Everything about the history of hip hop (Part 3)
Hip hop new stage
In the mid-1980s the next wave of rappers emerged. Led by Run-DMC, a middle-class African-American trio that merges rap with hard rock, has defined a new style of hip dress and has become a staple on MTV when they bring rap to the audience. Run-DMC is one of the new brands that has capitalized on the burgeoning rap market. Def Jam has three key creators: LL Cool J (rap’s first romantic superstar), Beastie Boys (a white trio composed with music and electronic sounds extracted from recordings other); and Public Enemy (who has invested in rapping with extreme black political ideology, building on the social consciousness of Grandmaster Flash and “Message” by Furious Five (1982).
The 1979–93 Rap classic period also included significant contributions from De La Soul – Tommy Boy’s debut album, 3 Feet High and Rising (1989), pointing to a more playful new direction – and Female rappers like Queen Latifah and Salt-n-Pepa, who came up with an alternative to the predominantly male stance. Hip-hop artists from other parts of New York City began to make their mark, including DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince (Will Smith), Philadelphia, 2 Live Crew, Miami and MC Hammer, Oakland, California …
In the late 1990s, hip-hop was dominated by the Wu-Tang Clan art, from New York City’s Staten Island, which has a mix of street reliability, neo-Islamic mysticism and infusion. The kung fu theory has made them one of the most complex groups in rap history by Diddy (known by various names, including Sean “Puffy” Combs and Puff Daddy), performer, producer producer and president of Bad Boy Records, who is responsible for a series of creative music videos; and by Fugees, who mixed pop music with politics and launched Wyclef Jean and Lauryn Hill’s solo careers.
Hip-Hop In The 21st Century
In the 21st century, the industrial music scene can be said to have entered a period of crisis. Hip-hop suffered worse than other genres, with sales declining throughout the decade. At the same time, it reinforces its position as the dominant influence in global youth culture. Even famous “boy bands”, like the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC, have quickly adapted to the new trend.
In the early 2000s, hip-hop’s creative center turned to South Americans. Following OutKast’s increasingly tried and tested success and the stability of New Orleans artists emerged from two record companies – Cash Money and No Limit Records.
Despite the many internal effects of hip hop, it’s still evolving and continues to expand so far.
