking?
Guy 1: Shut the fuck up, its not music because me and some white supremesists longing for the 1820's say so!
Guy 2: OK. Me and a thousand people say rock is trash and isn't music. Does that make me right? If me and a million people said Gravity doesn't exist, would that make me right? No. You're an idiot.
Guy 1: ..............
Rap is a music genre.Its hated by many people that believe in the stereo type that only blacks make rap and its always about shooting cops, drugs, money and sex. Which leads to another stereo type that says all blacks like rap...
1.Not all blacks like rap.
2.Rap's not only for Blacks.
3.Not all rap is about money drugs and sex...
4.Not all people who like rap are black
People who don't like rap, usually say
"Rap is crap that has artists like 50 Cent."
These are people who know nothing about rap, and judge it by what they see on TV.
If you REALLY know what rap is then you'd know 50 Cent sucks balls and isn't a good rapper at all.See the people who like rap, and actually understand rap know 50 Cent is not a good rapper.Rap is poetry, despite what any other person says. Rap is like poetry with attitude,poetry with a bit of gangsterism. Look at Mos Def. That is a real rapper. Somebody like 50 Cent or Cassidy has nothing on somebody like Mos Def.
Most people say that rap degrades women. I don't really think so, because people need to realize..
A bitch is a bitch.
A hoe is a hoe.
A whore is a whore.
And a lady is a lady.
Rap has something called a beat to it, something that sounds catchy and something you can dance to.For instance Tupac's California Love is something you can dance to. And anybody that tries to say thats not a good song...well isnt there a rock song that goes "I've got 2 tickets to paradise, pack your bags we'll leave tonight."
Some people say rap...
I will say this first. I listen to punk rock and not rap. the rap i have seen was on mtv or vh1 and therefore cannot judge it. However, those of you who are judging it need to listen to at least 5 minutes of 6 differnt rap artists before you can say anything about it. if you still hate it after doing this then shut up, keep your thoughts to yourself, and be tolerant. just like in punk rock most of the stuff that is played on mtv and vh1 is PROBABLY media garbage. the music that is underground probably has more meaning to it. for those of you that say rap is only about having sex with women, and shooting people than you you haven't heard other good rap songs(eminem's mockingbird and many others). So before you judge anything look into it not just the what you see from its cover.
a punk rocker, a rap fan and a poser are at a concert. rap rapper is opening for a punk band.
(poser): what the hell is this??!!
(rap fan): hey its called rap, you got a problem with it??
(poser): all rap is garbage. it has no meaning to it. so why dont you go and listen to your half a dollar and get raped.
(punk rocker): dude have you even listened to rap??
(punk rocker): no i didn't think so, and if you think that you look cool by making fun of rap and pretending to be punk, then you should know that you only look stupid.
75% of the word "crap"
Retarded people listen to rap cause they stupid.
A form of music in which a person swiftly rhymes poetry, over a beat. A subgenre of pop music
. Rap is mostly influenced by hip-hop
or hip hop
. And this is to all the people who can't stand rap because they've never actually heard real rap:
There is no rule that talent is needed to make a song. Though talent IS needed to make rap, all of you racists just listen to a little bit of gangsta rap (i.e. G-Unit, N.W.A.) and assume that rap is all about gats, hoes, money, pimps, and gangstas! Ok you people are abosutely correct! Well....partially correct, you are correct when you say that rap is just about all about gats, hoes, money, pimps, and gangstas. *NEWS FLASH* That is NOT rap! That is GANGSTA RAP! There is a difference. If you go and listen to a rapper that was never born and raised in the urban streets, never been a gangsta, then you won't hear all that shit! Try Kanye West! Or Eminem! Even 2Pac! Though 2Pac called himself a "G", he wrote poems about love, he read books, he wasn't stupid! In high school he was an excellent actor; he was a thespian. 2Pac showed lots of love in his songs, and he WAS a gangsta. And he is the most influencial emcee in hip-hop history. Think of that. I don't really care how much the fuck you want to diss rap, as much as you classical rock people want to! Rap is music, and no one gives a fuck about what all of you people sa...

A genre of music
spawned in the early 70's in various ghetto
s throughout the U.S. The name allegedly derived from people saying "That's a rap!" after performing with a DJ
. A rap can usually consist of ryhmes and a beat, although sometimes done acapella
. Often accused of being about nothing but sex and drugs (not dissimilar to metal
), usually depicts daily life in the black ghettos or other assorted issues faced by the poorest of us.
Some Rap artists include: Eminem, 50 Cent, Run DMC, Mac Dre, Brotha Lynch Hung, Grandmaster Flash, etc...
contrary to most of the shit posted here, i have supplied the ACTUAL
Rapping is one of the elements of hip hop as well as the distinguishing feature of most hip hop music. It is a form of rhyming lyrics delivered rhythmically over a musical backdrop of sampling, scratching and mixing by DJs. Originally, rapping was called MCing and accompanied DJing.
Rapping (as a self-conscious artistic school) began as a variation on the toasting found in reggae, funk and dub music, mixed with influences from jazz-related performance poetry (Langston Hughes's album Weary Blues being an important example; the Beats also notable), radio DJ patter, and the tradition of playing the dozens. Among other predecessors were talking blues records and the work of artists such as James Brown and Parliament. The original rappers probably can be said to have been The Last Poets and Gil Scott-Heron with their recordings in the latter 1960s and earliest 1970s (such as Scott-Heron's famous "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" and "Whitey on The Moon"), but, slightly later, MCs (from "Master of Ceremonies") would improvise rhymes over the beats created by dancehall and club DJs. Early raps were frequently merely a sequence of boasts, or attempts to upstage the other MCs. See roots of hip hop music for earlier forms that also contributed to rapping.

Shittiest excuse for "music" ever created. Nobody knows why people even listen to it. Played at "parties," especially at parties thrown by some of my older cousins because they think they're "cool".
Rap? More like... CUH-rap!
