look up any word, like trill:
1. (Noun) A person who rhymes usually to a beat and using urban slang
***Regaurdless of the Stereotype, a rapper can be of any race. Latino, White and of Course black. Black people were the pioneers and continue today to be the most successful rappers- however that does not mean a black man should be selfish and keep anybody from being involved in an art that they discovered. Eminem is a lyrical Genius and one of very few talented white Rhymers. Sen Dog (from cypress hill) is a wonderful example of a skilled latino rapper. Swifty McVay is an amazing rapper of the many in BLack ones who are.***
Wow that rapper can rhyme any word he is given

An emcee. Someone who writes poetry and speaks it to a rhythm. Underrated artform, a way of self expression through creative lyricism. Assosiacted uncorrectly with overuse of swear words and talking about drugs and bitches: this only applies to a minority of rappers. They are not talentless, singing is easier than rapping, I should know, I do both.
That guy is a rapper.

evolved from being a hype man for famous djs in the 70s. hype men used to kick small simple rhymes to get the crowd wild, and, after awhile turned to full songs.

rappers are divided into many categories and subcategories, but the 2 dominant ones are simple. mainstream (popular and on major label with endless airplay and) and underground (not signed to a major label,no airply, and possibly holding down other job than rapper).
man...piggy banks, tony mayo, 5 cent piece and dumb fuck are talentless mainstream rappers. lets listen to a real rapper by the name of Krs-one.

A person, male or female, who express their hard lives, an oppression in a poetical, musical form. A Rapper is usually a very talented person, who puts a lot of time an work into their "thug poetry". A rapper often unfortunately has a poor background. The term "rapper" evolved from the black culture and began in the late 70's. Much gratitude to Herbie Hancock.
A professional Rapper has a lot of talent
