What is Hip Hop?

Hip hop, also spelled hip-hop or hiphop, is a rhythm-centered musical genre, originating in New York City in the 1970s. It consists of a stylized rhythmic music that commonly accompanies rapping, a rhythmic and rhyming speech that is chanted. It developed as part of hip hop culture, a subculture defined by four key stylistic elements: MCing/rapping, DJing/scratching with turntables, break dancing, and graffiti writing. Other elements include sampling (or synthesis), and beatboxing.

History of Hip Hop

The term ‘hip hop’ is used to describe a wide range of musical genres that have emerged from the African American community in the United States since the early 1970s. While there is no one single style of music that can be definitively labelled as ‘hip hop’, the genre is typically characterized by its use of rhythm and rhyme, often delivered in a rap style.

Hip hop music first emerged in the Bronx, New York City, in the 1970s. It was created by American-born black and Latino youths who were influenced by the Jamaican sound system parties they attended. These parties featured DJs who played music using turntables and loudspeakers, and MCs who rapped over the instrumental tracks.

Hip hop quickly spread beyond New York City, and by the 1980s it had become a global phenomenon, with artists such as Run-DMC, Public Enemy, and N.W.A gaining widespread popularity. In the 1990s and 2000s, hip hop continued to evolve, with artists such as Eminem, Jay-Z, and Missy Elliott pushing the genre in new directions. Today, hip hop is one of the most popular genres of music in the world, with artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Drake topping charts around the globe.
