Key Moments In Hip-Hop History

 


Hip hop is more than music; it’s a cultural movement that incorporates different elements of art. Before there was Lil Yachty, Young M.I.A., or YNW Melly, there was a world of hip hop artist who's name rain supreme even still today.


Back when music was real, artist had the opportunity to shine in their own distinctive way. Rap is one of the most distinctive features of hip-hop. Rappers use rhythm, lyrics, and vocal tone to express themselves. The best rappers are distinguished by their “flow” – the way the words run together without the performer getting tongue-tied.

Sip Hop Named New Arthor

Sip Hop was born in Cleveland, Mississippi Feb. 17 1984, always had two things that he always love was basketball and love for Hip Hop. He fell in love with Hip Hop as a child for rappers like Rahkim, Kool Moe Dee and KRS-One but it was emcees like Nas inspired him to be a rapper.

At the age of 13 Sip started to really go for the rap flow as this was the time when rappers like Bone Thugs and Twista was running the rap show, so at eight grade Sip start joining the cypher rapping even though it was just for fun at that time. By tenth grade Sip started to put the basketball down and go for the rapping thing even though from the delta in Mississippi was really hard to get heard. So then I had to move elsewhere just to connect with the right musicians.

after completing High School That's when i met Shockhouse Productions in Chicago, IL from a rapper name Sleepy Boy. He was forming this group called Face Off with 2 more fellas in the group, sleepy asked if i can join with the group even though i was with the group going to a month. After the situation with leaving the group he decided to go solo in the booth at The Shockhouse. Feeling like a real rapper in this booth Sip reply.

After that moment, thats when i started to link up with this Promoter and rapper Gansta Marcus. Every since then, independent minded thats known in hits like Swag On 100 with Reese Feat me on the track and also with the mixtape  titled Cool Fresh and Versatile with Songs like Mississippi Time To Shine, Still Hustling and Hold Up Feat..Gansta Marcus. The rest is history..

Gansta Marcus Talks Top 5 Rappers Of All Times

(The Wrap-Up Magazine) When rappers mention who is there top 5 hottest of all times, all differ in their own way. Lima, Ohio producer Gansta Marcus releases his list of all time favorites. Check out his list below and why.

"I was raised in the eara where 90's hip-hop was top of the market. We had rappers such as Tupac and Biggie, Nas and Jay-Z. My top 5 list of hottest rappers would consist of Master P +Percy Miller +DMXS Radio +Ruff Ryders Entertainment Nelly +ST Lunatic Nate Dogg +Snoop Dogg +EminemMusic and UGK +UNDER GROUND KINGS.

There were many great hits created back then that will last forever. But nothing came better than these artist because they kept putting out hit after hit over the years. When Master P released Bout It, it took the world by storm. Shortly after, Ghetto D hit the stores like a monster. With a tank and a squad that can't be stop, No Limit held the charts for several years until Hot Boyz took over with members such as +Lil Wayne +LIL TURK B.G. and Juvenile.

DMX came in hard with the Ruff Ryders anthem, shortly after he released one of his best album ever "Flesh Of My Flesh." Talk about a album to just let play, now this is it...Real Talk. You don't have to speak on Nelly and Snoop Dogg, for you see they still speak for themselves.

Eminem is labeled as one of the hottest artist of all times. He came out with hot bars and tactical vocals. With +DR Engineering behind him, there was no touching him to begin with.

What If Biggie and Tupac Were Still Alive?


If Biggie and Tupac were still alive, would half the rappers that's in the music industry be there? Would Jay-Z or Nas gotten as far as they did?

What if both artist would be less relevant if they were alive? Many say their deaths cause the impact of there music being as great as it is, but I feel otherwise.

Tupac's All Eyez on Me album was one of the greatest albums of the 90's if you ask me. All cultures was buying this album and it sold through the roof. Shakur has sold over 75 million records worldwide, so think how many it would be if he never was killed.

Death sells records. As sales of posthumous albums by murdered stars the Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur and Selena have shown, it is increasingly easy to become No. 1 with a bullet.

For instance, the Notorious B.I.G.'s "Life After Death" album, released just two weeks after B.I.G. (Christopher Wallace, a k a Biggie Smalls) was gunned down in Los Angeles, sold 685,000 copies the first week.

In the week after Smalls's death, about 10,000 copies of his 1994 debut, "Ready to Die," were sold, now compare that to Tupac Shakur, who sold 67,000 records in the week following his murder.

Would Tupac and Biggie be considered GOAT rappers if they weren’t killed? What if they were still alive today, would there be mumble rappers? Just think. would the industry have to search so hard for that next big hit? Would album sales have fallen?

Do you think Tupac and Biggie would have settled the beef? How much would be different? Would they still be remembered and praised the same way they are now?

Jay-Z has become one of the biggest legends in the history of hip-hop, but that definitely doesn’t mean everyone has to like him. He’s been no stranger to a big list of feuds, with people from Nas to Tupac. There’s a reason for that. He hasn’t always been a titan of the industry like he is now.
