  4. 4. Brief history of the origin of hip - hop <ul><li>The hip-hop emerged in the United States, in the 70s, blacks in the suburbs of New York (Bronx, Harlem, Brooklyn). These suburbs, real ghettos, faced all kinds of problems: poverty, violence, racism, trafficking, lack of infrastructure, education and so on. Young people in the street were the only area of leisure, and often hinder a system of gangs (and forming part of any of the gangs, and from outside, but always knowing the territories and the rules imposed by them), which is facing the a violent struggle in the field area. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>In this context different artistic manifestations of street came up: music, dance, poetry, painting. </li></ul><ul><li>The DJ Afrika´s Joad, Kool records and Grand Master Flash, among others, observed and participated in these street expressions, and began to organize festivals in which these events took place. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>On November 12, 1973 was established the Zulu Nation whose main headquarters was located in the neighbornhood of the Bronx. The Zulu Nation is a NGO that aims to stop the various problems of young people of suburbs (though then acquired universal charater), especially with the problem of violence. They started organizing “battles” between not-violent gangs with a peacermaker goal. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>The battles were an artistic competition. </li></ul><ul><li>To illustrate the hip-hop atmosphere and movement in America in the 80s, I recommend the movie Wild Style, directed by Charlie Ahearn, in which figures of large and vital importance appear in the construction of the movement, as DJ Grand Master Flash. Thus the hip-hop was born. </li></ul>
