Hip-hop is the blanket genre (like rock or metal) and rap is a sub-genre (like rockabilly or speed metal). Other styles of hip-hop include turntablism, (new school) reggaeton, trip-hop, and low bap.

But then it developed into something bigger where now many say it is the job of an MC to educate and send a positive message rather than talk about hoes and cars and gold chains. Here's a decent video, I hope was helpful.

This is the correct answer, and I like because it says I am right. I was not guessing I've read several interviews where emcees say as much.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

The origins of Rapping are in Jamacian soundsystems but this is rarely recognised in America, which is a shame considering that they are the best at it these days.

Aaah. I get it now... I think. Sean Kingston and Fort Minor are both hip-hop, but Fort Minor is rap and Sean Kingston isn't. Eh?

BTW. Unless you're a hick, rap and wrap sound different. To say rap you make a face like an orangutan, to say wrap you make an "ooooh" face. Try it.

What are you talking about? They are pronounced the exact same way. They are spelled the same way phonetically even.

You're half right, Jamaican radio personalities would talk over reggae instrumentals and the trend reached New York, where it evolved and turned into the art form it is today. So rapping does have its roots in Jamaica, but it was really the MC's in Newy York that shaped it. I guess you could say Jamaica was the quarry for the raw materials and the Americans were the artisans.
