[Quiz]Do you have a strong rap culture to be a good player in this musical quiz?
As you probably know, rap was born in the 1970's in the Black Ghettos, in the United States, at the time of the Black Panthers. The word RAP refers in English to Ryhtm And Poetry, but also to the verb to Rap which means to speak. In rap, the performer does not sing, but speaks in a rhythmic way by applying rhymes, which is called flow. Rap is a means of speech in which the rapper often tells his story, or seeks to denounce social problems such as homophobia, racism, poverty, exclusion or unemployment. While rap was mainly represented by black populations, it was in 1990 that it began to be democratised to all populations, the best known of which is the case of Eminem.
