look up any word, like swag:

rap
Rap is a music genre.Its hated by many people that believe in the stereo type that only blacks make rap and its always about shooting cops, drugs, money and sex. Which leads to another stereo type that says all blacks like rap...
1.Not all blacks like rap.
2.Rap's not only for Blacks.
3.Not all rap is about money drugs and sex...
4.Not all people who like rap are black
People who don't like rap, usually say
"Rap is crap that has artists like 50 Cent."
These are people who know nothing about rap, and judge it by what they see on TV.
If you REALLY know what rap is then you'd know 50 Cent sucks balls and isn't a good rapper at all.See the people who like rap, and actually understand rap know 50 Cent is not a good rapper.Rap is poetry, despite what any other person says. Rap is like poetry with attitude,poetry with a bit of gangsterism. Look at Mos Def. That is a real rapper. Somebody like 50 Cent or Cassidy has nothing on somebody like Mos Def.
Most people say that rap degrades women. I don't really think so, because people need to realize..
A bitch is a bitch.
A hoe is a hoe.
A whore is a whore.
And a lady is a lady.
Rap has something called a beat to it, something that sounds catchy and something you can dance to.For instance Tupac's California Love is something you can dance to. And anybody that tries to say thats not a good song...well isnt there a rock song that goes "I've got 2 tickets to paradise, pack your bags we'll leave tonight."
Some people say rap is senseless and doesnt talk about anything.
Wake up people thats what music is.
The ability to say express yourself, and it just so happens rap expresses itself more than others.And anybody who doesn't like rap, thats fine, but dont talk shit about it when you don't even know about it.
I've said enough above...

rap
A form of "music" characterized by nonexistent harmony, simplistic and repetitive rhythms, and base lyrics. Rap is possibly the worst genre of music in the Western world, though country music is a strong contender. It pales in comparison to the many, vastly superior genres out there, such as jazz, to say nothing of classical.

rap
1) Retards Attempting Poetry
2) Meaningless shit that tends to have a reasonably good beat. Bad grammar mixed with bad spelling, with a dash of perversion
3) A seriously overrated style of writing, mostly used by black "ganstas." Occasionally white people attempt rap, but are flared at for being wiggers. Some, such as Eminem managed to make a good name for themselves through fart jokes. Ironically, Eminem wrote the occasional meaningful song.
1) At least Shakespeare made a damn good attempt, now they don't even try.
2) Rap used to be about big asses. Now it's about sex, the street, cars, and DENTALWEAR of all things. But it's still mostly about girls shaking their asses
3) Missy Elliot is a girl rapper, and she goes around bragging about how hot she is. She even wrote a song called I'm Really Hot. If that isn't sad, I don't know what is

OH YEAH!!! rappers are scared of cooties. notice how they always have sluts dancing around them but they neva touch them coz theyre hands are always in the air.

I agree that rap USED to be kool with MC Hammer and all the old rappers like that but now its just a contest of how many bitches they can get 2 shake their ass by the end of the video clip.

Rap
An excuse for being music by the retards that enjoy it, but be assured it's just a very simpled minded childish elementary schemed game, and game is the key word. (It's a fucking game is what I mean you fucking brainless retards.) Bored little poor kids made it, stupid people, and billions of dollars is how it got where it got today. The music is shit, but it's really the stupid fucking brainless people killing themselves to try to look coo whom insist that they like it is what actually pisses everyone off.
After having it in my face my whole life, and coming from right next to minutes away from the projects the music itself is the downfall of humanity, and what has come from it depresses me. For instants kids as young as 10 are selling drugs, as well as getting pregnant from trying to act coo, and mature.
Composure wise rap gamers (not at all artist) barely - to do not at all make their own beats. They sample some "beats" from a DJ's machine (it makes the beat), and decide which ones give them the best adrenaline flow to think the best. The rest is just smack talk.
As for the stupid fucking brainless people that like it, I relay this message to you - it's time to move on soldier. Hear me out. The only quality part of it is its beat, and just try to imagine there's music where the beat is just as good, and a lot better (being much more complex), but is only just 25% of the entire song's composure, but it's made by people's hands/feet(drums). Also hating rap has nothing to do with hating black people, it's about hating poverty, and those who thrive in its misery. After all the blues, and R&B (-modern day r&b) is all about black people, and ever music fan like them.
Rap gamer fans it's time to grow up. Techno is like white people's rap.

rap
A form of music which involves talking over a "ringtone" and requires a great talented musician to sing in it for it to sell eg/ Phil Collins, Elton John, The Doors etc. These musicians write and sing the basis of many famous rap songs and are often "ignored" because they think that the rapper did all the important stuff when all they did was "talk".

Rappers often rip off melodies from classic songs and claim it for their own. Eg/ Spandeau Ballet's "True", Martika's "toy soldier", etc. The main reason why they cant make up their own tunes is that they are talent less and they know that their work is shit so instead they used other people's work to make more money.

Many people claim that rap has “unique” beats and rhythms and requires talent to make these beats. For Goodness sake its just a drum machine doing some bass and snare loops. What’s so amazing about that? You want real beats, listen to those amazing drummers that could play on odd time signatures and makes the song better than it was.

Also, Many fans of rap thinks would try to defend their "music" by telling us to listen to old rappers like 2pac because he writes songs about important stuff, but doesn’t everyone do that? It’s nothing special. Many different artists from different genre of music also writes about important stuff except that they use INSTRUMENTS and they make their own amazing MELODIES and LYRICS. (that’s right people, there’s lyrics in other types of music as well. Much more clever and original than 2pac’s or other rappers for that matter. Remember that great lyrics (or even poems) don’t have to rhyme.) When 2pac writes about the problems of the world, Every one is like “Wow, he’s musically talented” but when really talented great black musicians like Stevie Wonder and Bob Marley writes about the problems of the world, no-one gives a damn.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a racist. I admire Black people. They have so much potential to do anything in this world, even being musicians . But I dislike how RAP music is destroying their image in this modern society. I don’t watch music shows anymore because of the filthy clips that these rappers produce. Rap and Rappers are a disgrace.
hey john, turn on the sample from that keyboard and lets rap!

rap
the lowest form of 'expression' through music
usually involves speaking slightly faster than ordinary people and in a retarded monotonous voice

can be performed by anyone, but usually by black people
the 'rapper' must dress like a gangsta
does not necessarily have to have good knowledge of the language being used, for example chinese rapper 'gin'

Usually includes references to all the niggers in the hood and sex or drugs and rap videos always include the rapper showing off with money that they dont have dancing with chicks who they will never get laid by, wearing copious amounts of bling

rap is now seen as an alternative to real music like rock and punk rock. The majority of listeners are americans who cant afford to go to a rock concert so listen to rap instead at home wid da homies
gangsta1: yo that rapper raps like yo mum
gangsta2: I no so talented innit homy
gangsta1: jus like everyone else who tries to rap

'g-unit are shite lets go listen to blink 182'

Rap
Rap is not music. It is people talking loudly to a repetative beat. Rappers usually have no talent, and that is not an opinion that is a fact.
consider this:
-Rappers usually buy beats from older rappers, or play them on cheesey keyboards.
-they do not play instruments
-they don't come up with a melody

so basically all they are are poets, poets with terrible taste in lyrics.

They are mostly sellouts, in that they advertise many products on tv, and endorse basketball teams. many of them also eat at shitty resteraunts like mcdonalds. they sing about who has the most hoes, or the better rhyming skillz or the most bling.

When rap was about the ghettos, it was much better. It was a way for poor intercity people to express their broken dreams and poverty/danger rittled life. now it's become about all the negative aspects, like money and hoes. they don't realize that money isn't everything,

and hoes are just in existance for straight people who cannot get layed.

The only good rappers (i can stand) are Snoop dogg and Kanye west.
Gangsta Rapper: YOZ I'm JAMMIN IN DA KLUBB WIT MA FITTY SIX HOEZ
AND MA PINK CATTILACK WIT THE CHROME AND DA DOEZ
AND I GO TO THE TEAT-R TO C A MOVIE SHOW
BUT I WOUND UP GETTING DOWN WIT MA BRAND NEW HOE

Chorus: drugs drugs, sex sex, bling bling, gunshot gunshot

so i shot my best friend
i shot my grand ma ma
I shot my uncle sven
and my daughter ba ba
and i blew up the world cauz it had no mo hoez
AND MA PINK CATTILACK IT HAD NO DOEZ

Normal person: dude chill there rap sucks
