Style: Hip Hop : Comedy Rap
Greatest Album |  Greatest Artists |  Greatest Tracks
Comedy Rap is hip-hop that is designed to amuse and entertain. Frequently, it is the raps themselves that are humorous, but the music itself -- particularly in the case of Biz Markie, arguably the greatest comedy rapper to date -- can be clever and funny, as well. Comedy rap flourished in the '80s, when hip-hop was itself was lighter than it was in the '90s (when gangsta rap kept the music somber). There have been a few rap parodies, such as Arsenio Hall's Chunky A, but most comedy rap is a combination of real hip-hop and street humor.
