    I know for sure someone will come up with a better answer, im tired.

    Hip hop focuses more on the beat and tune and is generally more upbeat and "cool"

    Rap, I believe is more about the lyrics and is more mean\powerfull.

    id say hip-hop is more poetry
    rap is more hooks and beats
    thats why i prefer more rap cause i like big beats

    IMO,hip hop is the main genre name its sort of the whole sound,beats,samples,scratching and all.

    Rap,on the other hand, is the lyrics and way it is performed.

    Hip-Hop is the collective name for the scene which consists of Breaking, Graffiti, Deejaying, Clothes and RAPPING. I can't really say it any better than that. How can you be into Rap and not be into Deejaying?? That's 2 down, only 3 to go and then we've got you!! I posted this in another thread yesterday and thought it would be relevant.

    To me RAP and HIP-HOP are not mutually exclusive.

    Nas, Jay-Z, Tupac, Biggie were called RAPPERS not HIP-HOP-ers because they RAPPED they didn't HIP-HOP. They are all part of the HIP-HOP culture/scene, as are Shelltoe Adidas, Kangol Hats, Bally's, Windmills, Headspins, Burners, Whole-Cars, Scratching, Vinyl, Etc.

    Shut the feck up fool...what do you know.

    If you dont like rap/hip hop then dont reply in a thread with it in.

    Start up a radiohead thread and lets all have a laugh

    Just stick to listening to that whineing muppet Thom Yorke or whatever his name is

    Hip-Hop is a CULTURE!
    Rap is a MUSIC!

    Hip Hop, as a culture, has got 5 elements : rapping, dj-ing, graffity, breakdance, and human beatbox!

    that's my way to see those things! I think that idea came originally from
    KRS-One.

    BTW : why tdid the MTV but separate awards for hip-hop and rap.....are they really that ignorant......

    So come, come now, get pissed on, shitted on
    Tough talk turns to, "Can't we all just get along"
