RJD2 - Deadringer (2002). DJ Shadow’s innovative sample arrangements inspired countless producers and musicians. Layered and musical as hell but at the same time Hip Hop to its core, Endtroducing simply is the best instrumental Hip Hop album, ever. Cuts like Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt, Midnight In A Perfect World, Changeling and Mutual Slump are highlights, but the whole album is timeless.
That greatness has been decided according to a few key guidelines. It was a landmark album for hip-hop, becoming the first Southern LP to earn a coveted five-mic score from The Source. The project advanced the genre to a place void of established notions, inspiring an entire generation of artists like Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar. Before it did all that, though, it secured Atlanta, and the rest of the South, a spot alongside New York and Los Angeles at hip-hop’s big boy table. Roughly 500 miles southwest of Atlanta, another hip-hop empire was rising up in New Orleans.
Hip-hop music originated in the late 60s of the 20th century and continues to evolve to the present day. That what began more than 30 years ago, boiled over into a particular movement and culture. Hip-hop culture originated in New York among black and Latino urban. He is considered to be one of the founders of hip-hop. Kool Herc became that, what later became known as "DJ". In Jamaica, the DJ was a "master" of the music system, which evolved around the lives of youth. He arranged parties, made an interesting speech-feast into the microphone. Soon he became known as MC ( "master of ceremony") - he gathered music plates, played and announced them. And when a DJ, besides making music, announced some rythmic text it became known as the word "rap".
Old School Hip Hop. As rapping became more popular, more DJ and MC duos formed. As the competition grew, DJs began improving their beats by using techniques like sampling short drum breaks and scratching. MCs also began improving their raps by using more complex rhymes and by developing flow, or the ability to rap with a good sense of rhythm and a natural flowing style. The most successful styles of the 90s were the hardcore rap of New York and the gangsta rap and G-Funk of Los Angeles. New York's Wu-Tang Clan created one of the first hardcore styles when they rapped about gangster life over swinging hip hop beats with samples from martial-arts movies. In 1994 a young rapper named Nas released his first album Illmatic. Its loose mid-tempo beats, jazzy samples and Nas' poetic rapping made Illmatic one of hip hop's greatest albums. Beginning in 1979, the Reagan decade is counted down with each years pop hits, underground club classics, and obscure gems.
Hip-hop has evolved each year since its birth, not only lyrically, but sonically. Here are the best hip-hop producers, from the genre's beginnings to today. Robinson may have ended up as one of the most reviled businesspeople in hip-hop, but her story didn’t start that way. Best known at the time for singing Love Is Strange, she was a music business lifer who wanted to start a new label with her husband Joe, with a loan from notorious music biz gangster Morris Levy. The former South Bronx DJ revolutionized the art of record sampling by excising specific chunks from the finest soul records and turning them into fresh rhythms-somehow using the limitations of the SP-1200 sampler to infuse his production with a sense of freedom. Listen past the minimalism of Ultramag’s Funky and ingest the marble cake of subtle arrangements; hear the drums’ pugilism on Ego Trippin’.
