Rap is a music delivered vocally that incorporates rhythmic speech and street talk in a flow that’s performed in a variety of ways. It’s like spoken-word poetry over an instrumental track. Rap spawned in urban areas developed primarily as a black expression although there are some great white rappers. Rap is the primary basis of hip-hop music and is a some parts speech, poetry, prose and singing. The concept of rap comes from the notion of repartee predating the musical form. In the 1960’s to rap meant to talk. Now the term is interchangeable with hip- hop though hip – hop tends to be more melodic and danceable rather than socio-political commentary.
The Sugarhill Gang's 1979 song Rapper's Delight is considered to be the first hip hop record to gain widespread popularity in the mainstream. Rappers 2Pac, Biggie Smalls, LL Cool J and the Beastie Boys were some early giants that paved the way for today’s stars like Jay-Z, Eminem, Drake, Chance The Rapper, Lil Wayne, Lil Uzi Vert and The Weeknd
