Whatever so called "rap" you hear on the radio that repeats its self 20 seconds each day. Something that little kids like but dont know what real rap is because they were born around 2002, and not born in the 90's like I was, but unfortunatley Im still growing up in this generation. But not everything on the radio is bad, just most of the Hip Pop I hear all the time.
Hip Pop Artists include:
Ja Rule (used to be a Hip Pop artist but hasnt made an album since 2004 because 50 cent ruined his career)
Kanye West (He used to be real until 808's and Heartbreak came out, started to use autotune, come on Kanye your too good for that piece of shit.)
(I cant say Akon or T-Pain because theyre R&B not Rap)
9 year old: Flo Rida is the truth (tries to act gangster)
Me: Look Flo Rida is what we call, Hip Pop, not real Hip Hop, like Nas said, Hip Hop is dead, and now is being replaced with Hip Pop. Hip Pop is like a mix of Pop and Rap. Listen to real Hip Hop like Immortal Technique, Eminem, Nas, 2Pac, Jay-Z, The Notorious B.I.G., Big Pun, KRS-One, Kanye West before he put out the 808's and Heartbreak album, Mos Def, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Eazy E, Dr. Dre, and E-40 (from the 90's).
9 year old: Ok I'll go try those out.
Contrary to popular belief (above) pop music is not short for Lollypop music but Popular music. Pop Music = Popular Music, basically rendering a lot of "alternative music" IE Nirvana, to be Pop, and a lot of rock music like the beatles (or nirvana) to not only be rock music, but also pop music. Sorry people.
"pop" is deemed to mean more than popular to record copanies, they see it as an actual type of music, a particular sound. A money-making sound. Don't confuse yourself thinking you dont like "pop" music though.
"I am Britney Spears, I sell records, I am a pop artist*"
(*please note if she referred to herself as an artist in my presence i would donkey punch her)
"Hi Im Jake Teblaauznikov, I am an overweight 30 year old Russian man. I make music inspired by Britney Spears, basically exactly the same to her music, but noones heard of me and noone buys my record, I am not a pop artist"
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.
Popular music. A collective genre, also referred to as Pop, Chart Music, Top 40, or Hits, it primarily focuses on wide circulation, sales and the marketability of the "artists" than on creative or artistic content. Pop can range from Dance, R&B, Rap, Country and Rock, but is generally the most "diluted" form of any genre it emulates. Pop songs generally have a 3-minute, hook/verse structure (although many ballads have made it to the charts) written for immediate likability, often written by corporate record label executives, and "pushed" by a front-person or people, commonly referred to as the artist or artists.
When initially identifying a pop artist, mass production and circulation are the biggest indicators. Check mainstream media/entertainment outlets, such as MTV, VH1, E!, Rolling Stone magazine, or the "New Releases" or "Heavy Rotation" section of the local music store.

Street Pop is an art movement. It’s happening right now.
A common movement, with artwork for everyone. Toys, print runs, editions. A movement born of enjoyment. If you make it fun, you make a ton. Bright colors! Gray tones! Glow-in-the-Dark! Whatever you want! The rich and the poor are both the lucky: this movement is one from the street: graffiti is the love. Graffiti is a bad word only to those lost in the old tradition. Paint for everyone, paint for the enjoyment! For that, enjoyment, you can live your life! All things included! Lifestyles designed and available by people who want the world fun and wild!
Street Pop has love for those that love Street Pop. Street Pop
Pop Hop is a word used to describe a song or artist that is trying to pass itself off as Hip Hop but that doesn't have any sort of message or intellagence to it. Any song or artist that rather than improving or furthering the Hip Hop culture serves to tarnish it or take the movement back two steps in its progress. Phrase was coined by Sarah F. in Seattle Washington in 2005.
Laffy Taffy is Pop Hop song.
Master P doesn't do Hip Hop, he is a Pop Hop artist.
