Part 1. Introduction of Hip Hop Music


In the 1970s, hip-hop music showed up. It has 4 main components: rapping, scratching with turntables, graffiti writing and break dancing. There are also other parts like sampling beats, synthesized beats and sounds and rhythmic beatboxing that also constitute this music genre.

Hip-hop started to diversify with Southern rap and Atlanta hip-hop in the 1990s. In the middle of the 90s, it sold like hot cakes. This popularity continued through the 2000s. However, its sales went down since 2005. Nearly the same period, alternative hip-hop artists, such as Kanye West, succeed to get a place in the mainstream.

In the 2010s, rappers like Drake, Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole have been super popular. The subgenre of hip-hop, Trap, rose with artists and groups.
