1.crap "rappers"(eg. Ja Rule) who do dumb duets with laydees(eg. Ashanti) and create absolute crap(eg. Mesmorise)
Daym that man was dancin hip pop last night
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.
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.
Music rappers call "hip hop" when it sounds like pop music (intoxicating beats to lyircs nobody actually listens to)
This can mean a beat that sounds like Britney Spears or a pussy/money song with a nice beat but doesn't use more than 50 different words.
Some Hip Pop artists are:
Yin Yang Twins
Foxx and Webbie
Hip Pop Fan: Did you hear that new Yin Yang Twins song, 'Drop'? It's so mothafuckin raw!
Hip Hop Fan: Yeah, the beat sounded just like 'FeedBack', by world-famous pop music star Janet Jackson, who's been making pop music for the past 2 decades, so I turned it off. What's it about, anyway?
Hip Pop Fan:.......
