Hip hop is a cultural movement that began among urban African Americans, Jamaicans and Latinos in the Bronx borough of New York City during the early 1970s, and has since been spread and adopted, around the world.
The various factors that influenced early hip hop are complex and numerous, and vary from the griots of Africa to the rock of America.
One of the many influences on the creation of contemporary hip hop music is the Jamaican style called dub, which arose as a sub-genre of Reggae in the 1960s.

 Jozi's Hip Hop revolution - SouthAfrica.info
And the CD comes with the trademark rap tag of "Parental Advisory, Explicit Lyrics", for the obvious reason that the hip hop artists featured on the disc spare no one, claim no easy victories and tell it like it is, South African style.
Markets are competitive, all hip hop role players agree, and the immediate rivalry issues from the kwaito genre.
It has been the story of hip hop everywhere, argues McCloy, that it is initially dismissed as unoriginal and as a result suffers lack of recognition, "but it has turned that wave and it's on to the next stage now, which is commercial".

HHC: Two years ago, you were advising our readers to watch for your collaborations with Cannibal Ox's Vast Aire.
No, I want collaborations with people that are just down to do it because they wanna do it, and it doesn't have to be a rapper, like on the next record I have the guy Tim Gane from Stereolab did something for me. I really try to crush the genres, change it.
Like for TTC, they have the spirit of Hip Hop, I never really find such an energy in America : Para One, Tacteel, these guys are really dope and they definitely are in the b-boy culture.

HHC : On your next album as GM Grimm, the list of producers is very impressive : Dr. Butcher, J-Zone, Jon Doe (Prophetix), Cadence, Rob Swift, Ninja B, Sean C, DJ Eli, Louie2, Rayna Shyne, Unagi… Apart from Dr Butcher, a long time friend of yours, these are for the most part unprecedented collaborations.

 BBC - collective - prefuse 73 - surrounded by silence
however, recent lukewarm reviews in both hip hop connection and nme show that a prefuse 73 album is anything but straight forward head banging beats and rhymes set of tracks.
so, while there are some standout hip hop collaborations spread throughout, these are sat against strange headf*ck sonic experiments, where the beats and noises are cut up, squashed, stretched and manipulated via the usual computer trickery.
this is probably the closest track to a classic b-boy hip hop track that prefuse 73 could create, and anyone who has picked up this cd expected more of the same are in for a head shock.

HHC: Originally the album, Army of One was scheduled to come out in fall of 2004.
It was a great way to use some marketing money to let people hear what didn't make the album… showcase all of our collaborations and affiliations with other crews and have something to give away to all the stores, shows and events that we're a part of.
HHC: You've been working with a lot of West Coast greats including opening recently for DPGC and doing a joint with Crooked I (which was featured on HipHopCanada.com's Canadian Choice Cuts).

 Jamaica Gleaner - Jamaican artistes collaborate big - Sunday | October 23, 2005
The slew of dancehall/hip hop collaborations has not slowed down either, as recent duos featuring Sean Paul and Beyonce, Vybz Kartel and Akon, Junior Gong and Nas, Sizzla and Foxy Brown and Elephant Man with the likes of R. Kelly, Janet Jackson, Usher, Little Jon and others, have taken the airwaves by storm.
These combinations are apparently made that much easier when the hip hop stars are big fans of dancehall/reggae music and dancehall artistes are likewise, big fans of hip hop music.
For Vybz Kartel, working with hip hop artistes like Jay Z, Missy Elliot, Akon, Rihanna (recently signed by Jay Z) and others is a feeling of family as both genres of music tend to draw from each other.

 List of hip hop collaborations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Collaborations between hip hop artists ("collabos") are frequent and one of the defining features of the genre.
When music is performed live, collaboration becomes even more common as rappers often have a "posse" on stage with them, who also perform, or simply dance.
Collaborations often occur when a rapper works with another rapper on a remix of their pre-existing song.

 Genius/GZA: Liquid Swords ---Ink Blot Magazine
While the RZA serves as the de-facto leader of the group, producing nearly every Wu-Tang venture and overseeing much of their business operations, the GZA is an educator and mentor to all members of the group.
A Staten Island native who was struck with the poetry buzz in his early teens, the Genius was a hip hop nomad of sorts in the late '80s, travelling to NYC's various boroughs to scope the styles coming out of each.
As hip hop barrels its way into middle America, newcomers to the genre might be initially confused by terms like "tight" and "sharp" often used to refer to talented MCs.
