Hip Hop

Hip Hop is described as being an umbrella term for a wide range of music such as: rap, grafiti, break dancing, Dj-ing, using turntables with vinyls, and MC-ing. Hip Hop draws a lot of elements back from previous black generes, specifically from rhythm and blues, funk, and techno. There are a variety of different types of rap, class ic , hardcore, pop, and alternative are a few. Rap refers to usually a MC who “recites rhymed verses over an accompianant created by a DJ or pre-recorded tracks.”, according to Dawn M. Norfleet, phD in Music. 

Reflection

This is definitely one of my favorite post to create. Hip hip is one of the biggest- no- the biggest genre of music today. It’s awesome to talk about people still relevant to this day, and to listen to music still relevant. 

Fun fact: Summer of 2018, I was working at Magic Mountain in Southern California, and T. Taylor walks into the food court as we are closing and she asks for a slushie. The machine was off so I told her that it wasn’t available, she gets mad walks away and flips me off.
