Rock explained that Barker had heard some of the Bay Area’s Hyphy songs and felt that it was natural cousin to in terms of energy and drive you hear in hardcore rock. These revelations come less than a week after an associate of rapper The Game was shot outside Hot 97’s Manhattan studio by a man believed to be an associate of rival rapper 50 Cent, while “Fitty” was inside promoting his new album. 50 Cent had just said on the air that he was ejecting The Game, a former protégé, from his posse.

CHUCK D- It’s a cycle of greed that takes place when people instead of doing their job feel that they have the power. the Source Magazine has their Power 50 or 40 or whateva number that it is [Power 30], they got faces in there that have nothing to do w/ Hip-Hop.

Like jazz music, the blues genre originated from African Americans' worksongs, and was built around the premise of simple lyrics sung in a simple tune. Our time frame thus captures a period when rap music more closely reflected grassroots values and local conditions on the street and was somewhat less commercialized than today, although the interests of record labels were important during this time period as well. Another notable musical charity event during the decade was hosted by Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Neil Young.

Well, gone are the days of Hip Hop idealism and cultural militancy, but once again the Hip Hop generation is confronted with war. From its beginnings in New York's neighborhoods, rap spread first to other large cities in the northeast, then jumped across the continent to southern California, for reasons that had much more to do with the preexisting structure of the music industry than with any sort of monopoly on talent held by the California-based rappers and producers who entered the national rap market in the late 1980s.

Taking advantage of a provision in the recently amended Millennium Copyright Act of 2001, Gonahangya explained that he and his company have all the legal ammunition and clearance to own the rights to the phrase ‘Hip Hop’. With the emergence of a new generation of samplers such as the AKAI S900 in the late 1980s, producers did not require the aid of tape loops. We wouldn’t expect much less, though, given what we’ve come to know from previous works released by this this Brussels-based act.

Taking the hard-core sonic attack of Public Enemy and merging it with brutally explicit tales of the crime-ridden streets of South Central Los Angeles; it becomes a watershed moment for 'gangsta rap' and fully opens the door for West Coast rappers to gain national attention. Bluegrass acts of the 1950s included the Osborne Brothers (Sonny on banjo and Bobbie on mandolin), perhaps the most innovative of the new generation, as displayed in Ruby (1956); and the Stanley Brothers (Carter being the lead vocalist), much more focused on the vocal harmonies than on the instrumental counterpoint and solos, from the "high lonesome" style of A Vision of Mother to love songs such as How Mountain Girls Can Love (1959) to religious themes such as Gathering Flowers for the Master's Bouquet and Albert Brumley's Rank Strangers (1960).

Dre, Bitches Ain’t Shit) I’m only out to fuck a bitch, fuck tryin’ to charm her. These folksingers had little in common (stylistically or ideologically) with the hillbillies of country music, but they ended up creating the urban audience for country music. We use the Italian terms piano and forte to indicate soft and loud. Don't buy any pro software to start with. Rap lyrics are emotionally intense and often spin a rags-to-riches tale. Pondering over my thoughts regarding hip-hop’s “reconstruction”, I believe that we must first ask ourselves what is it that we want to reconstruct?
