The mother of a rapper

When the first award shows featured rappers, they were frequently lumped in with other music genres and entertainers, such as pop or hip hop. The various award categories began to recognize an artist as a rapper as the rap venue began to distinguish itself and emerge as a full-fledged music and entertainment style. While many people associate rap music with explicit lyrics and derogatory subject matter, the first rappers sang music that was broadcast on public radio without the need to censor any of the lyrics.
