Rules of Hip Hop

edited September 13 in The Reason
I remember Mos Def saying that a problem with hip hop is that we don't have guidelines like other genres. What are some things yall think should be in the Ten Commandments of Hip hop?


Ghost writing automatically disqualifies you from being a GOAT rapper (for you slow niggas, this doesn't include hooks)


Sales do not equal quality-just because someone sells out, doesn't automatically make their music good.


Add more if you can think of any.

    Hip Hop isn't just a genre though, it's a culture.

    I would say anything that starts as a musical expression/activity that either belongs to a greater cultural continuum or creates a culture around it has either written or unwritten rules

    I don't like rappers that basically copy from everything hott at the time and used it as their own or slightly switch it up and claim it as their own .... it's usually those lil slick rappers that everyone likes and get's away with everything

    that hang around snitches but never get's any dirt on him ...

    there are certain rappers that can tell you anything and you believe it like not writing out songs but just freestyle the songs ... smh but people believe anything when they are infatuated with a certain rapper... yeah right

    SUC boyz would do freestyles and really made the shit much more popular but u could tell it was real cuz they would make mistakes on a Dj Screw tape ... straight of the top of the dome

    Im not saying you can't do a freestyle without mistakes but it aint gonna be just perfect

    those type of freestyle most likely is pre-rehearsed

    You can do a freestyle or 2 off the top superb az shit

    but a whole album off the dome no mistakes no edits? come on dude who you foolin ,,,

    oh yeah those krazy infatuated brain washed stans .... not trying to be mean but come on man

    I think I will say most of rappers break this rule...

    Always give props the rappers before you, especially if you borrowed something from them (i.e their flow, lyrics, beats)...
