Hip Hop Culture

Transcript: Breaking, also called B-boying or breakdancing, is a dynamic style of dance which developed as part of the hip hop culture. Breaking is one of the major elements of hip hop culture. Like many aspects of hip hop culture, breakdance borrows heavily from many cultures, including 1930s-era street dancing,[84][85] Afro-Brazilian and Asian Martial arts, Russian folk dance,[86] and the dance moves of James Brown, Michael Jackson, and California Funk styles. Breaking took form in the South Bronx in the 1970's alongside the other elements of hip hop. The relationship between graffiti and hip hop culture arises both from early graffiti artists engaging in other aspects of hip hop culture, Graffiti is understood as a visual expression of rap music, just as breaking is viewed as a physical expression. The 1983 film Wild Style is widely regarded as the first hip hop motion picture, which featured prominent figures within the New York graffiti scene during the said period. Rapping (also known as emceeing, MCing,spitting (bars),or just rhyming refers to "spoken or chanted rhyming lyrics with a strong rhythmic accompaniment". It can be broken down into different components, such as “content”, “flow” (rhythm and rhyme), and “delivery”. Rapping is distinct from spoken word poetry in that is it performed in time to the beat of the music. DJing Turntablism is the technique of manipulating sounds and creating music using phonograph turntables and a DJ mixer. One of the first few hip hop DJs was Kool DJ Herc, who created hip hop through the isolation of "breaks" (the parts of albums that focused solely on the beat). In addition to developing Herc's techniques, DJs Grandmaster Flowers, Grandmaster Flash, Grand Wizard Theodore, and Grandmaster Caz made further innovations with the introduction of scratching. Hip Hop Culture Beatbox Beatboxing, popularized by Doug E. Fresh,[87] is the technique of vocal percussion. It is primarily concerned with the art of creating beats or rhythms using the human mouth.[88] The term beatboxing is derived from the mimicry of the first generation of drum machines, then known as beatboxes. As it is a way of creating hip hop music, it can be categorized under the production element of hip hop, though it does sometimes include a type of rapping intersected with the human-created beat.

Transcript: Other Facts : Notorious B.I.G These are a select few of artists that do hip hop music as well as rap Tupac Shakur Also known as Biggie Smalls real name Christopher Wallace was a very special individual when it came to rap, he had a certain style about himself that no one could compete with. Over the years B.I.G. sold many albums and won awards for his work. Unfortunately on March 9, 1997 B.I.G was killed in a drive by shooting while he was in a car at a red stop light. The killer has yet to be identified. How Hip Hop Emerged Arguably one of the best rap musicians the industry has ever seen, him and Notorious B.I.G of course. Tupac Shakur was also well known for his work and people really appreciated how he spoke about poverty in the less fortunate neighborhoods, and corrupt people. The hip hop culture took a serious blow aagain when Tupac died September 13, 1996, seven days after he was shot on the Las Vegas Strip after a Mike Tyson fight. Tupac has been rumored over the years that he faked his death, claiming to follow this guy named Niccolo Machiavelli. (Look it up if you want to) Hip-Hop emerged in the 1970’s upon the arrival of a one Kool DJ Herc. Kool DJ Herc migrated to the United States from Kingston, Jamaica and settled in the West Bronx of New York. Kool DJ Herc was a disc jockey that attempted to incorporate his Jamaica style of disc jockeying, which involved reciting improvised rhymes over reggae records. Unfortunately for Kool DJ Herc New York seemed uninterested in reggae at that time. This forced Kool DJ Herc to find another appealing sound in order to please his audiences, which he did. Kool DJ Herc adapted a new style, which involved him by chanting over the instrumental or percussion sections of the popular music of the day. Being a musician in the hip hop business can be risky but it pays a lot. I would kill to be a famous musician. People think it is all about shooting and degrading women but it's not like that. These musicians tell stories and they explain to you how the world can be. Appreciate them because it takes practice. Hip hop music, also called hip-hop, rap music or hip-hop music, is a music genre consisting 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, break dancing, .Other elements include sampling, and beatboxing. While often used to refer to rapping, "hip hop" more properly denotes the practice of the entire culture.The term hip hop music is sometimes used with the term rap music, though rapping is not a required component of hip hop music; the genre may also incorporate other elements of hip hop culture, including DJing and scratching, beatboxing, and instrumental tracks. Also known as Biggie Smalls real name Christopher Wallace was a very special individual when it came to rap, he had a certain style about himself that no one could compete with. Over the years B.I.G. sold many albums and won awards for his work. Unfortunately on March 9, 1997 B.I.G was killed in a drive by shooting while he was in a car at a red stop light.
