Eminem is not a rapper, Jay-Z is not a rapper, Kanye West, and almost all the others mentioned above are not rappers. But the ones mentioned by 0311_Grunt and illmatic5 are real rappers. What the others do is pop music. De La said on their album in 1993, "It might blow up, but it won't go pop." And it didn't go pop. But you can never hear it in the radio. If you don't understand, listen to De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Naughty By Nature, Salt 'N' Pepa, Fugees, Black Sheep, Ice Cube, Domino, Pete Rock & C.L Smooth.
