Hip hop music
Discuss August Origins Hip hop as music and culture formed during the late s in New York City from the multicultural exchange between African-American youth from the United States and young immigrants and children of immigrants from countries in the Caribbean. It is hard to pinpoint the exact musical influences that most affected the sound and culture of early hip hop because of the multicultural nature of New York City.
Hip hop's early pioneers were influenced by a mix of music from their cultures and the cultures they were exposed to as a result of the diversity of U. This influence was brought on by cultural shifts particularly because of the heightened immigration of Jamaicans to New York City and the American-born Jamaican youth who were coming of age during the s. Block parties incorporated DJs, who played popular genres of music, especially funk and soul music. Due to the positive reception, DJs began isolating the percussive breaks of popular songs.
This technique was common in Jamaican dub music and was largely introduced into New York by immigrants from the Caribbean, including DJ Kool Hercone of the pioneers of hip hop.
Herc created the blueprint for hip hop music and culture by building upon the Jamaican tradition of impromptu toastinga spoken type of boastful poetry and speech over music. He extended the beat of a record by using two record players, isolating the percussion "breaks" by using a mixer to switch between the two records.
Herc's experiments with making music with record players became what we now know as breaking or " scratching ". Emceeing is the rhythmic spoken delivery of rhymes and wordplay, delivered at first without accompaniment and later done over a beat. This spoken style was influenced by the African American style of "capping", a performance where men tried to outdo each other in originality of their language and tried to gain the favor of the listeners.
MCing and rapping performers moved back and forth between the predominance of "toasting" songs packed with a mix of boasting, 'slackness' and sexual innuendo and a more topical, political, socially conscious style. The MC would introduce the DJ and try to pump up the audience. The MC spoke between the DJ's songs, urging everyone to get up and dance.
MCs would also tell jokes and use their energetic language and enthusiasm to rev up the crowd. Eventually, this introducing role developed into longer sessions of spoken, rhythmic wordplay, and rhyming, which became rapping.
By hip hop music had become a mainstream genre. It spread across the world in the s with controversial "gangsta" rap. This form of music playback, using hard funk and rock, formed the basis of hip hop music. Campbell's announcements and exhortations to dancers would lead to the syncopated, rhymed spoken accompaniment now known as rapping.
He dubbed his dancers "break-boys" and "break-girls", or simply b-boys and b-girls. According to Herc, "breaking" was also street slang for "getting excited" and "acting energetically".
Sensing that gang members' often violent urges could be turned into creative ones, Afrika Bambaataa founded the Zulu Nationa loose confederation of street-dance crews, graffiti artists, and rap musicians.
By the late s, the culture had gained media attention, with Billboard magazine printing an article titled "B Beats Bombarding Bronx", commenting on the local phenomenon and mentioning influential figures such as Kool Herc.
As a result, the hip hop genre, barely known outside of the Bronx at the time, grew at an astounding rate from onward. Hosted in parks, these outdoor parties became a means of expression and an outlet for teenagers, where "instead of getting into trouble on the streets, teens now had a place to expend their pent-up energy.

As well, the art of Jamaican toastinga style of talking or chanting into a microphone, often in a boastful style, while beats play over a sound systemwas an important influence on the development of hip hop music. Toasting is another influence found in Jamaican dub music. Ali influenced several elements of hip hop music. Both in the boxing ring and in media interviews, Ali became known in the s for being "rhyming trickster" in the s. Ali used a " funky delivery" for his comments, which included "boasts, comical trash talk[and] the endless quotabl[e]" lines.

After Swinford left to pursue touring and session work, they recruited guitarist Koichi Fukudaand renamed the band Static-X. Records in earlyand released their debut album, Wisconsin Death Tripon March 23, The band toured heavily in support of the album, with Static recounting: We worked so hard and toured so hard that I don't even remember most of it.
We played shows in the first year and we just never went home. We would tour on one tour for six or eight weeks and that tour would end somewhere on the East Coast and we'd drive a couple days and hook up with Slayer and tour with them for four or five weeks.
That tour ends and then we'd drive a few days to Boston to hook up with Sevendust. We just kept going and kept going and never went home. I mean I didn't even have a home. I lived at the rehearsal space for the last year before we started touring. I had to quit my job to make the record so I didn't have anywhere to even go home to I look back at it now and I kinda wish I had taken the time to sit back and appreciate it more.
Maybe got to know some of the other bands a little more and spend time and having a good time and partying and maybe taking some pictures of the other guys. Static, worried they would be unable to deliver another successful album, desired to start work on follow up material while still touring in support of Wisconsin Death Trip, while the rest of the band wanted to focus on enjoying the touring.
