Task 6

  1. 1. Hip-Hop History  Hip-hop music is a form of music expression which originated from African-American communities during the 1970’s. Hip hop was born in the West Bronx and then became well known in New York City. When hip-hop music began to become popular it was mostly African American and other black youths from the Caribbean who were interested in this genre during the 1980s.  Hip hop music itself is known to be associated to MC’ing, DJ’ing, breaking, graffiti writing and other elements which include beatboxing. This has been the same since the early 1970’s and can still be seen in Hip Hop music today. Hip hop artists in 1970’s such as ________________ are now comparable to artists of todays era such as Jay-Z, Drake and Kanye West.
  2. 2. Hip Hop Artists  During this era, Hip-Hop is a well known and highly popular genre of music. Artists of the hip hop genre are seen to be high in the charts and known by many music fans. Following back from my examples in the earlier slide, Jay-Z and Kanye West are well known in in todays media society and can be seen on not only music videos but TV programmes including interviews etc. Both these artists are Black-Americans who have been highly successful in many countries across the world. Jay-Z and Kanye West appeal to wide target audience from teenagers to middle aged male and females. The music of which both these artists produce are rap songs which may feature another artist of the same of different genres. Yet, these artists do not only appeal to the audience through their song genres but through the use of clothing, make-up and mise-en- scene which can be seen in music videos or appearances. All these things are likely to be relatable to the audience themselves. An example of this can be seen on my Blogger which includes both artists in a music Video. JAY Z, Kanye West - Otis ft. Otis Redding
