The Evolution of Rap Music
What is rap music?
What does it sound like?
When Was It Invented
Rap Music became its own genre of music around the late 1970s and early 1980s. But Rap was born long before that. In the 1600s Africian American people would tell stories to a beat of a drum around camp fires. This form of story telling is know as the very first form of rap music
Where Was Rap Invented
Rap music was born in Africa But was given its name in the crime-ridden neighborhoods of the South Bronx.
Important People
There were about ten important people/bands involved in the start up of rap music. They all claim to be the originators. There names are Pete DJ Jones, Kool DJ Herc, DJ Hollywood, Eddie Cheeba, "Love Bug" Starski, Grand Master Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, Kurtis Blow, the Sugarhill Gang, Run DMC. The names fit together like pieces to a puzzle. And as we assemble the puzzle, we have to give equal props to all, because it is the individual contributions, pieced together, that explain the true history.
How Did Rap Change Over The Years

Each of those sub eras fit in to these four eras. Each era is differnt from the last and the next. The lyrics are differnt and the chore of the beats, and sounds are different. Not to mention the sterio typical part of rap.
