What Is Hip Hop?

Hip Hop is a subculture that merges English and Spanish-speaking Caribbean cultures with the African-American culture.

The Five Elements of Hip Hop

When Hip Hop culture first appeared, it had five elements, or expressions. Since its expansion into diverse sectors of society, more elements have been added, but the first five expressions are still its core. These elements are Drawing or Graffiti, Beatboxing, MC-ing, DJ-ing and Dancing. Hip Hop is a community-developed, therapeutic treatment for the common problems confronting youth of the inner city: poverty, crime, unemployment, broken families, etc. Hip Hop uses art, which was not present in the schools, to provide an outlet for creative expression.
