Rap music

Rap stands for ‘Rhythm and Poetry’. It was inspired by West African musicians who told their stories through rhythm. The poets in the Caribbean were ‘singing poets’. They told their stories in a rhythmic patterns accompanied by traditional instruments such as drums.

These are the foundation of what we know today as Rap Music.

Rap music first emerged in the scene in the late 1970s. A genre that hardly followed any rules. Music filled with emotions conveyed in form of rhymes. Sometimes containing inappropriate slangs. As the years went by topics such as violence, sex, socio-political issues became a part of the songs.

The African American teenagers of the early 70s introduced rap as a form of street art. But people did not recognize it until the late 70s when ‘Rappers Delight’ was released. Gradually the genre caught an audience. Mostly young African American adults.

In the next decade white rap bands started to emerge. Music created by both male and female rap artists were reaching the top of the music charts.

Even today rap holds its place on top of the charts as artists like Jay-Z, Lil-Wayne, Eminem and Drake continue creating new music.
