For many reasons I have strayed from this topic. However, the time is nigh.

Check this:

Clive Campbell aka DJ Kool Herc. Known to most as the pioneer of a musical genre called Hip-Hop (Rap)
Hip hop as music and culture formed during the 1970s in New York City from the multicultural exchange between African-American youth from the United States and young immigrants and children of immigrants from countries in the Caribbean.[26] Hip hop music in its infancy has been described as an outlet and a voice for the disenfranchised youth of marginalized backgrounds and low-income areas, as the hip hop culture reflected the social, economic and political realities of their lives
In the 1970s, block parties were increasingly popular in New York City, particularly among African-American, Caribbean and Latino youth residing in the Bronx. Block parties incorporated DJs, who played popular genres of music, especially funk and soul music. Due to the positive reception, DJs began isolating the percussive breaks of popular songs. This technique was common in Jamaican dub music,[30] and was largely introduced into New York by immigrants from the Caribbean, including DJ Kool Herc, one of the pioneers of hip hop.
(Note Baby Huey's sample from Ennio Morricone)

N1ter, thanks for chiming-in and taking a peak at my... (for lack of a better word) "eclectic" music section here at the Pownd :)

I do agree, it is hard to find good hip-hop to listen to in general, especially lately.

Once the spark ignited the Genre, it seems like everyone came out of the woodwork to try their hand at either MC'ing or Dj'ing (As I am typing this, it occurs that even I have a few tracks Hip-hop tracks floating around)'.

As a result, the game was flooded with all types of nonsense and it can be tenuous to separate the "wheat from the chaff".

The good news is/was, from all the noise, a good number of artists became diamonds in the rough.

I wont bore you with my list of straight-up bad-ass Mc's or Dj's (Many of which you, yourself has turned me onto :D ) but they are out there.

We just have to keep digging in the crates :)

I used to love me some hip hop back in the day, but really don't stray too far from country these days. But with the same idea in mind, country just ain't the country I grew up with...there's just too much "pop" in today's country. Luckily I can tune into Amazon and listen to specific decades of said genre OR buy more Chris Stapleton music.
