Hardcore Rap

Public Enemy

Hardcore rap is a from of rap where the beats are louder and more important than the lyrical content.  Vocals are delivered more deliberately than traditional rap sometimes with more of a yell or rasp to the voice.  Lyrics tend to deal more with violence, sex, and drugs.  These elements make thus type of music a perfect marriage with heavy metal.  The combination led to rap metal, rapcore, and nu metal.

Artists include Dr. Dre, Public Enemy, Onyx, NWA, and M.O.P.
