Hip-hop dance is too difficult and does not have technique. Therefore, Ballet and Jazz techinques are necessary in hip-hop.

The music is just freedom of speech. There is nothing wrong with the lyrics.

Michael Jackson and Usher are REAL hip-hop dancers.

Bboying, popping and locking are played out, krumping is a real hip-hop dance.

There is no such thing as a hip-hop culture, it is just a fad.


These are the points I will argue FOR.
Who wants to accept the challenge of this debate?? hehe.

LOL... this reminds me of a little quote from my friend... I personally quoted her.

"Without rap, there would be no hip-hop."

I'll take the first, I guess...

So. If hip-hop is too difficult, doesn't that mean there's just techniques that you can't understand?

I'll answer the Yellow Ranger... known as iH0p... first:
You bring up a hard point to argue against...

However, to each his own. YOU may not like my expressions of free will, but I like my own, and surely someone else out there does.

If I can only sell to people my idea of free will and speech... then I can make some big bucks. Surely mental/phycical/emotions healths can come into question, but there are safegards in place in society, like MPAA rathings and the sort. The goverment mandates "Parental Advisory" labels on records. This gives a parent the right to exercise their freewill of buying an explicit album for their kids, or buying it for themselves and letting their kids listen to it. And even though it may be against company policies, an employee of Tower Records can just as easily exercise his/her free will and make a choice of whether or not to sell this record to someone who is obviously not of the right age or mental capacity to make the decision to buy this album... because their young feeble mind is not developed enough to have its own opinion.

To answer Jahz:

I am elitist. My dances are far superior than yours. Therefore when I discover I can't do yours, then I must inherently add my "superior" techniques to make up for my imcompetencies.

PS- ih0p almost gave me an anurism with that one... go ahead.. kill your future husband honey...

Mmmm.. Mrs. Conley...
You miss the point about the safeguards... those are the action limiters.

What IS stopping someone from just sitting on their balcony and shooting people at random??? Is it morals, or sometimes is it the fact that they FEAR the consequences...

The legal system is the action limiter. You kill someone... you fear life in prison or the death penalty.

As for censoring pants... that's just 100% stupid... and I'm not answering to that.

I won.

Nice invent :D im lovin this debate, and i'll be happy to join in.

I would like to answer Jahz for pointing out about:

"Without rap, there would be no hip-hop."

I had a friend about 2 years who told me "Hip Hop is Rap!"

or "Hip Hop music is the softer variant of Rap music!" or even "Rap is equal to MCing!"

k now i want to drop some 2 cents for the beginneers reading up on this:

Hip Hop is the culture. Rap is the music.

There is nothing like Hip Hop music. You may call it R'n'B or Pop.

MCing is the creative expression with lyrics (NOT THE 50 CENT STUFF ABOUT GIRLS, RIMS, DRUGS!). It's entertaining and moving up the crowd. It's about skillful and creative lyrics. Not every song that has Rap parts in it is an result of the Hip Hop culture. Don't believe the hype! Hit Pop is not Hip Hop!

----

Hip Hop could be a fad, Its just the way every city sees it as. In the suburbs, ya hip hop could be a fad, but for Osaka, Japan, its lifestyle for most cats.
