    If I tried to put it into words I would already do damage. I have to move and manifest myself into the world for HipHop to be in effect...its barely seen with the physical eye

    but if you want essays I would suggest hittin up the temple of HipHop!

    here's my take on it. im not typing no essay cuz im too lazy for that.

    what does it mean to define something? to determine the beginning of something and its end.

    hiphop's begins but does not end with:

    MCing
    DJing
    Break dancing
    Graffiti

    these things deal with what you do. then there's:

    slang
    fashion
    demeanor(splng?)(the way you walk, facial expressions, how you have sex)

    these deal with who you are, your personality.

    you can take these elements anywhere and hiphop will be present. if you're not dealing with these elements then its not hiphop.

    for example

    is elton john's "circle of life" a hiphop song? what about berry white's "cant get enough of you love baby", or whitney houston's "exhale"?

    if not then that means that there are rules to what hiphop is and isnt but i dont think we ever sit down and talk about what those rules are.
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world Godís invisible qualitiesóhis eternal power and divine natureóhave been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    My definition: Hip-Hop is the reason why people don't understand me... Cause I don't regard bubblegum shitty r'n'b as true hip-hop...

    Hip Hop is as elemental as Earth, Wind and Fire
    an essential necessity in keeping a rhythmatic heart inspired
    an inexplicable drive that keeps the soul alive
    uniting many under one culture on the strength of itís Vibe
    itís when beat, rhythm and rhyme become the culmination of one
    the recognition of unisex soldiers moving to the beat of itís drum
    itís the roots of a true lyricist whoís message becomes itís tree
    yielding seeds of creative expressionism that are personified by the streets
    itís the invisible magnetic force that became love at first sound
    what political figureheads prayed would be lost, until their suburbs found
    itís the essence of what trapped Rakim between the lines
    bridging the gap, like the Pharaoh Nas, of would be distant minds
    itís the shared DNA between a Poet and an Emcee
    the drive behind the involuntary head nodding of a true listenee (listener)
    it's the very air that I breath setting a caged spirit free
    the significance of something as simplistic as mic check one, two, three



    Peace




    I sew...
    beautiful seeds that sprout flowers thatís deeply rooted
    your weak style-diluted with concepts thatís so polluted
    my words flourish, creating jewels the conscious will cherish ...

    thats cos they think hip-hop is mtv.

    if all people knew what real hip-hop was and dident see most of the shit u see today it would be respected a whole lot more.
