It is a genre of music that begun in the early 1970's among predominently African-Americans in New York. By the late 70's hip hop was seen as a viable alterative to disco which by then had became over-commercialised with everyone from the Rolling Stones to even Frank Sinatra jumping on the disco band wagon. Disco was starting to fall out of favour with its original listeners who tend to shun mainstream trends.

  • The vocal style of hip hop is talking rythmically to the music (or beat). The term rap itself stems from the 1960's use of the term to describe conversing with aquaintances. Rapping is very different to singing with vocal range taking a definite back seat to innovative rhyming. Vocal range is infact, so unimportant to rap that, generally, rappers are not expected to be able to hit ANY note whatsoever. The vocal of a hip hop record is usually in tune with the music only by accident - the rapper adjusts his/her style to what sounds best for the recording. It's just by conincidence that the best style is usually in tune. The rapper is also refered to as the MC or even emcee. This name derives from the

  • Rap: The Samples.All these files are short clips of around 30 to 60 seconds each in Ogg Vorbis format."Who the hell is Ogg Vorbis when he's at home?" I hear you ask. An ogg file is simply an alterative to a mp3 file. Both formats offer almost equal quality sound with a small file size with ogg being slightly better than mp3. However, the main advantage of ogg is that unlike mp3, it doesn't have patent restristrictions that make it difficult for me to use it. You should be able to play ogg files with any player that can play mp3 files.
