“No rapper can rap quite like I can / I'll take a muscle-bound man and put his face in the sand / not the last Mafioso I'm a MC cop”, - In the words of infamous LL Cool J.

Hip Hop is a genre of music that combines emceeing and deejaying. As we think about the evolution of hip hop, it’s take us back to the raw thoughts, of tagging, break-dancing, beat boxing, graffiti, dress code etc,. Hip Hop is a lifestyle with a unique lingo. In the words of KRS- One, “hip hop is something you live, rap is something you do”. Hip hop is believed to have started in the Bronx by a DJ named Kool Herc. His style of deejaying involved reciting rhymes over instrumentals. Herc’s house parties became a phenomenon music spread through-out, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and other block party Dj’s helped spread the message of hip hop around town and gained tons of followers.
As we trace back to some of the earliest rap songs ever recorded, it includes, “King Tim III (Personality Jock ) by Fatback Band, and “Rapper’s Delight” by Sugar Hill Gang. The latter was the commercial break-through, to draw in commercial appeal.
