commercial rap is any form of rap that is made strictly to profit from, hence the tag commercial

fat joe's career is probably a good example

50 cent is a good example.
underground to commercial
'guess who's back' to 'the massacre'

One must realize there are two types of MCz:

Artists and Businessmen (example? Andre Benjamin vs Jay-Z)

one must never be confused with the other.

Commercial is basically anything that appeals to wide ranges of people.

from websters:

-viewed with regard to profit
-being of an average or inferior quality <commercial oxalic acid> <show-quality versus commercial cattle>
-producing artistic work of low standards for quick market success

Anything on radio these days. A long time radio would actually play Tribe, then maybe Too Short followed by Wu. They actually would break new artists & records. And the music would vary exposing the listener to a lot of different hiphop.
