Real Hip-Hop, is a type of hip-hop music, and an opposite term of fake hip-hop. Real hip-hop values lyricism, flow, political message than beats (of course they respect great producers too, such as DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Buckwild, Large Professor and L.E.S.). Most of today's real hip-hopper is consisted by Black American Muslim. Black American Muslim is known as very kind to people, not like Sand niggers (you can find out that from example such as Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali).
Also, real hip-hopper is NOT A RAPPER, but A MC. KRS-One told the difference between both sides. This is what he told on MTV's interview, by freestyle rapping technique:
KRS-one 20 years I rock
I do it for JMJ and Scott La Rock
This hip hop, and we’s a nation,
Don’t you want to hear more KRS on your radio station?
Instead of broadcasting how we smokin’ trees
on the radio we need to hear more local MC’s
Where you at? Come on where you at?
This is the difference between MC’ing and rap
Rappers spit rhymes that are mostly illegal
MC’s spit rhymes to uplift they people
Now you understand the real hip-hop right? It's awesome. Ok, party people, stand up and support real hip-hop music!
Real hip-hop is simply indicates the hip-hop before Lil Wayne's birth (so does Lil Wayne is the biggest enemy of real hip-hop). So if you wanna know the history, simply check Wikipedian article hip-hop music. Coz Uncyclopedia hates stiff things like history.
Ok so I'll give you an easy chronical table.

Real Hip-Hop: The big picture
Besides fake hip-hop usually rhymes about dreams - money, prostitution, crime, smoking, cars and hoes -, real hip-hop rhymes really legit about the life - monkey, provision, Christ, breathing, riding trains and unrequited love -. Ah, monkey means, uhm, some niggers who can't shut their mouth up.
You can find origin of Hip-Hop in poetry. Don't mixed it up with something like wannabe gangsta things. Becoming real hip-hop MC is very difficult thing, and many have tried but fell down because of their lackness on poetic sense, technique of freestyling, and sharp eye on movement happening across the globe. Lyrics is something that usually pass through your right ear from left ear, and gone. But just think about it. Why does famous rock singers and artists, such as John Lennon, Led Zeppelin, Michael Jackson, and Bob Dylan, got their everlasting admiration from both critics and fans? It's simply because there was something "hit" their hearts...yes...something called, message.
Of course hip-hop also not an exception, because it is the human's art. You know, just like Gogh's deep self-portrait has something "really powerful" to move people, hip-hop, the counter-culture of debilitated ghettos across the state, have an intense impression that bounce people, vibrate people and sometimes make people cry. And what works as it's medium? Yes, it is the lyrics. Beat, flow, and rest of things can say as it's ornaments.
But yes, even if it's message, people wont impress if it's like this: "fuck you, Im livin in ghetto/I feel headache like eating mentos/screw you give me more bank notes/". Yes, it's not only sounds arbitrary like n00b gangsta, but it offend your feelings. We know rappers often include the word "fuck", but it's an outcome of hip-hop's wildness, and suffocating ghetto people's real voice. But it's not for offending people directly of course, you know everyone knows that it wont help to get rid of their agony.
Simple poem gonna be like this:
- Nas - "It Ain't Hard to Tell"
Speak with criminal slang, begin like a violin
End like Leviathan, it's deep, well let me try again
This is some example from Nas' album Illmatic, which applaused by many as the best hip-hop album ever. In these lines we can see Nas' pride of ghetto-born and serve as a criminal, for surviving their times.
Hip-hop is originally genred as "Rebel Music", a music genre invented by Ice T who was suffering the cops' criminal investigation. It also links with it's origin on slave age. Naturally enough, there was no slaves who glad their situation in 19 Centuries as their masters way of treating; they treated slaves as something like a dog, gave them a doggystyle name, at last when slaves attempted to escape, masters search and capture them back rapidly, and cut their arms and legs. Now, still the most part of Black Americans are living in poor & dangerous environment which drugs have widespreaded and STDs have sweeped, although nowadays people often mistakenly capture the situation like "Black Africans are enjoying this shit & dopes", "they pimpin' hoes on every blocks". This biased stereotype, which are formed by some such a wannabe gangstas who don't even have fortes on hip-hop side, (and of course don't have money!), fomenting the situation more worse and worser. In fact, those gangsta rappers have contracted lifetime employment with the government to spread the demogague, to blame blacks & hip-hop as the menace of society. It is the truth which still covered under the surface. This is the reason of why MCs often bring the topic about politics, that actually no one eager to listen.
Here's some little easy examples of songs talking about politics:
- Lupe Fiasco - "Conflict Diamonds"
Shooters of the innocent, torturers of the witnesses, burners of the businesses
And my bracelet was the fuel
Uhh, I ain't pushing an agenda homie,
I'm jus' pushing the facts, FUCK BUSH
- Jay-Z - "Blue Magic"
Money over broads you got it, FUCK BUSH
- Outlawz - "FUCK BUSH"
uh, FUCK BUSH, America can you hear me?
uh, FUCK BUSH, all my ghetto people feel me
Take a look at todays hip-hop - I know you've notice that whole albums which certified as Platinum, or Gold, or even Silver, are rated around from 3/5 to 1/5 on each magazines/critics/viewers/and even users review. This thing, is indeed PEE REVIEWs, that really doesn't exist on other genres, and shouldn't exist on hip-hop too. For example, I got three shitty hip-hop albums that I'm even negative to call them 'album', right now - Tha REAList by Plies, iSouljaboytellem by Soulja Boy, and Back to the Trap House by Gucci Mane, respectively -. I ain't a n00b basher, either in the game and in the reality, but yes, I gotta say this because it's Uncyclopedia. Tha REAList was rated 1/10 by Rap.About.com for real. A music reviewer Sputnikmuzik, rated 1/50 on iSouljaboytellem. And the last, Back to the Trap House, was rated 1/100 by author of HipHopDX.com. Although, all of those albums sold over 300,000 copies and getting considerable popularity from many hip-hop listeners. This is the shameful fact of hip-hop now. If I say this instantly, in a genre hip-hop, worse song will get higher public esteem, instead of it's backward.
Dead Prez wrote some simple but interesting lyrics against them: Wake up soldiers!
- Dead Prez - "Hip Hop"
You would rather have a lexus, some justice, a dream or some substance?
A beamer, a necklace or freedom?
Still a nigga like me dont playa hate, I just stay awake
This real hip hop, and it dont stop until we get the po-po off the block
