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 -____-

An acronym for "retards attempting poetry".
Rap is a pathetic attempt at advertising Mcdonalds' "food".

Rap is a genre of music. Rockers always assume rap is about" doing your girl,killing people,drugs money". And I disagree. Like Mainstream rock that all the "rockers" hate, Mainstream rap is not very good. When they hear 20 seconds of Dem Franchize Boys or 50 cent they automatically assume "This "Crap" is garbage! they talk about killing and drugs! they have no talent what so ever!". This is not true. They are being Sterotypes and thinking all rap is like that. They have not heard stuff by Kanye West or Common or the underground rap. Rap does take Talent.To produce the beat,have rhythm,Rhyme,and keep flowing takes talent.
Rocker: I hate rap. It sucks
Me: Why?
Rocker:cause you dont need talent to rap. They dont sing, they just talk.
Me:Well, it does take talent.
Rocker: HAH. Yeah right. i bet you i can make better stuff then them.
Me: well, can you make a beat that you can rhyme to? can you make a rhyme and keep up with the beat?
Rocker: No.
Me: Thats what I thought.

rap is a type of music liked by teens today. It consists of beats and lyrics that rhyme

however, many people dont consider it real music. The people who listen to rap do not make fun of others who listen to rock, metal, country, etc...

so why is it people make fun of rap when you dont have to like it

if you dont like it dont listen to it. its not a big deal
I am a hustler homie
You are my customer homie
This is a line from a rap song

once was a genre of music which is very amusing to listen to, but right now its gone to shit. right now, the best definition for rap is "read a paper that says you are a rich gangster who has too many cars and hoes, auto tune your voice, and earn money! make sure you look like a gangster inyour song, because if you dont look like you're from the ghetto then you are lame. make sure the paper you are reading has you're group name in it". rap had really glorious days, but now thanks to young money and other lame artist, its now nothing but shit. great artists in this genre include eminem, biggie, 2pac, nas, ice cube, etc. lame ones include lil gayne, nicki garbaj, whack khalifa, prick ross, and other fake asses that wear skinny jeans wherever they go.
lil wayne fan: man rap aint shit without TUNECHI MUDA TRUCKA
old school fan: no, lil gayne is fake, talentless and makes no sense when he rhymes
lil wayne fan: FUCK Y'ALL HATERZZ

Ok.
First thing's first, I personally don't like rap all that much. I love rock. But, I know my music, and I know it well so listen up.
Rap is not a sorry excuse for music. People like 50 Cent, Young Jeezy, and just about everyone else you see on MTV give it a bad name.
But people like NOSS (might of spelled that wrong), Mos Def, Tech Nine and Tupac make secular rap good.
It's true, in most rap songs, there is a LOT of cussing, and a lot of talk about sex and drugs.
But there are also positives, like some talk abut eating healthy, doing your best, and so on. There's also Christian rap, which personally I think SUCKS.
Note: I am a Christian.
Sucky rap: I'll take you to the candy shop,
I'll let you lick the lollipop. (Wonder that means.)

Good rap: I strive to eat healthy,
My goal in life is not to be rich or weatlhy.
GOOD

Alright I said enough.
P.S. I'm not white

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.
