What is Hip-Hop? (with pictures)

Hip-hop is a cultural movement best known for its impact on music in the form of the musical genre of the same name. It has its origins in the Bronx, in New York City, during the 1970s, mostly among African Americans but with some influence from the Latin American population of the area as well. The culture has gone from being a relatively underground style to being a major style throughout the world, and it has been commercialized and popularized, especially in the United States. The four traditional pillars of hip-hop are DJing, rapping, breakdancing, and graffiti art. Five additional pillars are sometimes added: hip-hop fashion, beatboxing, hip-hop slang, street knowledge, and street entrepreneurship.

(Revolution) (revolution) (Revolution) (revolution).....

Brothers and sisters
Let me share with you some news
As I sit on my plush couch
Watching the news

There has been a rude awakening
That I have marched until my feet have bled
And I have rioted until they called the feds

What's left - My conscience said
What's left - My conscience said

 

As I look out my window
I see the little ones
Playing amongst each other
With their waterguns

In pure poverty
Generations of good people
In cycles of poverty
It bothers me, so I ask myself


I say, "Are you doing as much as you can for the struggle?" (no)
"Am I doing as much as I can for the struggle? (no)

Then why do I cry when
My people are in trouble (yo)
My ancestors slapped me
In the face and said (go)
 
Harriet Tubman
Told me to get on up
Marcus Garvey said the negro
You get on up

My brother Malcolm X...
Need I name more?
It ain't like we never
Seen blood before


Come on, let's talk
Revolution, now (revolution)
All my people say (revolution)
All my brothers say (revolution)
All my sisters say (revolution)

All my people say (revolution)
Hey (revolution)
All my people say (revolution)
All my people say (revolution)
 
I see blood on one
Malcolm as one shot em
I see tears cause now it
Seems that we forgot him

I seen years of people
Searching for solutions
Restitution, excuses
No more, no more confusion!

Come on, come on
Let's talk right, let's talk right
Talk up, talk up, but
Don't talk up all night!

There's got to be action
If you want satisfaction
If not for yourself
For the young ones
(The children)

The U.N., The U.S
We can't allow you
To tell us a kid in the ghetto
Is not as important as
A kid in Bosnia

I ain't with it (uh huh)
Just forget it (no)
You can't even debate
If you don't understand
Our situation (come on)

You don't want us to go
Get a gun now, do you?
You don't like to see
People running around now

Yet and still you wanna
Live like 9-Oh-2-1-Oh
While we scream out
(Yo) freedom

Five grandmothers ago
They erased it
We must acquire a taste for
Something we've never tasted

So, people, let us
Wet our palates (word)
It's either the bullet or the ballot
Come now (whoo)

Revolution now (revolution)
All my people say (revolution)
All my brothers say (revolution)
All my sisters say (revolution)
Hey (revolution)

All my people say (revolution)
Let's talk about a Revolution
All my people say (revolution)
All my people say
Let's talk about a revolution
Hey (revolution)

(Revolution) (revolution)
(Revolution) (revolution)......

[Aerle Taree]
Now, see, I understand
What my people have said
They tell me to fight
Fight for the ancestors
Who are dead

For Harriet Tubman
Move organization
David Walker
The Black Panthers
Kwame Nkrumah
Marcus Garvey, Jane Pittman
Revolution

(Revolution) (revolution) (Revolution) (revolution)......

 

 

Lauryn Hill, Ex-Factor

It could all be so simple
But you'd rather make it hard
Loving you is like a battle
And we both end up with scars
Tell me, who I have to be
To get some reciprocity
No one loves you more than me
And no one ever will

Is this just a silly game
That forces you to act this way?
Forces you to scream my name
Then pretend that you can't stay
Tell me, who I have to be
To get some reciprocity
No one loves you more than me
And no one ever will

No matter how I think we grow
You always seem to let me know
It ain't workin', It ain't workin' (No, it ain't workin')
And when I try to walk away
You'd hurt yourself to make me stay
This is crazy, this is crazy (This is crazy, uh-huh!)

I keep letting you back in
How can I explain myself?
As painful as this thing has been
I just can't be with no one else
See I know what we've got to do
You let go, and I'll let go too
'Cause no one's hurt me more than you
And no one ever will

No matter how I think we grow
You always seem to let me know
It ain't workin', It ain't workin' (It ain't workin')
And when I try to walk away
You'd hurt yourself to make me stay
This is crazy, this is crazy

Care for me, care for me!
I know you care for me!
There for me, there for me!
Said you'd be there for me!

Cry for me, cry for me!
You said you'd die for me!
Give to me, give to me!
Why won't you live for me?!

Care for me, care for me!
You said you care for me!
There for me, there for me!
Said you'd be there for me!

Cry for me, cry for me!
You said you'd die for me!
Give to me, give to me!
Why won't you live for me?!

Care for me, care for me!
You said you care for me!
There for me, there for me!
Said you'd be there for me!

Cry for me, cry for me!
You said you'd die for me!
Give to me, give to me!
Why won't you live for me?!

Care for me, care for me!
You said you care for me!
There for me, there for me!
Said you'd be there for me!

Give to me, give to me!
Why won't you live for me?!
Cry for me, cry for me!
You said you'd die for me!
