  Rapping - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rapping, the rhythmic delivery of rhymes, is one of the central elements of hip hop culture and music.
The first people to rap in the hip hop style were the DJs of the 1970s, such as Hollywood and Kool Herc, who rapped shout-outs to their friends as they DJ'd behind the turntables.
Rap is famous, however, for having its own vocabulary— from international hip hop slang to local/regional slang.

 Rapping - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Rapping is one of the elements of hip hop and the distinguishing feature of hip hop music; it is a form of rhyming lyrics spoken rhythmically over musical instruments, with a musical backdrop of sampling, scratching and mixing by DJs.
Rapping (as a self-conscious artistic school) began as a variation on the toasting found in reggae, funk and dub music, mixed with influences from jazz-related performance poetry (Langston Hughes's album Weary Blues being an important example; the Beats also notable), radio DJ patter, and the tradition of playing the dozens.
Battle raps can be written with complex rhyming techniques easier than raps that tell a story or convey a message because a battle rap can employ a vast array of metaphors to conjure images of rapper to rapper combat.

 Hip hop music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The terms rap and rap music are often used to describe hip hop music; the terms rap music and hip hop music are generally synonymous, although hip hop music is usually the preferred term used to describe hip hop songs without vocals.
In Latin America, rapping was already known in the 1980s, in the form of toasting, a part of Jamaican ragga music.
Mainstream stars rose to prominence in the Philippines, led by Michael V. Rap Asia, MC Lara and Lady Diane, and in Japan, where underground rappers had previously found a limited audience, and popular teen idols brought a style called J-rap to the top of the charts in the middle of the 1990s.

 Rapping : Rap
Rapping is one of the elements of hip hop; it is a form of rhyming lyrics spoken rythmically[?] over musical instruments, with a musical backdrop of sampling, scratching and mixing[?] by DJs.
Early rap music did not contain any sampling, probably due to the fact that at the time (1979-1985) the equipment was not available.
Rapping can be seen as one of the four elements of hip hop: MCing (rapping), DJing (mixing, cutting and scratching), graffiti, and breakdancing.

Rapping is another of the mediumship methods which could easily be mistaken as a trick or party game, but like all forms of spiritual contact, should never be treated as such.
For Rapping, ideally performed by a medium or experienced psychic, spirit is invited to communicate via knocking sounds.
The rapping may be slight or hard to hear either at first or throughout the sitting, or may be clear loud knocks.

 Falsehoods in the Great Controversy - Rapping   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The mysterious rapping with which modern spiritualism began was not the result of human trickery or cunning, but was the direct work of evil angels, who thus introduced one of the most successful of soul-destroying delusions.
They produced the rapping sounds, they admitted, first by using an apple tied to a string, which they thudded against the wall of a darkened room by tugging the string, and later by simply popping the joints of their big toes.
I saw that soon it would be considered blasphemy to speak against the rapping, and that it would spread more and more, that Satan's power would increase and some of his devoted followers would have power to work miracles and even to bring down fire from heaven in the sight of men.

Skilful rapping, or emceeing, or whatever you want to call it, is something few people realise how difficult it is to do.
Speed rapping is a gimmick that emcees often use to show off their skills, and having a brilliant delivery is crucial to this.
This is one of the most difficult rapping skillsÂ… it takes real, imaginative, quick thinking and creative lyricism to freestyle well.

Rapping begins with an analysis of Hollywood's women, families and men, then moves to her strongest essays in which she convincingly unravels the female fascination with and attraction to soap operas, talk shows and made-for-TV movies.
Even where she does note that feminism has had an impact, she begs the question of how and why, suggesting only that any changes are based solely on consumerism and capitalist demands.
Despite limited attention to gay and lesbian concerns, and very little attention to race and ethnicity, Rapping provides a much needed academic and political call to carry on the ideals and goals of second wave feminism.
