Hey what’s up beautiful people, hip hop lovers, happy new month!
Uhm without wasting much time, let’s get started with which African country is taking the lead in African hip hop presently. But wait! What is hip hop music and how did it get to Africa?
Origin Of Hip Hop:
Hip hop music, also known as rap music, is a genre of popular music developed in the United States by inner-city African Americans and Latino Americans in the Bronx borough of New York City in the 1970s.
It consists of a stylized rhythmic music that commonly accompanies rapping, a rhythmic and rhyming speech that is chanted. It developed as part of hip hop culture, a subculture defined by four key stylistic elements:
MCing/rapping, DJing scratching with turntables, break dancing, and graffiti writing. Other elements include sampling beats or bass lines from records (or synthesized beats and sounds), and rhythmic beatboxing. While often used to refer solely to rapping, “hip hop” more properly denotes the practice of the entire subculture.
The term hip hop music is sometimes used synonymously with the term rap music, though rapping is not a required component of hip hop music; the genre may also incorporate other elements of hip hop culture, including DJing, turntablism, scratching, beatboxing, and instrumental tracks.
HIP Hop In African:
Hip hop music has been popular in Africa since the early 1980s due to widespread African American influence.
In 1985 hip hop reached Senegal, a French-speaking country in West Africa. Some of the first Senegalese rappers were M.C. Lida, M.C. Solaar, and Positive Black Soul.
No doubt the hip hop music have come to stay in Africa, but there are African countries that has dominated and taking lead when it comes to rap music.
The question now is, which of the African Country(s)?
