    Rap is a part of the Hip Hop culture, it is the genre of the Hip Hop culture, I wouldnt include RnB as a part of hip hop.


true. also, R&B has singing and tonality, while Hip-Hop is spoken. and everything about R&B (from its more mellow, jazz-like melodies to the themes of its lyrics, which deal with love, relationships, or sometimes the general black plight) is usually much less in-your-face than Hip-Hop. if i'm not mistaking, the roots of R&B stem from both Blues and Jazz.
