The Hip Hop Urban Culture

Rap music belongs to rap culture predominately among African Americans and Latinos (another two elements are graffiti art and breakdancing).

Hiphop lyrics typically employ inner-city slang with poetic devices for example alliteration, Ace Hood assonance and rhyme. The slang of hiphop lyrics might include words like, yo, dis, flow, phat and homie. Rap lyrics happen to be likened to what rock music lyrics was once, and in many cases have taken the area of rock and folk songs inside the culture. Hip hop lyrics contain many references how the listeners can connect with. Rap lyrics that tell of excess wealth and luxury of artists may connect to a small grouping of people who have such dreams.

As in the text, hip hop lyrics are poetry, but poetry with something more included with it. Some hiphop lyrics are incredibly articulate in that they express a specific subject in a different form. Even though it is valid that many hiphop lyrics are slang it's also correct that many of our commonly spoken language is slang and sometimes vulgar. Hence, allowing us to see that you have a distinction between descriptive and prescriptive language.
