Default Re: Hip Hop?

Yeah I've read that KRS-One quote. And it kinda makes sense. If I was an artist and somebody asked me what I did, I wouldn't say I hip hop, I'd say I rap. And therefore you are a rapper. And as for a lifestyle, to define a hip-hop lifestyle is kind of hard now because it's skewed. First it started out with B-Boying and dance stuff. Then came the west coast-east coast thug style and now it's kind of preppy and skaterish (Common, Lupe). I know there's more to it than that but it's just my generalization of it all.
