Hip-Hop beginnings in the 1970’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 1970s. It did not grow its internship until the 1980s 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 1970s 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.
