Help (Hip-hop/rap guitar?)

My dads friend is a signed rap artists, and he heard me play and he wants me to come to the studio with him. Does anybody know how to play guitar in a hip hop rap style (if possible). if so give me some example tabs so i can throw down some beats.
P.S. i dont have much taste for Rap (so i dont know much about it, like there is much to know...) and i need some good examples. Pllzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Listen to the Run Dmc/Aerosmith Version of "Walk This Way". It is the easiest way to get a feel. "Bring the Noise" remake with Public Enemy/Anthrax. I also Reccomend "The Judgement Night" Soundtrack. House of Pain/Helmet have a bad ass song on there.

listen to what people have done before like aerosmith, but don't ruin more classic songs like some rappers have done with crazy train and back in black.

Answer me 1 question,
how many rap songs do you hear with guitars in them?
I'm not talking about remixes, crossovers, rap metal.
Answer me that, and everythign will be sorted.

I'm listenin to some 2Pac right now, no guitar, Fugees, nada.

he heard u play right??
im sure he couldnt give a rats ass about another funk player. he wants a guy in there is gonna play some good rock riffs something he can lay into a track. they are always biting off old rock songs. it makes it a familiar and still new, that = #1 hit.

just play well, trying to learn a style now could just mess up ur playing.

unless ur going to get a sh%tload of money for this, dont do it. its a disgrace to all REAL guitarist...no....REAL musicians on this planet. rap is the lowest form of music you can get into...dont do it unless you are going to gain something that's worth more than a musician's pride (like lots of money or raising money for cancer research or something).

Crapo! i just wrote an awesome response to it then accidently deleted it!
Alright: you should know a bit a about hip hops origins, if not its derived from funk. funk of course is derived from blues, bits of reggae etc. its all in the mix. basically you can play anything ina hip hop song- evena bit of metal solos. its pretty much freestyle. however some guidlines- i wouldnt go in there playing classical guitar on a nylon string and also dont rip off other peoples riffs, theres a whole bunch of copyright around this and i dont know if thats what your uncle (was it your uncle i forgot) really wants.
SO heres my plan: write a riff. just a simple riff, based aroun twelve bar blues that is go from E to A to E then B A E. if oyu dont know your blues look it up on this site, theyll telly ou how to play twelve bar blues. anyway so when youve constructed the riff, mess around with the way you play it. play it faster and staccato- style, it will be a bit funkier if you play it more percussivley. most guitar we play is fluid but hip hop and funk is a bit more percussive. listen to BodyCOunt which is Ice T's band. they did a cover of Hey Joe which is awesome(to all you purists its not rap)
listen to stuff by the neptunes as well. try and get some hip hop beat smaples to play along to. oh another thing muted chords with distortion and wah(Edit: i forgot the wah bit the first time round) are pretty useful for hip hop as they add texture and give it a good rhtyme.
MOST IMPORTANTLY: practise your rhythm: keep in time. hip hop is not a genre you listen to alot by the sounds of it so you might not be used to the beats and such. just practise playing along, and practise your solos

hope that was helpful. if not... meh i tried.
and anyone who disagrees feel free to correct me
