Five cultures in the Hip Hop world (Part 1)

Have you ever known the history of Hip Hop. What is Hip hop and what does it include? And have you ever heard of 4 cultures in Hip hop?

In fact there are many misconceptions about Hip Hop. Some people think that HipHop is a version of “white people” based on the tone of “people of color” (or Latin HipHop) . Others argue that HipHop is a genre, and Rap is just a combination of rhyming through the rhythm of HipHop. But in fact Hip hop is more than just melodies, it’s a genre, it’s a whole multi-part and very impressive culture.

In the original sense, “hip” means “fashionable”, but it also has another meaning “to manage”. “Hop” is a suggestive word, expressing the leap forward, reaching out, if combined, “hiphop” implies positively about “progress and progress through intelligence and resourcefulness”.

Hip hop is derived from black culture. It was the popular American commercial culture, formed from immigrant colored people from the Caribbean to the New York suburbs. It was formed in the 1970s in New York’s Bronx subdivision and has spread throughout the world, penetrating and mixing with many different cultures, becoming a broad movement covering many areas of new and old art.

HipHop includes 4 cultures:

1. Breakdance:

The term “breakdancing” refers to the break in music and the movements associated with the music.

At first breakdance was based on jazz music by the original African and Latin American musicians. Dance break gradually developed with many complex movements and cleverly sliding to the ground called acrobatic, in which dancers often use arms and arms to support the body when turning and tumbling around in the background.

The first dance groups to use and develop this dance are Dynamic Rocker and New York City breaker. Breakdance appeared in 1969, created by James Brown and it originated from Good Foot dance.

2. Graffiti (wall art)

Graffiti originates from the words that black gangs intertwine on the wall to determine the territory of business. Gradually, they spread to public places like subway stations, train stations, etc…

From the initial signatures and the original scribbles at the beginning, currently the Graffiti art developed into 3-dimensional drawings and sophisticated patterns.

Until now, Graffiti painting appears mostly on products of HipHop culture, clothes, cars, CDs, and houses. Graffiti has never been allowed and approved by the government. Graffiti is also known as Art Crimes, which is a HipHop art, requiring people to express a risk, despite the rules.
