There is no difference.

From 2pac to Vanilla Ice to Rakim to D4L, they are all rappers.

Anybody can rap

Anybody cant be a lyricist

A lyricist can rap about mostly anything and make it sound dope cuz of there versitility, knowledge etc etc

Lyricists might not be as good as rappers, but have cold a.ss lyrics so no one really notices....

A rapper isnt that good wit his words but is good at establishing a good flow over a beat, like bow wow, he dont write much of his sh*t, he had a ghost writer most of his career, cause he can flow, but he not very lyrical...

Thats my views...

So if a lyricist isnt a rapper, then what is he doing when he spits out the words he writes down?

Yeah thats what I'm talkin about and ppl confuse the two sometimes.. A lot of rappers that we listen to aren't lyricists.. Isn't that crazy?

The question should be what is the difference betweeen a Rapper and an MC?

A Rapper-Spits rhymes from a business perspective. Makes music for 106 & TRL Countdowns. Make songs for radio spins. One who makes songs that goes with the trend. A rapper Is Business Savvy. Basically, someone who has taken spitting rhymes as a job and as a means for income.

An MC-Does it for the love and or to put out some type of message. Is not necessarily in it for the money, but wants to be heard. One that wants to voice. One that is doing it for the artform. An MC does it for the love or to try to use his/her voice to say something.


I tried my best to define this. I hope I broke it down correctly. Not to toot my own horn, but nobody in this thread so far is even close in defining as how I am.

So when a lyricist spits his rhymes, is he lyrising? No, hes rapping. Its like trying to say hip hop and rap are different music.
