Genres of Music-Rap

Hola mis amigos!!! Hope all of you had a great week and are having an awesome weekend!! I know I'm trying my best but I'm exhausted. Senior year is wearing me out already!!

Anyway, today I'll be giving you guys some info on Rap music AKA Hip Hop (Some rap can also called R&B). Rap is something that started back in the '70's and is an incredibly popular genre nowadays. According to, "today hip hop music is one of the fastest growing and most popular forms of music in America or the world," despite the controversial lyrics contained in some of the songs.

Like other songs, most rap songs contain personal stories, important events, social events, or just something the writer/artist went through during a period in their life. The rhythmic beats and the personalized messages that are transmitted through the songs are two reasons why rap music is so popular nowadays. For some, the lyrics are extremely relatable and rhythm is catchy. Rap music also helped bring about breakdancing as well.

And although rap music is catchy and often has good messages, it's not for everyone. The lyrics sometimes talk about violence, drugs, and other topics which may not be suitable for some. But it still remains a popular genre. For me, a lot of the songs are super catchy!! Some of my favorites include:

-Party Like a Rockstar-Shop Boyz
-Get it Shawty-Lloyd
-Make me Better-Fabulous
-Don't Matter-Akon
-Lose Yourself-Eminem

Alright guys, my apologies for the short blog, but that's it for today!! Have a great week everyone!
