Task 4B Hip Hop genre

  1. 1. Task 4B Abdallah Hassen
  2. 2. HIP HOP History  Hip-hop originated from African-Americans It was created in the 1970’s Hip-hops culture is characterized by the four elements of rapping, DJing, breaking and graffiti writing. It first emerged with Kool Herc and contemporary disc jockeys and imitators creating rhythmic beats by looping breaks. It was later accompanied by ‘rap’ which is a rhythmic style of poetry presented in a 16-bar time frame and beat boxing. At its best hip hop has provided an escape from poverty while giving a voice to oppressed and "poverty-stricken" people worldwide, particularly in inner cities and neighbourhoods suffering from urban blight, and showcased their artistic ingenuity and talent on a global scale. At its worst hip hop has mirrored the worst aspects of the mainstream (American) culture that it emerged from: materialism, sexism, an internalized racism, violence, and antipathy towards intellectualism.
  3. 3. Example of a Hip Hop Artist  Marshall Bruce Mathers III (born October 17, 1972),[2] better known by his stage name Eminem often stylised as EMINƎM he is also known by his alter ego Slim Shady, is an American rapper, record producer, songwriter, and actor. In addition to his solo career, Eminem is a member of his group D12, as well as one half of the hip hop duo Bad Meets Evil, alongside Royce da 5'9". Eminem is one of the world's best-selling music artists and is the best-selling artist of the 2000s. He has been listed and ranked as one of the greatest artists of all time by many magazines, including Rolling Stone magazine which ranked him 82nd on its list of The 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. The same magazine declared him The King of Hip Hop.
  4. 4. Similar Sub Genres  Rap rock-Rap rock is a cross-genre fusing vocal and instrumental elements of hip hop with various forms of rock. Rap rock's most popular subgenres include rap metal and rapcore, which include heavy metal-oriented and hardcore punk-oriented influences, respectively. One of the earliest examples would be The Clash's song "The Magnificent Seven" which fused new wave, hip hop and funk.  Bounce Music- As hip-hop started to spread outward from its birth in the Bronx, one of the new localities that embraced and advanced the genre was New Orleans. Local producers and record label owners with past success in other black genre’s tried their hand in hip-hop, but soon a new generation got involved. Kevin “MC T. Tucker” Ventry, one of the first Bounce artists, captured the attention of the city in 1991 with his style of rap “defined by a preference for chanted refrains…and the use of several core samples to form the backing music,” two characteristics which came to signify Bounce music. The sub-genre flourished in the city without much national recognition, but soon New Orleans’ artists would take over the country.  Political Hip Hop-Political hip hop (also political rap) is a sub-genre of hip hop music that developed in the 1980s. Inspired by 1970s political preachers such as The Last Poets and Gil Scott-Heron, Public Enemy were the first political hip hop group. Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five released the first socio-political rap song in 1982, called "The Message", which inspired numerous rappers to address social and political subjects.
  5. 5. Imagery of Hip Hop  Most people are attracted to rap / hip-hop music initially because of the music, not the words and images associated with it.  The problem with rap / hip-hop isn’t really the music. Music is a good thing. Rap / hip-hop music, rock music, soul music, jazz, classical… It’s all good.  The problem is the words and images that are woven into them. And in the case of rap / hip-hop we all are quite aware of what those words and images are: glorification of criminal behaviour, promiscuity, drugs, sex, money, cars and guns.  When it comes to the artists themselves they tend to wear plain stuff such as a baggy jeans and a white T-shirt which just reflects where they come from. In other words they try to represent their hometown through the cloth they wear.
  6. 6. Hip Hop artists that may feature in my music magazine 50Cent Jay-Z All of these hip hop Joe artists have been Budden in the game for a long time. This is important because the target audience will spot the artist on the front cover and will Omarion automatically be attracted to the magazine.
