Hip Hip Hop It Don't Stop

The genre of Hip Hop started in 1970s, in the Bronx, New York, with a man named Clive Campbell aka DJ Kool Herc. Campbell was DJ but also an immigrant from Jamaica. He started to incorporate beats from Jamaica into his DJ sets at the inner city parties. Hip Hop started as a product of Disco and Funk. Transitioning into the 1990s and 2000s, hip gained all its popularity and artists like Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G., and NWA started to make songs about the real life injustices and hardships that black people were facing, ultimately creating a safe space within music and bringing the black community together.
