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...

A music genre that is highly dis-respected because it is considered a genre that glorifies things that are wrong in the world. But, I have a message to people who believe that: Its only people like 50 Cent who administers impressions like that.

Its gangster rap you should be hating on, not the general rap... Like Kayne West, Common, and K-os, and many other artists who are disrespected just because its rap.
Why you all hating on rap?
Saying it ain't music, and calling it crap
It takes skills to bust out rhymes
and it all ain't about drugs, women, and crime
If you still have problems, then look up a Mr. Kanye West
Listen to a few of his tracks, and you'll agree he's the best
But don't hate if you have problems with MC's
All we're asking is to show them some love, please
Maybe 50 showed you rapping at its worst
Its people like him that making the rap game cursed
I only started liking rap about 2 months back
If you don't like my tastes, then don't give me any slack
Looking at the rhymes I'm busting at this very moment
It ain't anything gangsta, so don't give me any torment
No one said you had to share my idea of good music
But all this hate towards rap is making me lose it
I know some of you like your rock artists
But,don't go hatin on rappers, saying they retarded
Look at me, I'm rappin right now, and I ain't mental

I can be aggresive about this, but right now i'm being gentle
If any of yall want to hate, don't follow bad stereotypes
Look around, you'll see MC's come in all types
You see what I just did? I rapped completely opposite of how you all defined the rap game
I don't care what you say after I'm done, I'm still going
to show rap love, all the same.

A cacophany of terrible sounds pretending to be music. The opposite of rock.
Rap blows. I thought 50 cent was the price tag and I was still outraged.

A genre of music that is stereotyped way too much.
There is a HUGE DIFFERENCE between MTV Rap and true rap.
Crappy, artists like 50 cent, soulja boy, hurricane chris, D4L, Dem Franchize Boyz are all MTV rap artists. They have no real talent, their lyrics suck, and they have no vocal talent. Don't judge rap by these crappy acts, real rap takes skill and intelligence. True rap artists are, Rakim, Wu-tang Clan, Tupac, Gangstarr, Eminem, Chamillonaire, etc. They actually have lyrical talent, they are clever, and contribute to the hip-hop industry.
Rap can be broken down into sub-genres based on where it where it was created. Crunk,created in Atlanta, played through out the south. Chopped N' Screwed, originiated in Texas is when a DJ slows down a record and muxes it. Hip-Hop was born in NYC, Harlem, The Bronx, Brookyln, Queens, all have there fair share of rappers. Hip-Hop focuses more on the poetry aspect and is used to reflect live in an urban enviroment. Hyphy is from The Bay Area, Northern California. Oakland, Vallejo, San Jo, San Fran, Berkly, Richmond, etc. all part of the Bay. Hyphy is about going crazy and not caring what people think. Gangstar rap is from southern California, Los Angeles and Compton. It is more agressive and focuses on life in the hood. Chicago, Detroit, and other midwestern cities have contributed to rap as well. ******REMEMBER******** there are many many different types of rap, and MTV IS NOT RAP.
Rocker: Dude, I hate rap, they're just ghetto retards

Me: What type of rap you hate? And your probablly talking about Soulja Boy or Dem Franchize Boyz, have you ever listend to Rakim, Wu-tang Clan, or Tupac?

Rocker: There is more than one kind of rap? And who is Rakim?

Me: Exactly my point. You just focus on MTV mainstream rap, the same could be said for rock. There is more than one genre and MTV doesn't show you what true rock is, just like it doesn't show you what true rap is.

AKA Hip-Hop.

A type of music the is very popular in urban cities. There are many Rap genres such as Old School, Positive, Gangsta, Hardcore, Crunk, Southern, and Snap. Real rap is nothing like todays types(aiming at Gangsta) which talks about shooting peoples whips up, bragging about $200,000 cars & mansions ect. ect. Real rap artists would be LL Cool J, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Kanye West and a whole lot others.
You: Rap is for blacks, it's gay and talks about banging hoes all the time.

Me: Rap is not only for blacks and not all rap talks about banging hoes you stupid mother fucker.

Acronym that stands for "Random Ass People" or "Random ass Person." Term used to describe people who they have just recently met in person, or moreso online though chatroom.

People think it's crappy.

But their puny brains cannot figure out that it is not the genre of this music that is crappy, but acually the gay rappers that ruin the genre are.

50 cent is one example of a idiot who ruins rap.
