    it's quite a grey area, i'd say, especially with tracks such as 21 questions and the "Best of Both Worlds" Jay-Z & R Kelly album, but i'd say hip hop and r&b were different styles...
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    the answer is simple. hip hop isn't a musical genre it is a way of life.

    it's really a matter of personal opinion more than anything else...

    there's no way to definitively whether r&b is a different style...

    i thought R&B is what used to be known as "soul."

    and Rock & Roll was originally called "R&B."

    i think hip-hop and R&B are two different things, but they've started using each other. R&B was getting boring so they added hip-hop parts to make it sound new and, well, more hip. and hip-hop has incorporated more rock, funk, and R&B in order to sound like "real" music (now it's all about producers & session players, instead of deejays scratching up disco/electro records).

    its not part of rap but there have always been collaborations between them,
    hip hop seems to be less strickly defined because it is not clear what is classed as hip hop its difficult to make a defintion between it and r&b. example floetry could be considered hip hop so could insane clown posse totally different but both hh.
