I'm sure Rap is a form of poetry and Poetry isn't Haram? I thought the male voice and the drum beat were Halal?

I was asked on one of my Facebook pages Music is Haram-

Q: I'm sure Rap is a form of poetry and Poetry isn't Haram?
I thought the male voice and the drum beat were Halal?
A: 
All-Praises be to Allah,
Rapping as they call it is permissible so long as it does not have any musical instrumental background in it...
As for the Duff it is permissible for women in some occasions & is Haram for men.
Shaykh Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) made allowances for certain types of musical instruments at weddings and the like, and he made allowances for women to play the daff at weddings and on other joyful occasions. But the men at his time did not play the daff or clap with their hands. It was narrated in al-Saheeh that he said: "Clapping is for women and tasbeeh (saying Subhaan Allah) is for men." And he cursed women who imitate men and men who imitate women.
Because singing and playing the daff are things that women do, the Salaf (men of the far past) used to call any man who did that a mukhannath (effeminate man), and they used to call male singers effeminate - and how many of them there are nowadays! It is well known that the Salaf said this.
And Allah knows best....
