"I love the way I am and can't nobody out here change me" --> KRS-One
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!
HIP HOP is MY LIFE!!!
WHAT'S GOING ON?
yea hiphop is just life.....it's how we live it....i could say it's the 4 elements but it's so much more then that...i couldn't possibly break it down into a few sentences for you...it's something you eather live or you don't.
difficult to explain,
i just love it,i wake up with it and i go to sleep with it.
spend a lot of money on it,theres always a hip hop song on my mind
if i have to do something i really dont like,i listen to some hip hop to motivate me.
hip hop is what I live

You're a player but only because you be playin yourself
write essays yourself... hiphop is the kind of music i listen to the most (but that doesn't say i listen to hiphop only!)
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:
these things deal with what you do. then there's:
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.
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...
"The Devil is not the Prince of Matter; the Devil is the arrogance of the spirit, faith without smile, truth that is never seized by doubt. The Devil is grim because he knows where he is going, and, in moving, he always returns whence he came."
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
its like no other music, well the real hip-hop, a lot calling itself hip-hop fuckin aint.
