    I think the platinum jewlery, the iced out teeth, and the baggy overpriced cheap ass clothes make rap. But soul is what makes hip hop.

    are they still calling it rap?
    why not just call it pop,
    and stop acting like it's special.

    'Rap' doesn't mean rhymes, though rhymes are also raps and mc's are rappers... in it's purest sense it means MC's and a band, where the dj, if there is one, is more of another instrument, as opposed to being the sole basis of rhythm and music in the band... with the advent of looping break beats, the dj became more and more the foundation of the music and this led to 'Hip-Hop'... now flash forward to all the kids that didn't even listen to rap or hip hop in the 80's and now it seems like 'Rap' is hip-hop that you don't like, and 'Hip-Hop' is reserved for hip hop that you like, and the underground...

    haha ill bill. non-phixion- probably one of the worst rap groups ever. more than half the crowd would leave the show when they came on. and this was consistent in their home town.
