Answer: rap

I.e., rap is an aspect of hip-hop.

According to Bamabaataa, "Hip Hop means the whole culture of the movement.. when you talk about rap. Rap is part of the hip hop culture. The emceeing...The djaying is part of the hip hop culture. The dressing the languages are all part of the hip hop culture. The break dancing the b-boys, b-girls you act, walk, look, talk are all part of hip hop culture.. and the music is colourless... Hip Hop music is made from Black, brown, yellow, red, white.. whatever music that gives you the grunt.. that funk.. that groove or that beat.. It's all part of hip hop....".
