Term recently coined by Mos Def, now used
freqently to describe
the degeneration of hip-hop from an art form and expressive outlet
to glorified criminalistic
behavior and corporate domination of a once-underground phenomenon, i.e. De La Soul or KRS-One, who rap about every day events and important issues vs. 50 Cent
(By-products of The Rape Over), who rap about murder, theft
and what they buy with their millions of dollars (For example, 50 Cent
's newest album is titled <i>The Massacre</i>).
"We over-do it add the fire and explosion to it/We're so confused so we run rap music
MTV is runnin
this rap shit/Viacom
this rap shit/AOL and Time Warner runnin
this rap shit/We poke out the ashes for a chance
Cocaine, is runnin
this rap shit/Hennessey, is runnin
this rap shit..." -Mos Def, "The Rape Over"
