The flow of Biggie Smalls is somewhat the reason why I include my life in my music, and LL Cool J provides that battle-rapper grittiness that I also include in my music. As I am an up and coming rapper myself, I find these artists to be some of my biggest inspirations, regardless of the division of Hip-Hop that they are
Yella sticking with the group caused him to become very good friends with Eazy-E and that is what kept him from leaving and starting his own label. Once Eazy-E died, Yella made his first solo album, and even though it was not successful, he made friends with associates of Eazy and made beats for
Ever wanted to listen to something upbeat and hardcore? Then hip-hop is your choice. This genre of music avails you to bring out that aggressive side, without actually being so. There 're various artists that paved the way, not only in the hip-hop world, outside of it also. The most prominent rap entertainer of all time is none other than Jay- Z.
For LL Cool J 's and Jamie Foxx 's song "Best Dress" they used Roland TR-808, however, their more recent production introduced 'live ' drum sounds comparable to what they would often use in N*E*R*D. On Busta Rhymes ' "Light Yo Ass On Fire" (2002) a big chorus effect on the rhythm track has been used for an industrial / sci-fi feel. Both The Neptunes and Pharrell as a solo producer are known for their use of percussion adding more groove to the drums. Examples are Robin Thicke 's "Blurred Lines" (2013) and Get Like Me (2013)
My favorite two songs are by, "Twenty-One Pilots - The Judge", and "Razihel - Canvas". The reason I like both of these songs is because they have a sort of calm feeling when you 're listening to them and the rhythm they have made you want to listen to both of them more. Although I have a liking to both of them, they 're also different too. Some ways they 're different are the genres. Twenty-One Pilots is alternative hip hop, while Razihel is an electronic music producer; the genre of the song "Canvas" is Nu Disco.
Overall where the album truly stands out is in Kanye West 's production work, and his ability to bring many different elements together is new and refreshing from the stage of gangsta that hip hop was in before. While it may not be his best album ever especially with his later albums such as “808s and Heartbreak” (2008), “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” (2010), and “Yeezus” (2013). It by far paved the way for more hip hop artists to expand their horizons into less traditional genres and experiment with new
Hip-hop earned a lot of popularity when rappers like ice-cube and will smith started acting and used their songs in there movies and tv shows. Then rappers like Tupac, Biggie, Snoop Dogg,Jay-z, and the rap group NWA became some of the most well known artists around the globe.

The group I choose is LHH (Love and Hip Hop) which is a television show that is aired on VH1. The characteristic from this group is rapping hip hop music lovers, also known as rap music lovers. The sound these girls love from the guys they date whom are signed music artist in the rap, or better described as the hip hop genre.

After noticing positive reactions from the crowd, DJ Kool Herc used a groundbreaking turntable technique to elongate the drum breaks in songs (Blanchard). The success of extended drum breaks caused many DJ’s around New York to use DJ Kool Herc’s technique. The technique led the birth of hip-hop music. During hip-hop songs, party hosts, better known as MC’s, told personal stories and expressed viewpoints
You can simply define the two aspects of hip hop music as a DJ and an MC. An MC would rap, while a DJ would provide a beat via their electronic equipment or by creating a beat-box with their voice. There are certain musical characteristics that originated from or solely exist in hip hop. One of those is turntablism. Turntables are used in hip hop to sample and scratch, which shapes the sound of the recording to the DJ 's desired effect.
As Perry’s fame grew, so did his bizarre behavior and sounds. He developed a peculiar addiction to wearing headdresses and costumes made of objects like coins, feathers, playing cards, and toys during interviews (“Reggae Artists”). His new and experimental sounds gave way to a new form of music called Dub. Dubbing by definition is “the reworking of a taped track by removing some parts and exaggerating others.” Perry’s use of technologies such as phase shifters and drum machines helped him create weird and new sounds, influencing the creation of dub and dancehall (“Lee “Scratch” Perry”). According to Rolling Stone’s biography of Perry, his producing career was also at a high.
The genre of hip hop or “rap music” has produced a great deal of influential music and people. Beginning in the early 1970s, rap music consists of rhythmic sounds, followed by rhythmic speech. With melody’s continuing for over 40 years, hip hop has created statements that define exactly why its reign will be everlasting. Hip hop is also a culture, popular simply because it is purely creative, and truly genius. Illmatic illustrates that exact authenticity, and originality through outstanding lyricism, and production.
