The History of Rap and Hip Hop Music

origins of hip-hop can be traced back to ancient tribes in Africa. Rap is compared with the chants, drumbeats and foot stomping African tribes performed before the war, births and deaths of kings and elders. Historians have reached further back than the accepted origins of hip-hop. It was born as we know it today in the Bronx, cradled and nurtured by the youth in low-income area of ​​New York.

Fast-forward from the tribes of Africa ghetto Kingston, Jamaica in the late sixties godinama.Osiromašenih Kingston gathered together in groups to form DJ conglomerates. They spun roots and culture records and communicated with the audience through music. At that time, the DJ comments were not as important as the quality of the sound system and its ability to move crowds. Kool Herc grew up in this community before he moved to the Bronx.

During the late sixties, reggae was not popular in New York. As a DJ, Kool Herc spun rhythm and blues records to please his party crowd. But he had to add a personal touch. During the breaks, Herc began to speak to his audience as he learned to work in Jamaica. He called out, the audience responded, and then pump up the volume on record. This call and response technique was nothing new in this community who would be reared in Baptist and Methodist churches where call and response technique was used by the speaker to the community involved. Historians compare it with the call and response performed by Jazz musicians and was very much the culture of jazz music during the Harlem Renaissance.

Herc DJ style caught on. His party's grew in popularity. He began to buy multiple copies of the album. When he performed duties as a DJ, he extended the breaks by using multiple copies of the same records. He spoke, as he is known in the dance hall, with its audience longer and longer.

Another copy Herc style. Soon a friendly battle ensued between New York DJs. They all learned the technique of using break beats. Herc stepped up the game by giving shout-outs to people who were in participating in the party and comes with his signature call and response. Other DJs responded rhyming with their words when speaking audience. More and more DJs used two four-line rhymes and anecdotes to get their audiences involved and hyped at these parties.

One day, Herc passed the microphone over his two friends. He took care to turn the tables and allowed his friends to the crowd hyped with chants, rhymes and anecdotes, while the extended holidays of different songs indefinitely. This is the birth of rap as we know it.

Hip-hop has evolved from the days in the basement of the calculation for the great job in the music industry. In the seventies and eighties, the pioneers and innovators of rap record was the DJ. He was a man who used his turntable to create fresh sounds with old records. Then, he became the man who mixed these familiar breaks with synthesizers to produce completely new beats. Not much has changed in that aspect of hip-hop.Čovjek who creates the beat is still the heart of the trail. Now, we call it the manufacturer. Even though some DJs work as producers and DJs (many start out as DJs before they become producers), and today is the name of "DJ" does not carry the same connotative meaning it did in the eighties. Today's hip-hop producer performs the same tasks as a DJ and eighty.
