    Need Some Clarification


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    Most people seem to make the assumption that Rap and Hip Hop are the same music genre. But after hearing some people arguing that the two aren't the same I started wondering which of them was correct, Much as initially I thought there was a slight difference between the two, to be honest, I couldn't distinguish the two.

    I'll pose this question to y'all rap/hiphop fans: Is there any difference between hip hop and rap? Or are the two the same?

    Rap and Hip Hop are the same thing. It could be said Rap is the actual song style and Hip Hop is the lifestyle that rappers live but when referring to music it is the same thing.

    I think rap is just a sub genre of hip hop. From what I understand, hip hop probably also encompasses such genres like RnB, although I could be wrong.

    There's not a major difference. You could say that rap is closer to gangster rap than hip-hop is, and you could say that hip-hop is the style that keeps things real. Seriously though, nine out of 10 people could care less if you use both words to describe the same type of music.

    One could argue Hip-Hop tends to be more poetic than Rap but for the most part they're one and the same. I wouldn't bat an eye if someone use the terms interchangably.

    It is the same thing in my opinion. I haven't heard any reasonable explanations that say different, so I keep believing there's no difference.

    I think its a fine line between tha 2....i personally think there a lil tiny bit different when i think HIPHOP i think of tha roots,tha elements bboying breaking krs1 shiit like dat. When i think RAP i invision nwa fuck tha police shiit tha game low riders etc. Lol but if u dont think they r different than ask yaself this,cuz i remember thurr just being one genre for our type of music n they called it HIPHOP... my question to u is when did RAP get involved than if its tha same thing?

    I'm pretty sure hip-hop is the main genre and rap falls under that umbrella, but I was never much of a fan of dividing music by genres especially nowadays with so many mashups and crossovers, it becomes particularly difficult.

    Muahahahaha! You're hilarious. I like that though. It is very clever.

    I think that there is a difference, but there is so much overlap between the two that people now use both terms interchangeably. All genres of music evolve and I think that arguing over semantics is pointless and maybe even counterproductive.
