No, for my first 2 replies fallacy is the perfect word, however for the third you may be right.
My arguments directly refute yours.
Your argument: Rap isn't music, because X and Y
My reply: X and Y are not definitions of music
Your argument: Music requires musicians
My reply: Rappers are musicians
Your argument: They're are not musicians because Z and W
My reply: Z and W do not define a musician.

Yes, that is exactly what I'm saying.
You won't be good (although you might), but you will still be making art.
What you will be doing could range from artistic reading, to poetry, to music.
Art is the creation of something to aesthetically please yourself and/or others.

Well since you're finished, let's sum up our stuff.
I say that rap is art and also that anything that is aesthetically pleasing to the creator and/or other people is also art. Unless built with another specific purpose
EG: I think a ship of the line looks really beautiful, but none of it was intended to be beautiful, it's only a side effect of it being a powerful weapon.
You say that rap is not art, because most of it isn't created with the use of artistic talent(s).
Here's why I think I'm right: my system of classifying art encompasses all things created by man to be aesthetically pleasing After that we make the distinction of "high" art and "low" art, with "high" being fine tuned and generally hard to make (needs use of artistic talent, vocal/drawing/architectural skill). While "low" art would not require any sort of talent or skill to create, thus resulting, most of the time, in the low quality of the final product.
The system you propose works with talents and skills ONLY, while most skills are measurable to a degree, talents are not. This results in a classification by opinion. EG: I really like Van Gogh's paintings, they are art. I really hate Picasso's paintings, they are not art. Then, I could use a ridiculously huge amount of accusations to "prove" myself right, I could state that Picasso has no talent, and NOBODY would be able to prove me wrong. Because everyone has his own opinion on what falls into "talent" and what falls into "skill"
Your system works from opinions and thus are flawed from the start.
My system works with facts, and THEN applies public opinion to classify the arts within the broad term "art"
