A rapper is about being completely true to yourself. Being an actor is about changing who you are

Not only do you need natural talent, but you need to practice and practice and practice to get it to the level of some of the best. It takes plenty of talent, and that is proven because so few people can do it well. Not to mention, writing the song takes plenty of talent as well.

It does not take as much talent as singing.

Any one can say words to a computerized beat. A redneck from Alabama with a few tries could successfully rap. Speed raping and raping on the spot does take some talent the latter takes more.

Some rap songs such as Lose Yourself by Eminem are geniusly written, no ordinary person could write lyrics that rhyme and flow so perfectly and make sense. It also requires talent to speak very fast without stuttering or messing up, which many rap artists do. I do agree, however, that some rap songs could have been written and performed by just about any one and require no special talent.

You don't need to know how to sing or play an instrument so it does not require any musical talent. If it reflects no musical talent, why do people call it music?
