Rap and Hip Hop Beats Are a Revolution in Music

It is crazy how many people are out there trying to make it in the music industry. It is a billion dollar industry now a days but it's much more of a different situation compared to what it was just 10 years ago. There's been a digital revolution it's not all about making physical copy's any more everything is digital.

That can be both a good thing and a bad thing for artist. I mean back in the day the artist could make so much more from physical sales since that was the only way for fans to get new music. Now you can download almost anything for free. This makes it better for the fans. You have to create something of quality and meaning for a fan to purchase your music or even be interested in you.

So the revolution begins what will you do to make you voice heard. I mean don't you want to leave your mark, or make a meaning out of your life, I know I do. I really wish more people were like me and had the same ambitions and goals. I have my own website and a few CDs made, now I'm ready to put it out there for the world.

The History of Rap and Hip Hop Music

The origin of hip-hop can be traced back as far as the ancient tribes in Africa. Rap has been compared with the chants, drumbeats and foot-stomping African tribes performed before wars, the births of babies, and the 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 the low-income areas of New York City.

Fast-forward from the tribes of Africa to the ghettos of Kingston, Jamaica in the late sixties. The impoverished of Kingston gathered together in groups to form DJ conglomerates. They spun roots and culture records and communicated with the audience over the music. At the time, the DJ's comments weren't as important as the quality of the sound system and its ability to get the crowd moving. Kool Herc grew up in this community before he moved to the Bronx.

Understanding Rap and Hip Hop Music

It managed to fulfill the needs and wants of music lovers of different races and cultures in ways no one could have anticipated and became responsible for the entire electronic-based music explosion throughout the world.

Since its birth in 1970s to this date, so many styles have emerged. The electronic synthesizers, drum machines and sequencers had all contributed heavily to the emerge of these styles. There are many sub-styles of those genres in today's popular music.

Today it means much more than just music, rap and dance. It is culture, philosophy, partying, knowledge, dancing, rapping and more. It is a lifestyle, where you can experience a journey to everything with passion.
