Hip Hop Culture and Rap Music

A Reflection of African American History in the United States

2 Rap Musics Beginning

Rap Musics Beginning

Rap music emerged out of a Hip-Hop culture of the 1960s and 1970s with its emphasis on political expression and resistance through graffiti, modes of dress, language and social practices (Beach)

3 DJ Kool Herc

DJ Kool Herc

Rap music was influenced by Jamaican toasting especially by a Jamaican immigrant in 1967 Clive Campbell who became know as DJ Kool Herc (Rhodes)

4 DJ Kool Herc

DJ Kool Herc

Kool Herc seldom played an entire song. He knew which part of the record sent his audience into a frenzy. It was usually a 30 second break section in which the drums, bass, and rhythm guitar stripped the beat to its barest essence. Herc would buy two copies of the same record and play it over and over emphasizing the break section. Herc used two turntables to accomplish this feat. This technique became known as beats or break-beats. .. What was odd about Hercs style was that he did not use headphones to locate the breaks on the other turntable as other DJs would do who would later use his style. As with the onset of Jamaican toasting, Kool Herc also used simple phrases to encourage his dancers. But as the mixing in the breaks between the two turntables required more concentration, Herc became the first DJ to create MC-Dance team. (While Kool Herc performed at a club named the Hevalo, dancers to his music became known as break dancers) (Rhodes)
