Rap is a genre of popular music that originated in the United States in the late 1970s. It is characterized by rhyming lyrics spoken rhythmically over a musical backing. Rap is often accompanied by a beat and is part of hip hop culture. It is often used to express social and political issues, and is often seen as a form of protest music. Rap is also known for its use of sampling, which is the reuse of existing recordings in a new song.
