history of hip hop culture style
Hip-Hop is not Rap and Rappers are not HipHop
The history of hip hop culture style is deep and is not
sumed up by placing it within music. Most people reference rap songs when they think of hiphop but that is almost the
furthest thing from the truth.
Well it is more than music. You see that just a small part of a gigantic multi-bilion dollar well

Hip-Hop is made up of several different things and rappers are just one part of it. Along with
rap you have breakdancers, graffiti artist, Djs, clothing and urban film and now hip-hop models or honeys and
It doesn't matter of you are talking about the commercial part of it that has rappers in TV
ads and campaigns world wide or if you are speaking of the underground side of things that keep the streets locked

Deejaying help start it but rapping is now driving the wheels of this very fast sports car called
Hip Hop. A rap timeline is important to know also if you plan on really speaking to others about how powerful
hiphop is right now. You will then be able to explain what it is and project information literacy. Later you can
break it all down from old school to new school but that will take some serious reading and studying. I suspect

we are talikng about the roots of Hip-Hop here.
