Hip-hop started in 1973 in the Bronx; today it is one of the most popular genres in the world and a dominant force in popular culture. Although hip-hop has several elements that can be found in other genres, such as deejaying and dancing, the stylistic difference in hip-hop is rap music (or emceeing), where the vocal delivery is performed, usually in a rhyming pattern with a musical component. Artists such as Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Nas, Lauryn Hill, Queen Latifah, and Lil’ Kim are living icons who have paved the way for the newer generation of artists.
