  Hip hop music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The golden age of hip hop, from 1985 to 1993, consolidated the sounds of the East Coast and the West Coast and transitioned into the modern era with the rise of gangsta rap and G-funk.
Hip hop music is a part of hip hop, a cultural movement that includes the activities of breakdancing and graffiti art, as well as associated slang, fashion and other elements.
Contemporary hip hop fashion includes the wearing of baggy jeans slung low around the waist, gold or platinum chains and boots or a fresh pair of kicks (sneakers), and bandanas or doo rags tied around the head (often worn with a baseball cap on top) ; these elements are more typical of men than women.

 Roots of hip hop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hip hop culture, including rapping, scratching, graffiti, and breakdancing, emerged from 1970s block parties in New York City, specifically The Bronx (Toop, 1991).
Lastly, most existing hip hop acts were shocked when King Tim III's throwback to radio DJs rhyming jive and the Sugarhill Gang's appropriation of rap on their remake, not sample, of CHIC's "Good Times" were released, as most DJs and MCs knew each other and many had been attempting to record (Toop, 1991).
The skills necessary to create hip hop music were passed informally from musician to musician, rather than being taught in expensive music lessons.

More lyrical, musical and rock-influenced than the jazzy and soulful clips from their last studio album, this sixth disc is a bit of a departure from what fans of neo-soul/neo-hip-hop have come to expect.
While some of those neo-defining elements are still present, the Roots ended up drawing much of their inspiration from the soul classics.
With their unique look, the Roots drew a core group of diehard followers but failed to break through in the hard-core hip-hop music industry defined by gangsta' rap, bling-bling and the Benjamins.

Rapping, the rhythmic use of spoken or semi-sung lyrics grew from its roots in the tribal chants and the plantation work songs to become, an integral part of fl resistance to an oppresive white society.
While all this was happening on the hot and sweaty dancefloors of the Bronx, out on the streets another vital element of the hip hop scene was falling into place.
Hip hop has certainly come a long way from those early, chaotic days down in the Bronx and the music's success is best summed up by the opening line of Afrika Bambaataa's 'Renegades Of Funk’: 'No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now.'

Well, it's not such a secret in hip hop circles that his '80s work has been heavily sampled, mostly because of its booming, ultra-compressed drums.
Furthermore, while it's fun to listen to these tracks and play the "spot the sample" game, many times it's the hip hop producers who are more responsible than the artists for incorporating a certain sample.
You can't deny that hip hop as we know it wouldn't exist without James Brown and his funky drummer, and a live "Give it Up or Turnit Loose" is a great reminder of that.
