Hip Hop is music that uses rap as a central part of its style. Hip Hop began in the 1970's in African-American areas of urban America. In rapping, a singer or group speaks or chants rhyming lyrics over a beat. The lyrics, especially in Gangsta and Hardcore rap, have urban themes often about gangs, violence and drugs. There is a rivalry between West Coast and East Coast rap based on allegiance to certain record labels.
Do you like your Hip Hop Old-School-simple and socially conscious; energetic New Orleans Bounce; Dirty South; Latin, mainstream or Underground? Perhaps you like to blur the lines with all kinds of other genres and Alternative Hip Hop's your thing. Hip Hop sometimes gets a bad rap, but there are some highly skilled artists out there with a lot to say-the fastest rapper is Ricky Brown who can rap 723 syllables in 51. 27 seconds!
