Poetry is perhaps one of the oldest forms of literature, created long before the invention of writing itself and it continues to be extremely popular and appreciated today.

One of the main differences between poetry and rap. It the beat itself. Poetry leaves a lot of space for personal interpretation in terms of reading out loud and understanding the peace, while rap songs are quite strict about this. In addition, rap needs a musical background, thus listening to a rap song without the beat and the background instruments would diminish its effect. Poetry on the other hand can be left to the subjectivity of the reader in terms of pace and rhythm.

If you ask rappers what they think, the answers are very simple: most of them consider themselves poets and surely this is not far from the truth. The talent and skill required to compose a good rap song are comparable with the talent of a very skilled writer.

Rap music is poetry. This is because even the points argued against it such as the non-standard use of language in rap music do not hold water. Traditional poetry employed poetic devices which is the non-standard form of language. In summary, rap music is poetry and the opposition given lack viable support.

But as you probably rap have some stereotypes, if you didn’t know that, how long have you been under the rock? But rap always sees as something criminal or gangster rap, and something is racial. The stereotypes of aggression and violence in hip hop isn’t just a stereotype about the musical genre; at its core, it is a reflection of the way our society perceives black men. If the mention of hip hop invokes a feeling of distaste and an image of an irreverent black man with gold chains and tattoos but you are unable to name specific artists and the reasons you dislike their songs, this distaste has likely been informed by stereotypes.

Many rappers make good quality music, and how about not swearing. And makes good lyrics. I am talking about NF.

He is a great lyricist due to his amazing use of non-explicit words to describe his personal life and give personal advice to others.

But many rappers tend to swear, the reason is that swearing is used in rap music to show strong emotion and feeling swearing-in rapping is an expression word to just show feeling. But rap in the start was used as a protest against our government, to tell them. And the government wanted to censor raps, but that a whole history you can read about.

But the reason I brought that up is, that rap and poetry are the same, just without the beat. But the poetry/rap I like is the explanation raps/poetry. Before I read about a given subject in school, I used to search: photosynthesis rap, global warming rap, newtons 2 law rap. And those helped me big time, cause I don’t want to study 10 hours days before exams. I like to learn and know stuff. So I make boring subjects more enjoyable and I like them more. Because the rhymes schemes you remember for a long time. In the reading, you only remember about 50%, (but I do hope that you all remember all my poems).

Why did I talk about science?

Well, I am using poems in my studies. I am in stems school. So science a big deal of my day, so keeping up with everything can be hard. That is why poems help with my studies. I can give you an example, my sister is just begun learning exponent, and she couldn’t understand it. So I made a poem about it (you can read it): https://ansarsblog.com/?s=exponent
