Culture through the history
Hip-Hop is more than just a movement, it is a culture. A culture of people who stand for what they believe in. One of the factors that symbolizes connection to this culture is a Bling Bling jewelry. Bling term is a slang popularized in Hip-Hop, used for the chains and other jewelry worn by members of the culture. Dana Dane used this term describing a sound effect of tinkling bells used in cartoon to demonstrate shininess and brightness of gold jewelry, pendants, money, and gems. Later on in 1999 Cash Money Millionaires released a song “Bling Bling”, which is exactly where the popularization began. Many famous brands began to use the term in their advertisements. Later on it became a trade mark for many famous singers in Hip-Hop culture.
Trend of the truth
One of the greatest and most influential rappers of all time is Tupac Shakur. His albums are one of the best-selling ones in the United States and worldwide. The legacy of Tupac is more than music, he invested a deep meaning in his songs with his own perspective on life. The rapper was against racism and social pressure, and he was judging politics with no fear. In his song “Changes”, Tupac called people to unite together and have love and respect for each other no matter what skin color they are.
The legend of Hip-Hop was killed in 1996. In 2011 the FBI released an information that some political organizations in the US were making threats to Tupac and other rappers, and they could be potential murderers. Many other legends, such as Easy E and B. I. G. in their songs told about how society changes, how people put labels on each other, and under mysterious circumstances they were killed as well. Today, some of the Hip-Hop singers are often politically charged for the truth in their songs. Ever since hip-hop culture began, it has been in horrible relationships with politicians. Hip-Hop music raises a topic of problems (e.g. injustice and poverty) that are happening in the society.
Wild and free
Hip-Hop culture is a culture of people who had to go through many trials in life. Music and art free them, they do not put boundaries of what they can or cannot do. They express themselves; their hearts are devoted to this. People of this culture are wild, free, and disobedient generations that never agree to mix with the crowd. Hip-hop is when people are not being afraid of anyone or anything. Hip-Hop is a life style, passion, love, and self-expression!
