Hip-hop-the culture, the fashion, and the music-started on the streets and in the clubs of the Bronx in New York City. For young people living in the borough's poverty-stricken neighborhoods, it was an inexpensive way to have fun. But it was also a way to spread the word of what the real world was like
In Hip-Hop Around the World, readers will learn that though the Bronx is the genre's birthplace, its genes were formed in the music of Jamaica. The story of how the small island nation influenced Jamaica is told. Learn about how the East Coast phenomenon spread all across the country, and then throughout the world. Readers will discover hip-hop in Africa, Europe, and Britain. Perhaps most important, readers will learn that wherever hip-hop develops, it morphs to become relevant to that location. It is truly a music of the people.
