I am arguing for the fact that rap IS in fact music. You all are like, hey, rap isn't music, it's just some dude saying stuff over music that we can't understand about girls, sex and drugs! There is actual meaning behind the words of some rappers. They actually express how they feel in their rap music- it's their way of speaking out- talking their soul. Rap you'd hear now though is more just telling people to do drugs, and basically that they just do this for money. Actual rap though such like 2pac is real music. Also another reason why rap is REAL MUSIC is has a beat and a rhythm
That's a tricky one, rap is a form of poetry and the only way it can relate to being "music" is the fact it's both an auditorial artform - That being said, it's not, it's poetry. I could put a beat behind a kid riding a bike, doesn't make it music.
