Raps is a form of card game (most commonly combined with Poker or Blackjack) where the loser has to recieve a decided or random amount of hits on the knuckles from a deck of cards. Usually, the first to bleed wins.
Blackjack and Poker are the most common types, where the loser either picks a random card from the deck (and is administered that many blows) or is hit ("rapped") according to the factor of loss.
Let's play Poker for raps.
9 of Hearts. That's 9 raps.

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??
(poser): silence
(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.

The rap on (MTV) is truly PISS (and I have the same opinion about almost everything on MTV, so I'm not being '(racist)'. I am a '(hater)' but that's because I hate (mainstream) bullshit of every kind).
(50 Cent) - how the fuck did this bland loser get so popular. G-Unit my ass.

BUT, I know a few real, underground rappers, and these guys I DO respect a lot. They do it for the love, and it's genuine expression. It's *almost* poetry (no it ain't like conventional poetry at all people - rap doesn't translate well on paper, but neither do any music lyrics).

50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, etc are all shit
So's everything on MTV
But there's good rap out there, you just have to look deeper for it.

see also Hip-Hop

A genre of music spawned in the early 70's in various ghettos 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...

Music genre that is looked down upon nowadays. Right now thruthfully, the rap world is full of new artists that make one hit and now think they are good examples being Young Joc, Young Dro, & Dem Franchize Boyz. Nowadays most rap comes from the south and has no meaing to the genre like it used to. Today IT IS all about grills, cars, and hoes. But back in the day artists called it hip-hop which is a lifestyle that actually took skill to make. They actually sung about life in and out of the streets. Today there are some hip-hoppers like back in the day. Examples being Common, Talib Kweli, and Nas. Today rap is all commercial and rappers thinking they have skill when they are taking pop and r & b beats and rapping over them examples being 50 Cent, Ja Rule, and Nelly. I wish hip hop can take over again and not be underground which all real hip hop is now.
Yo you wanna check out this new 50 Cent rap CD I got!?
Response: Nah fuck 50 Cent, I would rather listen to some Wu-Tang Clan, or Nas. Real hip hop bitch!

True rap or "real" rap is not the junk you see flooding MTV/VH1/BET all the time. That kind of rap, or "corporate hip-hop" was originally conspired on by the rich white men that control all the major record labels in order to continue controlling violence and hate in the youth of each generation, especially black youth culture. Posers like 50 Cent, The Game, Ja Rule and others who could use their position to rap about anything other than black-on-black and gang violence instead squander their opportunities by creating beefs with other equally untalented poser wannabe artists and carrying guns wherever they go with eighty hangers-on they like to call their entourage. They strive to be "gangsta" but will always be just a bunch of punks with shiny guns who would never even think of settling disputes with their fists like real men, or heaven forbid, talking it out like adults. True rap and hip-hop comes from the soul, expressing feelings and emotions through the beat and heartfelt lyrics that don't encourage the youth of today to join a gang, arm themselves to the teeth, sell and consume as many narcotics as possible, become an alcoholic and abuse every woman you come across. Did Otis Redding ever threaten to do a drive-by on Marvin Gaye? When did Al Green shoot up a night club because Isaac Hayes happened to be there? Never. These jackasses on top of the charts these days only prove that the youth of today is slowly devolving before our very eyes.
MF Doom. Talib Klewell. Mos Def. Tupac. Wu-Tang.

If you want real rap, start there.

Rap is a genre of music, a poetic, realistic rhyme put to a beat.

It used to be a respectful, decent form of music, however, it has turned bad, into utter crap listened to by posers.

MODERN (CRAP) RAP:
50 Cent/G-Unit
Mike Jones
Lil Jon
Ying Yang Twins (tweedle-dee, tweedle-dum)
All other "Crunk" artists.

CLASSIC (REAL) RAP:
Dr. Dre
RAKIM
Jay-Z
NWA
Snoop Dogg

Rap has since turned into mindless idiots rapping about jewelry, money, prostitutes, wheels, & luxury SUVs.

Yes, old rap is the true definition of rap, not the crap you see on MTV everyday. Rap has promoted: bad treatment of women, selling drugs, wasting money on a Cadillac Escalade, and dropping out of school.

However, I have very little respect and DISLIKE Snoop Dogg very much, because he is a HORRIBLE example for teens everywhere, and (in my opinion) belongs in jail. His music is extremely negative and promotes gangs, crime, drugs, and everything else I mentioned above.

I have the most respect for Dr. Dre, because he's a smart, decent man, with creative ideas. He went somewhere with his life, and does a good job of depicting life for most poor minorities in the ghettos. His work is wonderful, and he deserves many awards.

Too bad this can't be said about most new rappers, although there are some good new rappers, such as: Lupe Fiasco and Eminem.

Rap sucks now..
Rap is good..
not anymore though.
