Concept rap

Home | Up | Next


The first concept raps were rapped verses which told a story, as opposed to being used as a form of a battle rap, bragging, or nonsense. Such verses have been popular in hip hop music since the early days of hip hop culture, and several verses of the 1979 recording by The Sugarhill Gang, "Rapper's Delight" are concept raps.

When a concept rap becomes adopted and popularized by the majority of rappers, it is no longer a concept rap. Telling a story was an original concept rap in the early days of old school hip hop. However, since most rappers have now adopted this motif in their lyrics, it is no longer considered a concept rap when a rapper raps out a story in his or her lyrics. New concepts are constantly emerging in the lyrics of rap. Some are adopted, and other are not.
