The primary goal of this paper is the solution of the problem of translating the term real from English to Serbian when it is used in Hip-Hop culture. The paper describes the roadmap of the process of finding the adequate word in Serbian for the term ”real” – the term ”прави”. The secondary goal of this paper is the improvement of the communication among members of the Hip-Hop community by offering an argumented recommendation for the use of the term ”real”/”прави” in Rap music. The conditions for the usage of this term are given from both theoretical and historical perspectives, as well as the argument for the advantages of interpreting the term ”real”/”прави” as synonymous to the term ”hardcore” when used in reference to Rap music, lyrics and artists.
