You may be free to record them, but once recorded they're copyrighted.

Rap does need a band.

Rapping is the rhythmic, rhyming speech part of rap music, AKA hip hop
music, but rap music has various accompaniment, especially percussion,
which can be beatboxing, record scratching, playing of samples,
synthesisers, etc., that constitutes a band, IMO, even if it's just a "DJ"
pushing buttons.

I'm not a rap fan but I've heard plenty that's not offensive. I don't have
the time or inclination to provide examples right now. Maybe later.
