What do you know about Hip hop? 
I am orginally born and raised in NYC .
I remember a time we will forever respect. Respectfully the 80's and 90's ( I'm trying not to give my age away )

Do you know the elements of Hip hop?
If you don't here's the run down:

MCing, DJing, graffiti and breakdancing. Contains lifestyle trends such as clothing and slang. Also includes R&B and beatboxing.


I remember it was all about the word play
Addressing social matters such as wealth, drug use, promiscuity, poverty, luxury, politics and more.. Or just bragging on how dope you was..

Did you know:
In the early 1980s, Afrika Bambaataa and Soulsonic Force released an electro-funk track called “Planet Rock”, which used electronic sounds and synthesizers. These grew to become common elements of the genre. The music movement spread to minority populations through the US.

Look how successful Hiphop has become. Quite remarkable if you ask me.
I remember and respect it.

So before you question who's hot now or what beat sound better. Take a moment to reflect on where it all began.

School is in session... Peace
