Hip-Hop Music History and Facts
The Hip-Hop genre of music was first introduced in the US from African-American urban communities in New York. Its popularity has only increased since then and was reportedly the best-selling genre in the mid 1990’s with big names like MC Hammer, Wu-Tang Clan and The Fugees dominating the industry. Hip-Hop has had a diverse history which given us a wealth of many interesting facts, such as:
- Kool Herc is credited with the birth of hip-hop after using the style we recognise today in a back-to-school party he threw in 1973.
- Before hip-hop was named it was previously called ‘disco rap’.
- Hip-hop star Tupac said that he was heavily influenced by Shakespeare.
