A type of music that used to be worth listening to. Back in the late '70's and early '80's when rap first started, it would have some meaning to it. One of the all time greats is KRS-One For everyone who likes old school rap, definitely listen to "Hold." it's a great song that doesn't have anything to do with slapping bitches and getting his money. -__- rap nowadays sucks. Everyone shouldn't listen to new rap, they should listen to the older stuff. Please.
"Hold" by KRS- One is rap. NOT "Buy You a Drank" by T-Pain. That's just CRAP -____-

to me, rap is a way of expressing one's self. so is rock. and i guess country is too (even though i personally dislike it). rap can talk about a certain life style, but it's not all about a thug's life. country expresses their loss of their dog, a pickup truck, or a woman with twang. another way to express themselves. and rock, which also takes another approach. if you are a rock OR rap lover, you will know that Jay-z (considered a grand daddy of rap) and linkin park ( a great rock group) made multiple remixes of their songs TOGETHER!! i think that you cant just say you hate rap or rock because they have different things to talk about. you'll never hear a group like green day talk about shootin up the block with their 9mm hangin out the caddy window. nore will you hear a rapper like paul wall talk about loosing their girlfriend that they loved. its just not the way they are, its different life styles.
there are blacks that sing with the gorillaz, and then there is eminem, bubba sparxx, and paul wall... which are main stream white rappers. its not about color, but about diversity and life styles.

The act of talking over a beat. The beat is usually around the same tempo as a rock song and is almost always computer generated, rarely is it spun from vinyl at a concert and even rarer is it produced by an actual percussion instrument. Rap started out as a form of lyrial poetry emphasizing the daily struggles of of life in the American urban society. Rap in the last 15 years, unfortunately, has broken down into a musical genre that has taken it's already limited creativity potential and dropped to an all time low level of ingenuity and creativity in its popular form. For example, Sean "Puffy" Combs and his partner in mediocracy "Mace" proved in the 90's that it is possible to make a success in Rap music without even being able to get past the 1st round of a local Rapping competition. A sad example of where Rap music is today is that many Rap Producers of this generation, such as Timbaland and others, produce music for a "Gangsta" Rapper on month and then Produce the same style of beats for Britney Spears the next month. Popular Rap however is not the only genre at fault. Rap, Rock and Pop music are all plagued with the dominance of Record Companies and the force feeding of music to the public as documented in the recent proven instances of Record Companies paying money to large radio station DJ's to play certain artists' records more than others and sometimes even saturating the listening audience with the same song over and over again which when they are drunk at the club suddenly comes on and everybody goes, "Hey I know this song!" And suddenly the beat and delivery that you knew was shit the first 5 times you heard it on the radio, suddenly relates to you because your drunk and it's familiar.
Puff Daddy sold a million records and even admitted he was a terrible rapper, which he was, further embarrassing the genre and lowering its credibility as a form of music.

NO ONE seems to have noticed that rap stands for Rhythm and Poetry like R'n'B stands for rhythm and blues like 'the who' not that crap that they abuse the termanology with nowadays. the main reason i dont like rap is they do what everyone else does but in a more blatant way and thats STEAL MUSIC/IDEAS but they steal whole songs/melodies. and 90% of posters seem to dislike it so i will stand up for it and say yeh i dont really like most of it but to say ne think is 100% shit is just narrow minded and stupid. i and yes i do like some rap (immortal tehnique) but the main reason is that i am a drummer and a musician and in rap they use alot of samples and mutilate the organic sounds , yah this is just evoloution of music but personally I think its treading on your roots a bit. so thats why i like hip hopbecause it is based in a lot more funky way and is less repetitive so nice one to the boys from j5 jurassic 5 and if you think rap is all negative check out de la soul and you all know three is the magic number and lets face it who doesnt like that song, so there you do like some rap.

take it easy and dont be sleasy and check out the oxford dictionary too.
a rap-"so if you dont respect yourself dont expect respect from any one else". Immortal technique (big headed tw@ but some nice rhymes)

Poetry - sometimes - and often confused or misnamed as music which it is clearly NOT. SOME music contains rap lyrics. Gansta Rap, which is an attempt at offering machismo, fails to entertain the educated masses as they are aware that such garbage is only useful in making the misnomered "entertainer" clearly one of the GREATEST assholes that ever walked, flew over, swam on, or inhaled oxygen - or any life sustaining substance - from, ANY PLANET in the universe.
Generally, a waste of electrons.
Max: "What the fuck is that monkey doing swinging from that tree in the parking lot...and shooting that cop!!!And what is that pecular jibberish coming from his mouth?!"
Scott: "That's not a monkey dude, that's a gangsta rapper thinking he is entertaining us with his version of rap lyrics.
