DJ Kool Herc is credited as one, if not the originator, of hip-hop. Kool Herc brought his Caribbean style when emigrated from Jamaica in 1967. He began this new musical journey with the desire to bring the powerful Jamaican Dancehall sound system to play music at parties and in the streets. In 1973 he had created his own sound system
Beginning at 0:09 in “My Name is”, Eminem uses sample appeared at 2:31 in “I Got the…” as a major rhythm for the whole song. Sampling is one of the most common elements in the hip-hop music. Sampling is the act of using recordings of other music in making new music. In the hip-hop music history, sampling is always a controversial topic legally and musically since sampling relates to the issue of the copyright of the music. Does sampling violate the other musicians’ copyright? Does sampling threaten the innovation of the music? Those questions are the most sensitive debates about sampling. Sampling begins in mid-1970s, when DJs mixed between particular parts of records, especially the breakdowns, to inspire dancers in the party. The technique, such as spinning and scratching the record while it played, can be considered as an early form of sampling in hip-hop music. In the mid-1980s, the primary use of “sampling” as a basis of the beat is a main shift in production. “La Di Da Di” produced by Slick Rick and Doug E Fresh is probably the most sampled song in hip-hop. Sampling has three “layers”, which are the sound, the reference and the intertextuality. The artist may use sampling to refer the older piece’s context or refer to other people’s use of the same sample. There are some famous cases regarding sampling in the hip-hop history. For example, “Pretty Women” produced by 2 Live Crew was sued for using Roy Orbison’s song. As a result, 2 Live Crew won on the basis
Hip-hop, which originated more than 20 years ago, is a musical art form. It has went through many changes during its lifetime. The music and lyrics have always remained centered in urban settings, with most artists of the music rising up from the inner-city neighborhoods. Beginning with a young generation of African-Americans from the Bronx looking to express themselves, it has since evolved to inspire people from all backgrounds across the world. During a time of segregation where clubs and the music played in them were only for white citizens. Hip hop was created in the 1970s and is defined by four key elements; MCing/rapping, DJing/scratching, break dancing, and graffiti writing. People would learn to breakdance to Afrika Bambaataa, who contributed a series of tracks influencing the hip hop culture.
I come from a musical family. All my years growing up, I've always had an interest in music. My uncle loves poetry and my parent's rap, but I was always the one who didn't know how to rap or sing or anything. I was more interested in the instrumentals. Every
Like any style of music, hip hop has roots in other forms, In the Bronx in the early 1970s DJ Kool Herc, AKA the “Father of Hip Hop,
Another pioneer in Hip Hop was a Joseph Saddler, or as the Hip Hop world knows him as Grandmaster Flash. Grandmaster Flash created the cue monitor, that allowed through the DJ to hear one record through their headphones while the
Kool DJ Herc opened the door to the world for many up and comers such as Grandmaster Flash. DJ Grandmaster Flash and his group the Furious Five were hip-hop, greatest innovators, transcending the genres’ party music origins to explore the full scope of its lyrical and sonic horizons. Grandmaster Flash, born Joseph Saddler, began spinning records as a team growing up in the Bronx. By age 19, while attending technical school courses in electronics during the day, he was also d-jaying on a local disco circuit. Over time he developed a series of groundbreaking techniques including “cutting” (moving between tracks exactly on beat), “back spinning” (manually turning records to repeat brief snippets of sound), and “phasing” (manipulating turntable speeds). In short Grandmaster Flash created the basic vocabulary, which DJ’s continue to follow even today (Brewster and Broughton, 2000).
Hip-hop is possibly the most popular genre on the planet right now and because of t copyright infringement rules many artist are forced to recreate works in order to avoid various lawsuits or paying fees that can range anywhere from $500 to $20,000 for one single act.
Tracing the Rap/Hip-Hop Dichotomy in Popular and Underground Music Rap music has experienced a radical increase in popularity in the last five years. In the year 2000, rap became the second-best-selling genre in music, capturing 12.9 percent of the year's $14.3 billion in total record sales ("Rap/Hip Hop" Sc 1). Though rap is no stranger to criticism, that criticism has increased in both quantity and vociferousness at about the same rate as the number of rap albums climbing the charts. And the growing evidence that, apparently, in order to achieve commercial success, each rap album must be more negative and offensive than the last does not help to address these criticisms.
Hip Hop music has always been tied to the music and sounds of the past. Sampling might be one of the most apparent nods to past legacies. Andrew Bartlett explored the concept of sampling in his “Airshafts, Loudspeakers and the Hip Hop Sample” article (Forman, 393). In his project, he highlighted authors that referred to sampling as “holding music at gunpoint” and a “mixing of colors” (393). Sampling is all of the above and a keystone in hip-hop. As an avid listener of the genre, many cadences and beats sound the same, and there is a reason why. Beside the stock sounds available to a majority of producers, particular sounds tend to be sampled more than others. One, if not the most, sampled sound in hip-hop is by a drummer on James Brown’s 1986
In the 1990’s we saw many artists sampling the work of other artists in order to make their own songs. Sampling is described “as the act of taking a portion, or sample, of one song recording and reusing it as an instrument or a sound recording in a different song or piece” (Wikipedia, 2016). Although sampling has been around for a long time, Hip Hop music was one of the most popular music genres to embrace this method and create their own style from it.
Today’s hip hop videos are very predictable with fancy locations (a mansion perhaps!), expensive jewelry, cars and of course, lots of beautiful scantily clad women who are used as eye candy to sexualize the content which is usually offensive and demeaning lyrics about women.
