So the distinction doesn’t lie between hip-hop and rap, but between those who are MCing and those who just happen to rap. It lies between those interested in honoring the foundation that was laid beforehand by putting forth quality work and acknowledging the culture of hip-hop and those who are just rhyming words together and applying a formula to get rich quick. To put it plainly, in 1997’s  Rhyme & Reason , MC and hip-hop philosopher KRS One describes the two terms with great efficacy, stating that rap is something that is done, while hip-hop is something that is lived. So while we absolutely need to have some people asking for more from hip-hop, we also need to make sure those people know the difference between the art being watered down for marketing purposes and seeing it evolve to remain relevant to the people who make and consume it.

In late 2007, the Marine Corps planned to replace all Humvees in combat zones with MRAP vehicles, although that changed. [39] [40] [41] [23] As armored vehicles were considered an "urgent need" in Afghanistan, the MRAP program was primarily funded under an "emergency war budget".

While rap songs are made up of many parts, the verse is by far the most important. This is where a rapper shows off their skills, intellect, and rhyming ability, and develops the ideas of the song in depth. No matter what your topic, passion, or style, writing rap verses is an incredible method of artistic expression, as long as you keep a few tips in mind.

Don't get us wrong. This Drake vs. Pusha T situation could get really interesting. We hope lots of great music results.

But considering the current conversation, we figured its a good time to update this list of the Corniest Rap Beefs.

Two major styles of the Beatmania cabinet were originally created, the standard cabinet, and the mini-style cabinet. The standard cabinet was taller and wider than the mini-style, and included a 29" screen, versus the 20" screen on the mini cabinet. The 1P/2P/Effect buttons were placed on the vertical face of the cabinet on the mini, while placed between the keys, ahead of the coin drop on standard cabinets. The mini-cabinet contained 6 speakers, 4 normal mid/high range, and 2 larger subs. The standard cabinet contained 10 speakers, including the 2 subs. Functionally the game boards, HDD, and romchips were the same between cabinets. Finally, the mini cabinet had a smaller spacing between the turntable and the keys, and the turntable was approximately half the diameter of the standard version. Today the mini-cabinet is much harder to find, especially in the United States.

2017 was a very good year for rap music. We were reminded by vets like Jay-Z and Black Thought that they're still immortal, watched their successors, like Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole , prove they're here to stay, and saw up-and-comers like Kevin Abstract claim their seat at the table. This year's list of best rap verses features the young, the old, the new, the underground, and a guy that's known for making R&B, culminating in the 20 verses that stood out to us the most. We always pick a rap verse of the month , yet we felt like we needed to leave some of those out for superior bars. These are the 20 Best Rap Verses of 2017.

Rap is a modern form of poetry, and lyrics are what distinguish good rappers from great ones. Great rap lyrics are personal and flow like water, blending into the song while making a point or theme like a great essay or story might. Writing great lyrics takes practice, but anyone can start at any time with just a pen and a piece of paper.
