First, let me begin by saying that both numerical proof would be accepted, and theoretical proof, would be accepted.
Now, on to my opening statement. Though I do believe rap is a form of art, I wouldn't define it as music. Music is defined as ---
1 a: the science or art of ordering tones or sounds in succession, in combination, and in temporal relationships to produce a composition having unity and continuity b: vocal, instrumental, or mechanical sounds having rhythm, melody, or harmony
2 a: an agreeable sound : euphony <her voice was music to my ears> b: musical quality <the music of verse>
3: a musical accompaniment <a play set to music>4: the score of a musical composition set down on paper5: a distinctive type or category of music <there is a music for everybody Eric Salzman>
http://www.m-w.com ...
I shall refer to definition 1 as the definition applying to this argument. You may say "Wait a second, rap has distinctive beats and tones, and continuity" Alas, it doesn't. Though most rapists DO include a steady beat for the background, the MAIN instrument in the arrangement is their voice. Clearly, rappers do not sing. They are merely talking in rhythm. So, I would define rap, as poetry.
I shall await a rebuttal from whoever chooses to accept this argument.

I like rock better, maybe now they call it alternative?? Metallica is my favorite band, though we love Papa Roach, Seether, Avenged Sevenfold, lots others in my house.

Rock is better in my opinion..i can relate to the words of rock songs and metal songs better than rap..dont get me wrong though, i love 2Pac and Snoop..just now-a-days rap sucks a$$..im a big country fan, too, so im kinda all f***ed up..lol..i just like music i can relate to and really understand..few favs: Manson, Green Day, Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, Staind, Blue October, Floggin Molly, Blake Shelton, Gary Stewart, Clay Walker(all-time sexiest cowboy on Earth ; )...unless my fiance would dress up as a cowboy for me, just once...lol..but he already said that would never happen), CCR, AC/DC, Kelly Clarkson..just a few..lol

if they made more metal songs about the hood which they sorta dstarted doing already.. then it would de rapifiy hood people probably..
and force lil wayne to .. finish guitar..

lil wayne needs to make a metal band.. and do rapping metal like suicidal angels..

and clal his metal band lil wayne gets high or something.. and jsut i dont know maybe not call it that but..

call it bleeding wayne.. or something.. and have where hecuts himself and fake blood pours out..

then he raps and plays fast guitar .. be like shots.. cops duck trucks shots cops

but then he would prlay guitar or something in addition to it..

or or he should not even play guitar but just have someone else play for him and rap on top of it..

amtually all rthe

actually no none of that should probably happen but i do enjoy rap and rock colaborations with like lincoln park and stuff...
