Poetry Vs. Rap
Poetry: describing an object, describing the world, environment, mood, and feelings. Poetry can be viewed in first person and third person, unlike raps it is mainly on first person. For example, if a poet decides to write about trees that would be third person. Poetry creates a calm and peaceful environment around us today.
Rap: talks about drugs, girls, life, clubbing, killing, or dissing. Today if you ask anyone the names they know in the rap world, they will either name, names like: Eminem, Dr.Dre, Flo-ri-da, Lil Wayne, P.Diddy, and etc. Before an artist writes down their rap on paper, they pick a topic to rap about. Rapping is more vulgar, anger, and it has more accents to it.
Either way... To me, Poetry is superior to rap because poetry basically created rap! I hope nobody feels offended by this topic, I'm just stating facts. I want people to know that poetry can deliver a powerful message just like rap music... But poetry has a way to connect to people better than rap music (where rap music connects to people to violence, sex, money, and reputation.)
