Top 54 Rap Songs for Weddings
These are the Best Rap Songs for Weddings to get people on the dance floor! Rap style of music is created from African music. For all intensive purposes rap music can be intertwined as hip-hop music. Rapping is a vocal style in which the vocalist speaks lyrically, in rhyme and verse. The creation of hip-hop has been accredited to Keith Cowboy of the music group Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five.
Hip-hop beginnings in the 70’s entail block parties in New York City in which DJs would isolate percussion breaks of popular songs. Turntable techniques, playing records, beat mixing/matching, and beat juggling eventually developed along with the breaks, creating a base that could be rapped over. Hip-hop was predominantly popular in New York City in the 70’s. It did not grow its internship until the 80s with new styles of hip-hop.
There are many claims on the first hip hop recording. However, our favorite is to be The Sugarhill Gang’s Rapper’s Delight from 1979. The lyrical content of hip hop evolved from the 70’s to metaphorical lyrics over more complex, multi-layered instrumentals. Artists such as Chuck D and KRS-ONE revolutionized hip-hop by transforming it into a more mature art form. Hip hop from the 80’s and into the new decade formed into many genres including east coast and west coast hip hop, gangsta rap, new school hip hop, world and crunk.
