The History of Rap
Transcript of The History of Rap
Hip Hop and rapping started
at parties in New York in the 1980's and they were run by DJs or MCs. MC is short for Master of Ceremonies.
MCs created a beat and the crowd always got fired up. Some famous MCs were Kool
Herc, Afrika Bambataa, and Grandmaster Flash.
The B in B-boy or B-girl stands for breakdance. Break dancers would dance at parties to a rap. They would spin on their heads to get a reaction from the crowd. Some famous
breakdancing groups are the Jabbawockeez and the Rock Steady Crew.
People started to rhyme to a beat at the parties and that was called rapping. Some people would record their rap and people that did that were called rappers. Some rappers are NWA, Eminem, Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G. , and Missy Elliott.
Rapping has changed and Run DMC's cooperation with Aerosmith helped with that. Since Aerosmith was mainstream it really helped to get rapping into the modern day culture. Some modern day rappers are Fetty Wap, Iggy Azalea, and Macklemore. These rappers are popular now and all over the USA. They are even popular in other countries.
Eminem is my favorite rap artist. Eminem had a really rough life. He lived with his mom in a trailer park and they were really poor. The only way he could make money was by competing in rap battles. One day a rapper named Dr. Dre noticed his rapping and helped him to produce songs. He moved on to win awards for his songs The Real Slim Shady and Lose Yourself. He is now considered the "King of Rap".
