Is Rap a Form of Poetry?
Hello, I know I haven’t posted in a REALLY long time. But lets hope I can start posting more often again. So, here we go. Yes, rap definitely is a form of poetry. In poetry you use lots of figurative language, sometimes lots of rhyming words, and much more. You use these things in a poem. Well, rap basically has all the same things. Rap may sound a lot different then when you read a poem. But that’s because of auto-tune, and the way they sing the rap songs. Rap, and poems are basically the same way, they just sound different because the way they sing them. So yes, rap is a form of poetry.
