Rap music is a genre that originated in African American communities in the United States. It is characterized by rhythmic and rhyming speech, often accompanied by beats and electronic instrumentation. The lyrics often address social and political issues, personal experiences, and boastful claims. The genre has evolved over time, with subgenres such as trap and mumble rap gaining popularity. Contemporary rap music often features collaborations with artists from other genres, and has become a mainstream cultural force.
