The Beginning Of Hip-Hop and Rap

Rap is unique and to be a rapper means you should know and be able to comprehend how to create content that not only rhymes (though some rap songs don’t rhyme), but also complement the beat and syllabically come together. Moreover, besides musical ability and talent, rappers frequently have the skills in performance and self-promotion.

As a genre, rap started in New York at block parties in the early 70s, when DJs (disc jockeys) began separating the percussion breaks of soul, funk, as well as disco music and lengthening them. MCs (master of ceremonies) who were tasked to introduce the DJs and maintain the energy of the crowd would speak between songs, jest and mostly interact with the audience.

Over time, speaking and rhyming over while being in sync with the music became a common thing for MCs, who were soon known as rappers. Rap music, which was at first dismissed as a short-lived fad, demonstrated its commercial viability with the release of “Rapper’s Delight” by The Sugarhill Gang’s in 1979 and again proved itself with the release of the “The Breaks” by Kurtis Blow in 1980. The latter was a Top 5 hit that ultimately went gold.
