Rap as a music genre with strong emphasis on rhyming lyrics. As a genre with strong ties to the urban Black community, the bulk of the songs focus on living in impoverished neighborhoods, dealing with corruption, and seeking the finer things in life, but plenty of rap songs also focus on the importance of Christianity in the Black community. As large portions of the rap community began being about sex, drugs, and greed, there began splinter movements where rappers would focus on intellectualism and skepticism. Those are the primary rap songs found here, in addition those those satirizing the genre.
