Top 55 HipHop Quotes That’ll Make You Stop and Think


Hip-hop is not just a music genre; it’s a revolution that has continued to evolve as it started from where else but the East and West Coast shores of the United States of America. From what started as backyard rapping and singing get-togethers, hip-hop has immortalized not just songs, dances, trends but artists, celebrities, and groups. In the 1970s, hip-hop was being brewed by the likes of DJ Kool Herk and Grandmaster Flash in the South Bronx. From being an underground movement, it became mainstream through the recordings of Bootleg and Sugarhill in downtown New York. Soon, Run-D.M.C. would rule the waves as Public Enemy wielded hip-hop as a force of bringing change and consciousness in what was happening in the American streets. These all led to hip-hop giving birth to gangsta music.

With hip-hop becoming a force that has ruled the airwaves and the mindset and consciousness of people, other names would soon follow, including the liked of Jay-Z, Puff Daddy, and Notorious B.I.G. They rose together with the women who made one successful hip-hop record after another. There was Queen Latifah, Monie Love, Sal-N-Pepa, Lauryn Hill and now Lil’Kim. The list actually goes on and on, and the money, record deals, fame and fortune of these people behind hip-hop continue to grow. It could be said that hip-hop started from the blues and as songs of struggles from the poor African slaves that came to America. Whatever the case or history maybe, hip-hop resonates with people whatever race, religion, or belief system they may have or be!
