    Hip-Hop is the name of the culture. It includes DJ'ing (the beat, the music), B-Boying (the dance, also known as breakin), Graffiti art (muralism, tags,) and Rap (the word, the voice). Rapping is what an emcee (mc, lyricist) does when he orates to the beat. Many schools of thought include the 5th element of knowledge, which in an overstanding of self, community, history, and divine purpose.

    rap = the bullshit music you hear on the radio.
    hiphop = the non-bullshit music that you rarely hear unless you dig deeper.

    rapping is the vocal style that is a part of hip hop music. there is no musical differentiation between the two. they signify the same genre when used as genre descriptions.

    every other explanation is someone trying to be a tool, including the guys that give you a long drawn out explanation of hip hop culture. elitism.
