Transcript: Hip-hop was not created by African American culture; it was created by African American people who had creativity and choice as to how to proceed. GrandWizzard Theodore was not forced by his oppressive environment to invent scratching in the 1970s; it was a technique he discovered by accident, liked, and chose to incorporate. His sociocultural environment nurtured and embraced his innovation. It did not create it. There's also a great deal of class determinism in scholarly discourse of hip-hop. Although graffiti writing and emceeing may be products of economic adversity, deejaying and producing are not. They require financial investment. David Toop, one of the first authors of academic discourse on hip-hop, marvels that "original music" could be created from the "limited materials" of "turntables, a mixer and records." Digital Sampling - Sampling allows the musician to record sounds from other instruments, nature, or even non musical sources, and transpose and play them chromatically on a standard piano or organ keyboard. This new and emerging technology greatly expands the creative horizons of the modern composer. 1:11 How did you decide to study hip-hop? "It kind of happened very naturally. I’m not somebody who’s listened to a ton of hip-hop; I was much more of a jazz guy.... In some ways, rap has replaced or assumed a lot of the same sociological functions to urban youth. There are a lot of interesting musical parallels between hip-hop and jazz: the rhythmic emphasis, the improvisation, the fact that the musicians are often formally untrained yet they’re incredible. The more I started thinking about jazz and the brain, rap seemed like a natural transition.." PRINCE PAUL: "You know, everybody went to a school that had a band. You could take an instrument if you wanted to. Courtesy of your public school. But, man, you playing the clarinet isn't gonna be like BAM! KAH! Ba-BOOM-BOOM KAH! It wasn't cats sittin' around like, "Man. Times are hard, man... Man, I gotta--I gotta--do some hip-hip! I gotta get me a turntable!" HIP HOP AND JAZZ "In his TEDTalk (watch now), Charles Limb reviews his groundbreaking work studying creativity and the brain — by putting musicians inside an fMRI and watching as they improvise. For the past decade, he’s been working with jazz piano players, revealing astonishing new data about the way the brain creates art. And his research has recently branched into a new genre: hip-hop. He spoke to the TED Blog about his new study, and about his day job … " DJ KOOL AKIEM: "They were too poor to get instruments." Yeah right. Then somebody came a long with a hundred dollar sampler. Man, producing takes more money than playin' a instrument. I mean deejaying, if you're serious, you're gonna have to spend a thousand dollars on your equipment. But then every record's ten bucks. Then you got speakers. Obviously, [the academics] just don't think about it it. The most important thing to them is, "Oh, the kids are poor." HIP HOP

Transcript: The History of Hip Hop Where it Began The South Bronx 1970's White Flight Urban Decay Poverty Local Government Corruption White Flight Synopsis Simultaneous with the “white flight,” social and economic disruptions abounded. Construction on the Cross Bronx Expressway, which began in the postwar period and continued into the early 1970s, decimated several of the minority neighborhoods in its path. City infrastructure was allowed to crumble in the wake of budget cuts, hitting the less privileged parts of the city most directly. Strikes organized by disaffected blue-collar workers crippled the entire metropolitan area. As a largely white, middle-class population left urban areas for the suburbs in the 1950's and 1960's—a phenomenon known as “white flight”—the demographics of communities such as the Bronx shifted rapidly. The Bronx, one of New York City’s five “boroughs,” became populated mainly by Blacks and Hispanics, including large immigrant populations from Caribbean nations including Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad, and Tobago, and others. Groups Turning Point Turning Point Music Culture Dance Music Music Latin and Caribbean traditions met and mingled with the sounds of sixties and seventies Soul, Disco, and Funk. Limited access to instruments and music education, music makers made music with what they could find. DJs assembled their own sound systems and built extensive record collections by searching secondhand stores for old Soul, Funk, and Rock and Roll albums; they used their collections to provide entertainment within their communities. Sounds taken from these records—from James Brown’s drum breaks to Parliament Funkadelic’s funky bass lines—provided the raw materials for creative work: beats to be mixed and modified. B-Boy and B-Girl Break Dance Dance Breakdancing is thought to be inspired by the performances of James Brown. DJs would take the breaks of dance records and string them together to give dancers a chance to show off their moves. Breakers would choose elements from sports and other dances, including gymnastics, the Lindy Hop, capoeira, and disco. Timeline Timeline 1974 1970 1976 1975 Other DJ's start playing in similar styles. DJ Pleaser Lovebug Starski first refers to this movement as “hip-hop.” Hip Hop First Appears in the Bronx DJ Afrika Bambaataa battles Disco King Mario in the first DJ battle. 1973 1978 DJ Grand Wizard Theodore invents the record scratch.
