Topic: Social Significance of Rap and Hip-Hop Culture Todays rap and hip-hop music is mostly a reflection of the young, urban, working class African Americans. The songs have strong messages that are portrayed time and time again because the emotional connection these artist have with their emotions and how the feel about the struggles they’ve endured throughout years of social injustice and neglect and racism and prejudice acts. Not only are the lyrics enough to form s tory but the rhythms and beats that accompany them come from the culture and traditional music that African Americans played when drums and DJ equipment and all these fancy electronics didn’t exist. The rapping associated with the beats was originally confronted as a set of skills that were combined with the music but the origin and poetric symbolisim that these set of skills have with the African culture is unlike any other. “Hip-hop music is generally considered to have been pioneered in New York's South Bronx in 1973 by Jamaican-born Kool DJ Herc. At a Halloween dance party thrown by his younger sister, Herc used an innovative turntable technique to stretch a song's drum break by playing the break portion of two identical records consecutively.” THE SOCIAL SIGNIFICANCE OF RAP & HIP-HOP CULTURE. (1999, July) if this exact moment is what created ‘breakdancing’ then why would the creative and emotional movement stop there? These people had to make something of themselves. They came from nothing and they found opportunities to use their history and culture to make something new and exciting and obviously very very popular.
