The History of Hip Hop?????

What did it branch off of? I have been looking online with no success? Any ideas.

It shares similarities with toasting, which was popular in Jamaica back in the 70s and 80s (?).

Check out Yellowman, Eek-A-Mouse.

I'm sure others will have more information than I do.

I find it to be a combining of not only hop, but also hip. It's certainly better than either of them ever were on their own, that's for sure!

It started in poorer urban areas of the country. Kids couldn't afford guitars and drums, but could afford turntables and records. They started using the beats of other songs and infusing the beats to create new sounds. It was a return to the tribal drums of Africa in a way...

Would you consider rap of today a bad influence and not what it used to be when Public Enemy, 2pac, Biggie were around?

Depends. Some of it is shit, some of it is incredible music. Just like rock, opera, country, or any other music.

Some rap music is a terrible influence, but so is some rock.

I saw The Roots live last Spring (or Summer).

I like Kanye West and Outkast as well.
