Origin of the term

.Creation of the term hip hop is often credited to Keith Cowboy, rapper with Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five.^ Even if I don’t like his music, I still appreciate Deadlee creating a voice for the GLBT community in an arena that we are under-represented (id est hip-hop).

[4] However, Lovebug Starski, Keith Cowboy, and DJ Hollywood used the term when the music was still known as disco rap. .It is believed that Cowboy created the term while teasing a friend who had just joined the U.S. Army, by scat singing the words "hip/hop/hip/hop" in a way that mimicked the rhythmic cadence of marching soldiers.^ FOR hip hop, not just to the people who listen to hip hop.

[4] Cowboy later worked the "hip hop" cadence into a part of his stage performance, which was quickly used by other artists such as The Sugarhill Gang in "Rapper's Delight".[4]
.Zulu Nation member Afrika Bambaataa is credited with first using the term to describe the subculture in which the music belonged; although it is also suggested that it was a derogatory term to describe the type of music.^ I've heard soul singers use all types of metaphors to describe their ideal man, but the use of a "Dutch Master," would be a first for me.

The griots of West Africa are a group of traveling singers and poets who are part of an oral tradition dating back hundreds of years. Their vocal style is similar to that of rappers. The African-American traditions of signifyin', the dozens, and jazz poetry are all descended from the griots. .In addition, musical 'comedy' acts such as Rudy Ray Moore and Blowfly are considered by some to be the forefathers of rap.^ Century Dolemite ~ Rudy Ray Moore The Right Stuff Rudy Ray Moore .

.Within New York City, griot-like performances of poetry and music by artists such as The Last Poets, Gil Scott Heron and Jalal Mansur Nuriddin had a significant impact on the post-civil rights era culture of the 1960s and 1970s.^ If he doesnt, he risks dying at an early age like other great artist such as Jimmy Hendrix.

Due to the fact that the percussive breaks were generally short, Herc and other DJs began extending them using an audio mixer and two records.
Turntablist techniques, such as beat mixing/matching, scratching (seemingly invented by Grand Wizard Theodore) and beat juggling eventually developed along with the breaks, creating a base that could be rapped over. This same techniques contributed to the popularization of remixes. .Such looping, sampling and remixing of another's music, sometimes without the original artist's knowledge or consent, can be seen as an evolution of Jamaican dub music,[8][9] and would become a hallmark of the hip hop style.^ And I understand they're trying to incorporate modern styles (Lil' Jon, Lil' Wayne) into the list, but the fact is there are sooo much better hip-hop artists of today than the Lil's.

Jamaican immigrants also provided an influence on the vocal style of rapping by delivering simple raps at their parties, inspired by the Jamaican tradition of toasting.[8][10] DJs and MCs would often add call and response chants, often comprising of a basic chorus, to allow the performer to gather his thoughts (e.g. ."one, two, three, y'all, to the beat").^ Second of all, KRS-One and Scott La Rock are the two members of Boogie Down Productions (#49).
