Transcript: One thing that is a common misconception is that rap music and hip-hop music are the same. Rap music use to have very prominent elements to it, the actual rapping, and freestyle but most elements are not as recognized today which is why there is much confusion between the two styles. Rap music is more based on rhyming and lyrics, the lyrics tend to be more serious, about serious topics. While hip-hop, can be more swinging or slow, or fast, hip-hop is a more wide spread genre than rap. But never the less rap and hip hop are without a doubt very similar, even with their differences, so much so that almost 3 genres are made, rap, hip-hop, and a rap hip hop mix which nowadays is most common Hip hop music would be played a lot of the times at block parties. Which were like regular parties only the people attending were mainly from the same neighborhood. Dj's would play soul music or funk music, but would "remix" them. Twisting them around mixing them up, and due to positive reception, that's where hip-hop got its start. This was going on mainly in the African and Hispanic communities in the Bronx. A man who's stage name was DJ Kool Herc is credited for giving hip-hop a name in music, after playing his first block party, he got instantly hired at a club Modern rap, is not as pure as it was. Nowadays you cant hear a rap or hip hop song on the radio without some pop singer in the chorus, producers make them that way whether the artists like it or not because it does sell. examples of songs like these are: The Monster *Eminem ft Rihanna Timber *Pitbull ft Ke$ha* No Faith in Brooklyn *Hoodie Allen ft Jhameel* Hip-Hop Music By Nina Smith

An East Coast-West Coast feud developed, pitting Death Row Records, which is based in southern California, against New York’s Bad Boy Entertainment. The feud eventually escalated from a battle of words to a bloody war. Its two most prominent casualties were the rival rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.

Style: Can’t Touch This by: M.C Hammer is also a hip hop song but more specifically from the popular hip-hop genre of Hip-Hop West Coast. This music was released in 1990 with his album, “Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt Them”. Instruments Used:There were only two instruments used in this music and they are drums and a keyboard and also synthesizers, which are used in many modern hip-hop music pieces. Melody: The melody of this song is high during the duration of the song. The melody of the song is quite exciting and heart pumping, that is why I believe this is M.C Hammer’s most popular song. Dynamics:The dynamics of this song is pretty consistent throughout and it is loud, the dynamics create the hype and excitement that hip-hop songs are known for.

This usually happens after the chorus of “You Can’t Touch This” when the tempo slows down. Articulation:The articulation of the notes of the song that are being played on the limited instruments are soft because they didn’t emphasize the instruments, but more on the rapping that M.C Hammer was articulating.

Transcript: music hip hop third video Hip hop is a broad conglomerate of artistic forms that originated within a marginalized subculture in the South Bronx and Harlem in New York City among black and Latino youth during the 1970s. It is characterized by four distinct elements, all of which represent the different manifestations of the culture: rap music (oral), turntablism or "DJing" (aural), breaking (physical) and graffiti art (visual). Despite their contrasting methods of execution, they find unity in their common association to the poverty and violence underlying the historical context that birthed the culture. It was as a means of providing a reactionary outlet from such urban hardship that "hip hop" initially functioned, a form of self-expression that could reflect upon, proclaim an alternative to, try to challenge or merely evoke the mood of the circumstances of such an environment. Even while it continues in contemporary history to develop globally in a flourishing myriad of diverse styles, these foundational elements provide stability and coherence to the culture. The term is frequently used mistakenly to refer in a confining fashion to the mere practice of rap music. music picture fourth fun facts about hip hop. another video video
