A type song that is neither a hard-core rap song, nor just a pop song but contains elements from both. Usually used by an no-name artist trying to get their name out by having a big-name artist feature in a song. It could also be used by a big-name artist who is trying to get their protoge or a new artist on their label into the mainstream.
Joe: Hey did you hear about that new B.o.B song? Its really good.

Steve: Yeah I like how he's rapping but that girl from Paramore is singing too.

Joe: Yeah I know it's so Hip-Pop.

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.

Nelly, Ja Rule, Petey Pablo, NORE, and sometimes 50 Cent and Eminem produce crappy hip-pop

the highjacking of a cultural movement to create fast cash by marketing and signing talentless artists who release music of this genre

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.

A word first mentioned by Binary Star as popular hip-hop music. Namely, Mtv rap songs such as anything produced by Puff Daddy since biggies demise, Ja Rule, 50cent, Eminem, etc...
50cent is a manufactured rapper, complete with his own clothing-line. He is the definition of hip-pop.
