There are three letters in the acronym for the rapper. Since the beginning of hip hop, rhythm-and-poetry has been a significant part of the American art scene. Rap artists express themselves in a way exclusive to the genre by improvising with words and chanting or rhyming lyrics, sometimes accompanied by flashy and engaging visuals.
Rap beats are subjective, depending only on how quickly or slowly the MC wants to read them. However, just as every MC has its distinct style, so does each rap song reflect the unique personality of its creator.
White rappers tend to be overlooked, and they are frequently the targets of criticism and scorn in the industry. These white rappers are finally getting the recognition they deserve as genre pioneers.
