Hip-Hop/Rap Music Genres
Hip Hop is a sub-genre of funk, which is a sub-genre of rock. you lose. You're not going to win any music argument with me, trust me on that.

Hip Hop, R&B and Rap musical genres are closely associated with each other. Hip hop music takes its roots from Jamaican reggae and dancehall music that was quite popular in the late 1960s. It was mainly originated in Jamaica and was later spread to America and much later all over the world. The music became quite popular African Americans and Latinos. There are very few musical instruments used in order to create hip hop music. Most of the sound is synthetic which comes out of synthesizers, drum machines, turntables, samplers and many more such machines.

For the win!

So, you'd say there are no overtly racist words?

No.

When a defect in product A results in the death of 5,000 people, and a defect in product B results in the death of 100 people, most of society would say you should focus on product A. That doesn't mean product B should be ignored, but common sense says A should have much greater priority. Logic.

Now that we disrespect ourselves......whites think it should be alright for them to do it.....all over again.
It's mostly black culture that is interjecting it into mainstream. How do you explain to a teen that the N word is disrespectful when it's being blasted by music stars every day?

Rap in the 70s in no way resembled Dance Hall. This is OFTEN said because DJ Herc, who was from Jamaica (but lived in the Bronx) is often credited as the first hip hop DJ. There may have been some VERY early block parties that that had a dance hall theme, but much of the earliest known recordings of hip hop shows heavy funk samples. The part of rap that's considered "dance hall" are probably looping and "breaking". But much of the early samples were either funk or disco, to the point it's impossible to overlook the two genre influence in the genre. Anyone who will say that funk has no association with the creation of hip hop just don't know early hip hop.

Does make one wonder how white kids, born from white parents who listened to the Rolling Stones, Beatles, AC/DC and Led Zeppelin to name a few........found music in rap to be their music of choice.


What is worse when people refer to it as rock music. I find it silly whites listening this stuff that demeans women and cops, when you ask them what is being said, they can't tell you from a that BASS.


My kids had a moment of Korn, ICP and such groups, thank God they grew up!


Along with Korn's lead singer turning Christian.
Former Korn guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch talks to Beliefnet about leaving the rock star life after finding becoming a Christian. - Beliefnet

Rap "music"? No singing and no one playing instruments...strange definition of music.

I think that such is a conversation that parents should definitely have. I don't think the youth of any color have respect for history. For people over 45......white kids throwing N word in public around older folks can be very problematic.

Are the pirated rap cd's sold on 7/11 sidewalks and Obamaphone streamed listens accounted for in the figures?
