A style of Hip Hop which eschews many of the genre's conventions, abstract hip-hop has become a fixture of the underground hip-hop scene in the 2000s. Lyrically, artists tend to focus on more abstract ideas such as existentialism or social institutions rather than everyday problems or braggadocio. The language and presentation of these lyrics also tends to avoid the more upfront, visceral language of typical Hip Hop, instead preferring extensive metaphors and symbolic word choice.

Musically, most abstract artists feature unconventional beats that musically are considered also Experimental Hip Hop, but Abstract Hip Hop is a genre classification based on lyrical content and not a musical style.
