Anybody care?

I'm still trying to decipher the difference between rap and hip hop!

There are hip hop/rap songs I like very few.

In the 1970s,1980s,and 1990s the music was semi decent. I think around 2003 when rap/hip hop was about how big your house was, how many ladies and/cars you have that's when music in general and rap/hip hop went down the sh*tter!

I think it started going (even farther) down the cRapper around 1990-91 when 2 Live Crew gained fame and notoriety for Nasty As We Wanna Be and groups like NWA with their gang affiliations started becoming popular.

Whenever its "heyday" may have been, Rap-Hop still sucked.



Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

You'd have had to kill Debbie Harry, too...



...as she had a bit to do with popularizing it in the late 70's when it was still mostly a Brooklyn thing.

Some black guy at work tried explaining it to me.  I didn't get it.  I said maybe I'd have to be black to get it...just like you'd probably have to be white to get the difference between punk and metal and grunge rock.

I've always liked this one.

Theme from the Sean Penn and Robert Duvall movie Colors...



They play part of it near the beginning of the movie but the full version like in this video, is only at the end.

This song plays during the closing credits of one of the Scary Movie series.

Today's Doodle was a fake DJ setup. Damned idiots (at Google).

As I understand it, "rap" is the "music" style (and I have arguments about it being "music"), and "hip-hop" is the clothing and lifestyle. They go together, but are not interchangeable. I think.

My definition between the two

Rap. Talking about how much bling bling you have, spending $500 for bottle service at the Club, your fancy $1,000 Armani Suit, your $500,000 Bentley.

Hip hop. Talking about growing up in the hood and scrapping hard just to survive.

I have.  It makes little sense.  Supposedly, "rap" is the music while "hip-hop" is a broader, more cultural term.  But when it comes to hip-hop music versus rap music, no real answer.

As it comes up in Google...

"One common understanding is that hip-hop is a culture and rapping is one of four elements contained therein—the others being breakdancing, DJing and graffiti. Today, with the other elements not appearing as prominently as they once did, it's been easy to conflate the two."

I get it.

Hip hop is a broader term and the umbrella that the four elements exist under. That being so, you can call rap "hip hop" music and still be basically correct.

Why do I now feel dumber just for knowing that???

If I said that to the black guy at work I mentioned, he'd tell me that Google is run by whites, so whatever Google comes up with, is wrong.  LOL
