Lyle Is Rap Folk? (146* d) RE: Is Rap Folk? 25 Oct 99

This is meant as a sincere question, not one to agitate or anything like that.

I've never seen two people who can agree completely what "folk music" really is. On bluegrassL, a big argument appears on a regular basis about what "bluegrass music" really is. The same can be said for lots of music styles.

So my question is, how can anyone say rap is or is not folk music without a clear definition of what folk music is?

Thanks for enlightening me!
