Rap/Hip Hop Music

Hip hop music, also referred to as rap music, is a music genre and cultural revolution typically consisting of a rhythmic vocal style called rap which is accompanied with backing beats. The term rap is often used synonymously with hip hop music.

Rap/Hip Hop Music Artist


The most controversial rappers to ever grace the genre. Using his biting wit and incredible skills to vent on everything from his unhappy childhood, to his bad relationship with his mom, his contempt for the mainstream media, his success became the biggest crossover success. The controversy over his lyrics was the best publicity any musician could afford, and being the first 'white' rapper to make a significant impact ever on Hip Hop may have given him a platform not afforded t
o equally talented African-American rappers.
