When the RAP initially originated back in 1970’s in the streets of USA.. There was a cause. People of similar minds used to form groups, hit the streets and just free-style (rap) about their feelings. It was more of a revolution. But later RAP has slowly started to become another Music genre. There are many rappers in our country who’ve made millions. Also there are people who have a purpose and soul in their raps, like DIVINE.
