    RAP - I belive stands for "Rhythmic American Poetry" (not sure)
    and is what MC's do over Crazy, Ill, Unreal, Carnage-Like, Head-Bangin', Dope, Savage ect... beats, this equals Hip-Hop.

    So yes, clearly it is.

    Hip Hop ain't poetry. Hip Hop is just ... Hip Hop. Poetry is just another form of art

    i voted yes initially but i'm changing it to no. the MC/rap portion of hiphop is poetry but the other elements arent. so you couldnt say hip-hop as a whole is poetry.
    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 God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    rap isn't poetry to a beat, poetry is more expressive and visualy creative, hell most rappers can't tell the difference between a similie and a metaphor

    why do people think because 2 lines rhyme that it's poetry?

    this poll is also shit, you talkin like you want a serious argument then i stroll up and see those idiotic answers, fmd

    but poetry is also incorporated into rap, but it's incorporated into other forms of music, rap isnt poetry but poetry is in rap

    Bushido is realised in the presence of death.
    This means choosing death whenever there is a choice between life and death.
    There is no other reasoning.

    thats where its at, rap that makes no sense and is just words put together that rhyme isnt poetry, MC's that rap about things in society and talk about and issue is poetry and these options suck

    if a song in hip hop has words in it and its dope then yes its poetry fuck all the cream bullshit u be talkin about it all comes down to whats said! 2pac for ex talked about how cops are being hella fucked up in usa and no beat or bus cream shit etc could ever enlighten someone like the messages said showing its poetry cause thats what poetry does. Im sure rza meth or anyother one would agree, go ahead and ask em if u know how too. Yes there are many forms of poetry can comparin diff styles of poetry to eachother cause theyre not the same is stupid like sayin blacks and whites arent the same when end the in theyre all humans, hip hop is a form of poetry eventhough its a diff form of poetry than ur text books say its poetry! stop over analiz. shit and see it in simple form, its easy its poetry!!

    Thought it was "Rhythm And Poetry" - either way I suppose

    Rap is poetical, but it's not poetry, it's a form of it though.

    Thinking about it, pretty much any song lyrics can be classed as a form of poetry. Not just cofined to rap.
