    What is the difference between hip hop and rap? I mean seriously. I've looked up some reference, but none seem to make any sense.

    I think hip-hop is a little more fluid than rap. Over the last few years I've been really getting into some hip-hop acts and just find it to be more fun, energized and smooth than any rap song I've ever heard.

    Hip Hop set out with a purpose, with meaning.

    Rap is just doped out gangsters talking about booty, bling, and themselves.

    lol....
    Hip Hop is NOT a music Genre
    Hip Hop is a culture with 4 elements combined
    its Bboying, Graffiti, Dj, Mc's ( commonly known as rappers )
    Rap isn't a different music than hip hop, Rap IS hip hop's music , rap is a part of the thing called hip hop, they're not 2 different things
    its a shame though that nowadays people are killing the scene by talking about clubs n hoes n stuff, not the way true rapping used to be.
    this was one of the main reasons " The Game " wanted to leave the scene, he said that its so destroyed its not the way things used to be and he did not want to be a part of this thing that is destroying the scene, but then he made a dynamic comeback with his new album staying TRUE to the real essence of what real rapping is about.

    All he did was steal from Wikipedia. I know because I just read the article.

    Way to go, thief.

    Yeah, he's certainly returning to the "true" roots of rap, eh? Even white kids will tell you that hip hop was a style born out of oppression. It wasn't some glorification of materialism and sexism like it is today. Rap today is about the B's:

    Benjamins
    Bitches
    Bling
    Balls (meaning both sports and testicles)
    Blow
    Booze

    That's all. It's a shallow song style and one that hasn't returned to its roots for a long time.

    There's nothing about rap that HAS to be about drugs and sex etc. Although 95% of it is... :rolleyes:
