Alternative rap music differs from underground rap due to its higher tendency to mix genres and the fact that its fan base is built around a more typical hip hop fan.
With a heavy dose of rock, funk, jazz, or soul, alternative rap music appeals to fans that may not listen to other forms of hip hop, whereas underground rap music is enjoyed by a large number of fans that also listen to other rap styles.
Because Alternative Music Rap is less frequently listened to by die-hard rap fans and listened to by more rock fans, a common name for this genre is Rap/Rock.

  90s Music
Rap Music Rap of the late 70's and 80's, commonly called "old school", was made by DJs scratching records and playing drum loops, with MCs rapping over the resulting rhythms.
By the '90s, gangsta rap, which originally was in direct opposition to such pop-oriented rappers as MC Hammer, had become smoothed over and stylish, and consequently was more popular than ever, as evidenced by the success of pop-gangsta Puff Daddy in the late 90's.
Alternative Rock Music Alternative pop/rock is essentially a catch-all term for post-punk bands from the mid-'80s to the mid-'90s.

 Rock Music
Alternative rock was born out of a grassroots reaction to the commercialization of rock music in the 70's.
Manifest in gangsta rap and sadrock are expressions of angst and apathy.
Though gangsta rap and alternative rock are popularly viewed as divergent (based primarily on the population of artists), there is much cross-over in their audiences (which would be a rarity with rap and country).

Alternative Rap refers to hip-hop groups that refuse to conform to any of the traditional stereotypes of rap, such as gangsta, funk, bass, hardcore, and party rap.
Not only did this have the end result of rap reverting back to instrumentation, thereby altering how the artists worked, it also meant that several albums in the pipeline had to be delayed in order for samples to clear.
The so-called alternative scene had just blown up in '91 and '92, so commercial radio was actually playing something close to variety and major labels were signing acts and developing them at an unprecedented level.

Alternative Rap относится к hip-hop командам, которые отказываются следовать любым традиционным стереотипам rap, таким как gangsta, funk, bass, hardcore и party rap.
Хотя командам Arrested Development и Fugees удалось добиться успеха и заявить о себе, большинство alternative rap групп остаются в основном музыкантами для alternative rock фэнов, а не для hip-hop или pop аудитории.

Alternative and Rock are the most workable genres for a new band/label, with commercial, commercial specialty, and non-commercial airplay opportunities available...on a small or large scale.
No, the styles in the alternative list above are not really all "alternative", and the ones in the rock list are not really all "rock".

Sure, the alternative presses paid plenty of lip service to the albums and artists involved in the scene and, every once in a while, an artist like The Roots or The Streets broke through to the mainstream as did the inevitable anomalies in pop rap music, like OutKast.
But commercial radio still hesitates to touch the likes of Doctor Octagon, Cannibal Ox, Beans, Blackalicious and a host of other artists rapping their asses off, but in a manner very different then what you might be used to hearing bump out of the local, urban-demographic, radio station.
The rap scene in Kansas City is as divided as the population.

Jazz-rap styled itself as a more positive alternative to the hardcore/gangsta movement taking over rap's mainstream at the dawn of the '90s, and concerned itself with spreading hip-hop to listeners unable to embrace or identify with the music's increasing inner-city aggression.
During the mid- to late '90s, as alternative rap moved into a wider-ranging eclecticism, jazz-rap was not often pursued as an exclusive end, although the Roots frequently incorporated it in their live-instrumentation hip-hop.
One of the few bright spots in a year when the rap scene was largely devoid of originality, MC Solaar came across as refreshing as a cool Parisian breeze.

 Jim Infantino's PoMo Alternative Folk-Rap by Seth Rogovoy
But now that he has morphed into the leader of his own alternative folk-rock trio, Jim's Big Ego, it will be hard to mistake Infantino for a "Kumbaya"- toting folksinger.
Infantino's mix of folk, funk, alternative rock, rap, spoken word and other styles uniquely his own can be heard on his latest album, "Titanic" (Gadfly).
The group has played two shows in the past year at the Night Shift Cafe in North Adams: both were the sort of incendiary club shows that unify a crowd of diverse and disparate strangers, which is what club-rock at its best is all about.

The Final RAP was submitted to the Board pursuant to a request from the San Jose Redevelopment Agency (SJRDA) to the Board for cleanup guidelines and a separate letter from the SJRDA to Brandenburg dated April 22, 1999, requesting the preparation of a remedial action plan.
The Final RAP proposes Alternative 3 as the alternative final remedial action developed as a replacement remedial measure that would be implemented in the event of Site redevelopment.
Because the recommended alternative final remedial action requires demolition of currently occupied buildings at the site, the alternative final remedial action is proposed by Brandenburg to be implemented only in the event of Site redevelopment.
