An example of real Hip Hop. Guru on the mic with the sick rhymes and lyrics. Premier with the tight cuts and true beats. As real as they can get, unlike all that 50 Cent, Ja Rule, Puffy, Nelly,all that Down South Garbage, and mainstream Hip Pop.
Check out any Gang Starr album, Step In The Arena, Daily Operation, Full Clip, The Ownerz. They would never come out with something wack.

INt3nSe is a word derived from the hip/hop music culture, by the artist known as 'LiL Jon'. Lil Jon was going to use the word 'INt3nSe' as his 'every-song' word, but was unable to, as soon as his 'smoking incident' occurred. Lil Jon got high from smoking too much marijuana, he became deaf and stupid, leaving him with the repeated words of wonder : "WHAT", the agreeable word : "OKAY", and the thrilled word of: "YEEAAH". Other rappers stole his word INt3nSe , and are starting to use it in current songs, the word meaning "The best, most intellectual pimp" , and "Holder of tremendous cock".
few songs that dubbed over the word "INt3nSe" :
"Rolling down the street, im INt3nSe , sippin on Gin and Juice" - Snoop Dogg
"Drop it like its INt3nSe"-Snoop Dogg
"My niggaz dont dance, we just get all INt3nSe , and , we do the roc-away, lean back" - Fat Joe
"If you roll up in the club, and them niggaz get INt3nSe, and you step up to the face, what they gon do?" - LiL Jon

Watch as the room rocksmore...
Mixed media slang
Banging in your boom box verbal violence
In a time when rock hip hop rhymes are childish
You can't tempt me with rhymes that are empty
Rapping to a beat doesn't make you an emcee
With your lack of skill and facility
You're killing me
And a DJ in the group just for credibility
I heard that some of you are getting help with your rhymes
You're not an emcee if someone else writes your lines
And rapping over rock doesn't make you a pioneer
Cause rock and hip hop have collaborated for years
But now they're getting randomly mixed and matched up
All after a fast buck and all the tracks suck
So how does it stack up? None of it's real
You want to be an emcee you've got to study the skill
Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Bring it to you every time like this?
Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Step, step up, step, step up
So you pick up a pen and write yourself a new identity
But mentally you don't have the hip hop energy
With a tendency to make up stories
Sounding like the only hip hop you've heard is top 40
And your record company is completely missing it
All the kids are dissing it for not being legitimate
So in a battle you can't hack it
React with whack sh*t
And get smacked with verbal back flips
Get your arse kicked by fabulous battle catalysts
It's taken decades for emcees to establish this
You're new to hip hop and welcome if your serious
But not on the mic
also known as b-boying, the main aspect of the dance element of hip-hop, ahead of popping, locking, crumping etc. A dance created by afro-americans that evolved from popping and locking, which involves style, smoothness, strength and self-control. There are 2 aspects, style which is dependant on your own personal dancing style, consisting of toprock, footwork,, the way you transition moves and of course random disses towards opponents during battle. Power consists of the moves the public wants to see, spinning on heads, windmills, hopping around on one arm such as the hand hop or jackhammer etc. Current pioneers and present time legends include Kujo from the USA and B-boy Junior from France.
*starts off with a toprock which is immensely lame, goes for a sweep but makes a poor landing, reaks out into basic footwork including 6 and 4 step, before attempting a swipe on falling on ass* WOOO! I'M GOOD! OK, maybe I need some practice, dammit....
