What is Rap?

Edited By Alan M.

Rap is the poetry of the 21st century. Just like “traditional” poetry, rap tells a meaningful story whether vague or straightforward. Both of lyrics or words connect with their selected audiences on different levels. Yes, in rap there might be raunchy words, but they are just as important as the eloquent expressions crafted by Shakespeare. Everything eventually changes or evolves, like the English language. Poetry might have started out with Shakespeare mutated into Frost, but it has now evolved into Drake and Eminem.
