The last major similarity is that both genres have many of the same production characteristics, referring to song structure, production elements, harmony, loudness, mode, dynamic, pitch and note onset. As well as similar instrumentation and syncopated drum programming. Typically you’ll find within the production elements of Hip Hop a lot of sample based tracks, incorporated with heavy basslines usually sampled from the Roland TR 808 and pitched down in octaves ( music map/southern hip hop 2017 ). The drum programming is syncopated and has pronounced kicks and snares on the 1st

How He Started Kendrick Duckworth Lamar, arguably one of the best rappers of our time. He was born June 17, 1987, in Compton, California. He’s twenty-eight years old, and will be turning twenty-nine in three months. His stage name used to be K-Dot until he noticed that that's not what he wants to be called for the rest of his career, so he changed his stage name to his birth name, Kendrick Lamar. After being inspired by Tupac and Dr. Dre’s song/ music video “California Love,” by the time sixteen years old, he had already released a mixtape.
There has always been a strong connection between hip hop music and pop music. It has brought a bountiful amount of collaborations and music that makes individuals want to dance and have a great time. Many times there is a negative connection between the musical styles. For example, there is also a lot of disdain between artists, many times about whether their respective genre is what they consider “real” music. Pop music has been defined as “a body of music which is distinguishable from popular jazz, rock and folk music.” Hip Hop music has been defined as “ a music genre that consists of stylized rhythmic music that commonly accompanies rapping, a rhythmic and rhyming speech that is chanted.” The sheer number of similarities between hip
Instead, he attempts to connect to the events going on and the emotions that the unspoken youth deal with it Chicago. On song such as the intoxication of the album, “The Neighborhood,” Common exemplifies this by describing how many of the current situations goes all the way back to his childhood when drugs were easily tangible. Going deeper into the soundtracks, on his speaker knocking track, “Kingdom,” he captures the point of view of the youth by saying, “Dead presidents, we want the same face/And to think, me and the president, we from the same place,” meaning the kids in Chicago hustle via drug dealing just to get currency of presidents that were from their state, Illinois. As a lyricist, Common has always performed his best on tracks when he has a specific topic to write about, whether it was the concept of metaphorically rapping about Hip Hop being someone he fell out of love with like his single, “I Used to Love H.E.R.”or life in his neighborhood from youth like in his song, "The Corner." With such a deep and touching topic that acquired his best effort yet, vocalizing deep lyrics like, “Listening to this preacher as he tryin’ to reach us/I’ma need to go back, I gots to get
The album didn’t come with any promotion or advertising. Top Dawg CEO Anthony Tiffith announced that TDE would be releasing something, but nobody expected it to be an eight-track K.Dot album. Kendrick doesn’t really have an overly active presence on social media, there’s no video clips, the album doesn’t even have a real name or track listing, and the cover itself is just plain green with a tiny bit of text in the corner. Despite no hype (save for a slightly early Spotify leak which sent music journalists and fans alike into brief meltdown) or publicity, the album still managed to debut at the top spot on the Billboard charts, his second album in under a year to do so. In the past year, we have seen more and more rappers partaking in publicity stunts, most notably social media beefsThe basic result of these public beefs was still a focus on the music, with record sales increasing at the same time as – but not specifically, strictly intending to – alienate their opponent. The history of hip-hop beefs travels far deeper than the music; it was territorial and often gang-related, a reminder that gangsta rap was actually born out of a life of gang involvement, and the real violence which occurred on the streets. But the point is that these incidents don’t push his career further than his actual music does.
