ENC1101 American Hip-Hop VS. Japanese Hip-Hop American Hip-hop is a music genre consisting of a stylized rhythmic music that commonly accompanies rapping, a rhythmic and rhyming speech that is chanted. American Hip-Hop is also a subculture music that originated in African American communities during the 1970's in New York City, specifically within the Bronx. Hip-Hop can be characterized by the four elements of rapping, DJing, hip-hop dance, and graffiti. What is American and Japanese Hip-Hop? Japan was introduced to hip-hop in the fall of 1983 in the movie "Wild Style". Street musicians began to break dance in Yoyogi Park, including DJ Kush who has become a world-reowned DJ after arising from the Yoyogi Park Scene. In 1986 an all hip-hop club opened in Shibuya and hip-hop in Japan began to grow in the late 1980's and early 1990's. Since 2000 hiphop in Japan Has grown and diversified. American and Japanese hip-hop music both have meanings to every song that is played. Both music genres express their feelings and emotions about their selves because they feel that it is the only way that they can open up and express their selves. Most people think that the music that both genres write about is bad because of all the profanity language that is used in the music. But really, the profanity is used out of anger or depression. Both of the genres also have the same hip-hop symbol which is used in most dances. The Meaning of Hip-Hop Music The only difference about American and Japanese hip-hop is that they both speak a different language and write very different. When Japanese people began to associate it doesn't sound nothing similar to American English. The writing is the same. When Japanese people begin writing, to americans, its like they are drawing and to the japaneses when americans write, its like scribble scrabble to them. Differences
''Languages" Pictures and Videos Japanese Hip-Hop generally tends to be most directly influenced by old school hip-hop, taking from the era's catchy beats, dance culture, and overall fun and carefree nature and incorporating it into their music. Hip-Hop in Japan also stands as one of the most commercially viable mainstream music genres in Japan. Japanese hip hop is said to have begun when Hiroshi Fujiwara returned to Japan and started playing hip-hop records in the early 1980's. アメリカと日本のヒップホップとは何ですか?アメリカと日本のヒップホップとは何ですか?アメリカと日本のヒップホップとは何ですか?アメリカと日本のヒップホップとは何ですか? アメリカと日本のヒップホップとは何ですか?アメリカと日本のヒップホップとは何ですか?History of American and Japanese Hip-Hop That You Should Know In the 1970's an underground urban movement known as "hip-hop" began to develop in South Bronx area of New York City focusing on emceeing, break beats, and house parties.
