Why New York Has Always Been Ground Breaking For Hip -hop Artist

 


Although 50, and Jay-Z may wear the crown as kings of New York, there surrounded by a number of thriving rappers like Nas who could make the claim and not be far off.


The Big Apple can also count on Biggie, Rakim, Public Enemy, The Beastie Boys, KRS-One, Mos Def, Slick Rick, Nikki Minaj, Run-D.M.C., Mase, and Wu Tang among its influential children, and that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to rappers from New York.


New York spawned some of the greatest rappers. The enduring spirit of New York hip-hop is unbridled confidence, limitless audacity. New York—and the Bronx specifically—is the birthplace of hip-hop.


The birthplace of hip-hop, mecca of the universe and even “the city that never sleeps” are some of the descriptive phrases that New York City is known for. On a hot summer night in the Bronx in 1973, DJ Kool Herc changed music forever. At his sister's back-to-school party on August 11—44 years ago today—he introduced what's since become recognized as hip-hop to an extremely enthusiastic audience.

What Kind Of Deal Is R. Kelly Former Manager Trying To Make?

 


A former manager for singer R. Kelly, who faces criminal charges of his own, is in the middle of plea negotiations, prosecutors revealed at a status conference Friday.


Donnell Russell was indicted in October on one count of interstate stalking for allegedly contacting an anonymous "Jane Doe" victim in R. Kelly's case "with the intent to harass and intimidate" her and her family, according to the indictment filed in the Eastern District of New York.


He pleaded not guilty to the charge in October, court documents show. Russell was also charged by criminal complaint in the Southern District of New York with threatening physical harm by interstate communication and conspiracy to threaten physical harm after Russell allegedly placed a phone call to a Manhattan theater to prevent the December 4, 2018 screening of "Surviving R. Kelly," according to a criminal complaint. He allegedly told the theater there was an armed person inside, prepared to begin shooting, prosecutors said. His attorney in that case, Annalisa Miron, said Russell pleaded not guilty to those charges.

Judge Makes Racist Comment

Check this out! A Utica City, New York judge was accused of denigrating Blacks and others. Despite his actions, he got to keep his job. Popeo is alleged to have used a racial slur after a session in his court when he asked an African-American attorney if he knew what New York City Blacks call Black people from upstate New York. When the lawyer said he had no response to the question Popeo posed, the judge allegedly said, “country n***ers.”

There have been other accusations against the Popeo, such as in 2011, he twice referred to a prosecutor as a “cigar store Indian” for not being more aggressive in court. Again in 2011, Popeo came under fire after he was criticized for telling a public defender to “shut up” before then lashing out at a defendant who had smirked in the courtroom. “You’re standing there with a grin that I would love to get off the bench and slap off your face,” Popeo bellowed.

Despite the justice’s courtroom antics, the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct decided that Popeo was not being racially insensitive with the Native American insult. As far as the alleged “country n****rs” comment, the Commission concluded that the insults could not be verified because three other witnesses did not hear the remarks, and Popeo did not ‘fess up to making the statement.

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.


Take this journey with me into the world of hip hop as we define all the odds to our culture. Note: When I mention hip hop, I don't mean rap music. They do not fit into the same category as each other.
