    Rohmulo: Rap é diferente de Hiphop. Azealia faz Rap e é considerada mais house.

    \\/ na verdade o Roman Reloaded é bem meio a meio viu, até as musicas mais pop tem uns rapzinhos, e esse é o cd dela que mais tem pop, fora isso o resto é bem rap/r&b mesmo.

    merveiles: Mas a Nicki sempre faz isso, ela lança mil singles urban/hip-hop no começo, daí no meio da era, lança uns 2 mais pops. É questão de comercialismo, exigência da gravadora e tal.

    todo mundo sabe que ela mudou de gênero no começo da carreira pra ser reconhecida. a questão é: pq ela continua fazendo? mas deixa o fluxo criativo dela, tanto faz tanto fez
