What makes rap "Hip Hop"?

What makes rap "Hip Hop"?

Too often I question what defines rap as Hip Hop as it doesn't always align with what I see as being part of the culture. Certain artist always pursue a claim to fame but never seem to give back. When was the last time a major artist brought bgirls and bboys in a video? Why is graff rarely seen? DJ's not getting the same love? Or how about why doesn't rap try to embody all of the 5th element? Shouldn't some rap not be considered Hip Hop?

  • It also seems like too many artist use Hip Hop as an easy means to sell themselves, but don't care about the culture. Why claim to be something when you can just make your own avenue? A appropriate something that stands for more than just record sales when you make something brand new? Too many rappers that claim Hip Hop, but are anything but Hip Hop.

I have been in a relationship for 3 years, me and my partner live here in the England, we lived in two different cities which was only 2 hours away. she used to drive down to see me every week before for the past 2 years.i moved to the same city 4 months now, i thought it was a good thing that i would be more closer to her.she saw me in the first month of when i moved. then she never saw me in the next 3 months, she never bothered to make the effort.then she got a job in London about 2 months ago and she said she would see me but never did.these last 2months she has been avoiding my calls and since he moved he makes excuses saying she is ‘tired’ or ‘busy’ and that she was sleeping’. she always makes these excuses, I’ve been crying my eyes out, I’m lost, confused, heart broken. i feel like it’s all my fault and i don’t want to lose her, all she told me was that the relationship is over she blocked me on whatsapp and facebook. now i begged her to consider me but she’s did listen, she left and i was devastated, i began searching for help and answers, then i heard about a man that can cast a spell to remind her of all the things we have been through together, at first I was scared then i decided to give it a try, and like magic my girlfriend came back, apology and begging for forgiveness, thanks to this man, I’m posting this to help people with similar issues. you can contact him for help too. via mail..happylovespell2@gmail.com or his whatsapp number: +2348133873774
