Another rapper, Dr. Dre, released his album, "The Chronic," in 1992 and helped establish West Coast gangsta rap as more commercially viable than East Coast hip hop. The style of his album founded a style known as "G Funk," which soon came to dominate West Coast hip hop. This style was even more popularized by Snoop Dogg's album "Doggy style" which came out in 1993. The midwest rap scene was flourishing with the fast vocal styles from artists such as Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Tech N9ne, and Twista. By the end of the decade, hip hop was an integral part of popular music.
In the 20’s this music was Jazz. In the 80’s America saw the same urban African American culture embrace the hip hop movement. Similar in many respects with their secular themes, improvisation, polyrhythm, and use of call-and-response, hip hop became the new way to express the struggles while carrying on the tradition style of African American music. One of the most visible examples of hip hop’s roots in jazz is the basis of the art form, the beat. Hip hop originated when New York DJ’s began isolating the percussion breaks on funk and rock records.
The first blockbuster gangster rap album was N.W.A's Straight Outta Compton, released in 1988. Gangster rap has become popular among youths who like the violent and aggressive lyrics. Because of these features, Hip Hop music has been despised upon and referred to as a negative influence on modern society’s youth and adolescents. Hip Hop today is growing all over the world. Hip Hop is at its highest-standing point now and then where it ever was.
It’s actually a form of expression that is rooted deep within ancient African culture and oral tradition. Here in America there has always been a form of verbal acrobatics within the African American community. Hip Hop is the culture from which rap emerged. The hip hop culture consisted of Grafitti Art, Break Dancing, Djing and Emceeing ( now known as rap). B. Rap originated in The Bronx, NY in the
Rap music is a genre of rhythm and blues music that consists of rhythmic vocals asserted over musical accompaniment. Music on early rap records sounded like the black music of the day, which was heavy funk or more than often disco music. Music has been around for centuries but probably the music that has the greatest influence on me has to be the rap/hip-hop industry. Unfortunately, rap music is not perceived by many people, young or old, as an art form, but as a fad that they hope will soon “fade away.” Hip hop has historically provided a voice for the silenced minorities and these roots have allowed for its rhythmic flows to transgress many nations’ borders, providing a global musical outlet for the disregarded. Rap’s early stars, from Grandmaster Flash to Public Enemy and LL Cool J, touched on humour, politics, ghetto life and realities they faced.
Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, and Elvis Pressley introduced this Genre. Classic Rock evolved in the United States and stemmed from a combination of various music genres. Those music genres that Rock stemmed from were blues, African-American genres, jump blues, jazz, and gospel music. Elvis Pressley who is an inspiring rock artist added his own twist to rock music by adding a fast paced upbeat sound and gave rock music life. Hip Hop was formed in the early 1970’s.
Hip hop emerged in the 1970s on the streets of South Bronx. Powered by DJs such as Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash, and Afrika Bambaataa, the new genre became popular throughout the city's neighborhoods. The New York City area remained the forefront for rap music throughout the mid-80's, becoming home to numerous stars like Run-DMC, LL Cool J, KRS-One, Dougie Fresh, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Biz Markie, Slick Rick, Salt-n-Pepa and others. In the early 1990s hip hop functioned to give the black community a voice in the public sphere.  Hip hop gained appeal within the black community because of the authentic and relatable nature of the lyrical content.
 A few black rhythm and blues musicians, notably Louis Jordan, the Mills Brothers, and The Ink Spots, achieved crossover success; in some cases (such as Jordan's "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie") this success was achieved with songs written by white songwriters.  The Western swing genre in the 1930s, generally played by white musicians, also drew heavily on the blues and in turn directly influenced rockabilly and rock and roll, as can be heard, for example, on Elvis Presley's "Jailhouse Rock" (1957).  Going back even further, rock and roll can trace one lineage to the old Five Points, Manhattan district of mid-19th century New York City, the scene of the first fusion of heavily
The word "rap" was derived in the sixties, from a slang word that meant conversation. Hip-hop has two main historical eras, the old school hip-hop era from 1970-1985 and the golden age hip-hop era from 1985-1993. The golden age of hip-hop began only when it entered the mainstream of music and it consolidated the sounds of the West Coast and the East Coast. The origin of hip-hop music is from African American and West African music. Contributions of griots like The Last Poets, Jalal Mansur Nurriddin, and Gil Scott-Heron were significant in a big way for the advent of hip-hop in
Social and economic class being at the heart of the Motown enterprise from the inception of the company through the mid-1980s, is vivid through their upbringing of the lower-income African American people, their devotion to making music the younger social class, and their The Motown enterprise aimed to please the African American people who were at the bottom of the social and economic class. Motown associated their music with the black struggle by being the first record label ever owned by an African-American. It became a vehicle of black pride and self-expression. During Motown’s beginning period, their strength was their accessibility to the black community (41). Many black people were seeking new ways to make money because they were sick and tired of being employed by Ford Motors where there was little pay.
