Refers to Japanese Hip-hop (Nip from Nippon, the native word for Japan and Hop from Hip-hop) as well as a general reference to any Asian Hip-hop artist or group.
While similar in most ways to western Hip-hop/Rap, many Japanese Hip-hop groups tend use a "softer" mix of R&B, Rock, and Pop music along with multiple MCs and/or vocals. This is due in large part to the lack of an established fan base for "true" Hip-hop/Rap music in Japan, though it is gaining popularity.
Examples of Nip-hop artists: TERIYAKI BOYZ (featured on the F&F: Tokyo Drift OST), Zeebra (considered to be one of the first "true" Japanese rappers), K Dub Shine, Aquarius, RIZE, Rhymester, Dabo, Dragon Ash, Seamo, Back-On, M-flo, Rip-Slyme, three Nation, Home Made Kazoku (their songs are featured in several popular anime titles)
