Hip Hop Culture

Since hip-hop emerged from the South Bronx in the 1970s, it has become an international, multi-billion-dollar phenomenon. It has grown to encompass more than just rap music—hip-hop has created a culture that incorporates ethnicity, art, politics, fashion, technology and urban life.

Rap Music

rap music : noun
a style of popular music, developed by disc jockeys and urban blacks in the late 1970s, in which an insistent, recurring beat pattern provides the background and counterpoint for rapid, slangy, and often boastful rhyming patter glibly intoned by a vocalist or vocalists.

  1. Have you heard about “Derek Rapping-Dad Clark” ? It’s a rapper who became famous because he’s got four children and raps with them. He criticizes (in his songs) the fact that almost all rappers today use too many swear words and are very vulgar. I think he’s truly talented ! (he’s always freestyling)

    It’s quite difficult to understand ( I mean for me ) but there are some easy passages and we can understand the general message.

  2. I don’t know if you can open this link because it’s on Facebook. I’ve found this video talking about racism and I tought it would be a good idea to share it with you. It’s very inspiring. They compare our body to car we are driving and say that we can’t judge people on the car they drive, so why judge them on their color of skin. You should take a look !
