First noticed in the Bronx, New York, during the mid-70s, hip hop singers were born from a cultural movement in large inner cities.
With its roots in disco and funk, this unusual combination of rapping and DJ-ing quickly catapulted hip hop music artists into the center of a new music and dance craze that is still going on today.
In time with heavy, defined rhythms, a hip hop singer would speak (rather than sing) the lyrics.

 Mixmaster Morris | Music I Like | Trip Hop | Mixmag - June 1994
Hip hop was out there on its own, a whole culture and musical genre best left to low riding Americans obsessed with guns and girls with big bottoms.
This is trip hop, a deft fusion of head-nodding beats, supa-phat bass and an obsessive attention to the kind of other-wordly sounds usually found on acid house records.
The result is hip hop untouched by the vagaries of West Coast rap fashion.

 British hip hop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
British hip hop, was originally influenced by the hip hop scene in New York City, at first being very much in awe of the American innovators, with British rappers often adopting American accents in the early years, before gaining the confidence to develop their own styles.
The growth of British hip hop was given a boost when in 2002, the BBC launched a digital radio station 1Xtra devoted to "new fl music" including hip hop, RnB, garage, dancehall and, drum and bass.
Hip hop in the UK never achieved the same kind of cultural impact, or levels of success as it did in the US, but US acts were all too prolific in the UK.

 Guardian | A quantum leap forward for British hip hop
Hip hop is an American genre, born out of the New York ghettos in the late 1970s.
On a more prosaic level, the handful of British rappers who made the charts simply weren't very good: UK hip hop is haunted by memories of embarrassing rappers such as Derek B. The victory of Ms Dynamite's debut album, A Little Deeper, at this year's Mercury music prize therefore is a success against the odds.
A Little Deeper may be the first occasion a British rapper has attempted to mimic the sound of an American hip hop artist and succeeded.

Although it is rarely heard outside of the U.K. and Europe, British Rap has its own traditions and is a style onto itself.
British rap began in the late '80s, and it used the sonic collage of Public Enemy as a launching pad.
The notable exception to that rule is jazz-rap, as European hip-hop acts were heavily influenced by England's acid house and acid jazz, and these ideas later spilled over to the hip-hop that was made in Europe.

 CD Baby: CD Baby: HIP-HOP/RAP music you will love.
While a lot of modern hip hop relies on hook heavy song construction that just ends up increasing the fluff, SD takes the high road and kicks lengthy verses that run circles around themselves, constantly coercing the listener to keep a finger poised near the rewind button.
While trends in hip hop continue to lean towards the use of multiple producers to fill an album, it has become a rare treat to hear a record that relies on one beatsmith.
With a voice that is tailor made for rapping as well as singing, she uses discretion when saturating the tracks, creeping in and out of the forefront while echoing the beats with vocal hits and jabs that are well placed and add a real density to the mix.

It is a celebration of hip hop’s unique visual culture, to inform, educate, provoke and entertain its audience.
Hip hop has always borrowed, magpie-like, from its cultural forebears – funk, jazz, blues and reggae; similarly, the Festival will throw into the mix films from different eras or musical traditions.
Much of today’s hip hop is hardly connected to its urban American roots, and the Festival will reflect the variety of the culture, searching to find the most surprising and interesting manifestations of the culture on this hip hop planet.

Perversely, however, as hip hop has expanded over the last 15 years to become the largest selling music form in the world, the representation of women within it is become far narrower.
It’s good to see, therefore, that the sands are gradually shifting, particularly in the UK where street music (an amalgam of electro, hip hop, drum’n’bass and garage, with rappers blasting out rhymes over the top) continues to emerge from the underground and crossover into the mainstream.
It's this fresh perspective and the voice of the unheard (one of hip hop’s founding tenets) that’s blowing a wind of change through rap.

During the mid-'80s, hip-hop began to emerge from countries beyond the United States, the first being the U.K. The same basic U.S. production techniques and philosophies were applied by early British rap acts Derek B. and the Cookie Crew.
Many British hip-hop artists also incorporated Jamaican-style vocals, resulting in a subgenre called ragamuffin, which is unique from American rap and reggae.
In many cases, though, the outstanding difference between U.K. rap and its U.S. cousin remains the dominating presence of the British dialect.

 Low-Life | UK Hip Hop Story | International | British Hip Hop in Lithuania - Mishkas
I recently got a message written to me from Vilnius, Lithuania, where two top dudes, Terry and his partner-in-crime, Mark Splinter, are currently organising events trying to get an internet radio show off the ground.
Whilst their intentions are to remain fairly eclectic and multi-genre, they also aim to feature a lot of UK-based Hip Hop and this could be a good opportunity for any up and coming acts to gain some valuable overseas exposure, and to make an early mark on an emerging Eastern European territory.
Splinter had DJ Vadim out to Lithuania to do a few shows a few months back, and the UK refugees are definitely looking to bring some more UK acts over, whether they are DJs, Beatboxers, MCs or full crews.
