Rap is not music. Music requires 3 things:
1) Use of musical instruments
Rap does not have Rhythm, only beat and most often does not use any musical instruments, rather, uses sounds composed on a synthesiser. Hence, rap is not music, it is a form of poetry.
Rap Fan: Dude Mos Def is such a tallented musician!
