    West Coast Rap. West Coast Rap dominated the hip-hop scene for the middle section of the '90s, making gangsta rap into a popular phenomenon and establishing Dr. Dre as one of the most influential figures in rap history. Still, even if Dre's patented G-funk defined the West Coast sound and style for many, California's rap scene was a great deal more diverse.

    As it was originally known, hip hop was a movement in New York City in the late 1970s and early 1980s. It revolved around four key areas: MCing (now known as rapping), DJing, graffiti art and b-boying (breakdancing). While all four areas were important, the two that we will focus on are MCing and DJing, as they have the most relevance to both to audio and hip hop. Hip hop’s roots come from a DJ scratching a record to create a looped beat while an MC raps along to the beat. While much has changed over the years, the essential idea of rapping to a looped beat is still the foundation for most hip hop songs. Many music producers still follow these old techniques, loading up an old soul record and creating a new track. However, hip hop advanced beyond this in 1983 when Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonic Force began using synthesizers and drum machines to create entirely new tracks. Excerpt from Afrika Bambaataa - Lookin' For The Perfect Beat While there is much that took place along with...

    In hip hop, there is remarkable freedom when making music. However, there are some fundamental elements that are found in nearly every hip hop song. The first, and far-and-away most important element is drums. The drums lay the foundation for the track, and give the artist a rhythm to work with. Many of the top producers have their own drum libraries that they swear by, giving them their unique sound. Producers such as Timbaland, and The Neptunes are famous for their unorthodox drum sounds and rhythms. Excerpt from Snoop Dogg - Drop It Like It's Hot The second most important part of hip hop is the use of loops. As with much of popular music (as opposed to classical music), the both musical components and structural elements are looped or repeated in patterns, giving hip hop a coherent feel. This is quite important, and it’s the main reason that sampling works with hip hop so well. Taking a previous song, using turntables or a sampler to take a piece from that song, and then replayin...

    East Coast is probably the hardest to broadly define these days, as the underground movement in NYC is still quite prominent, and they rely largely on sampling. Much of their music is produced using an MPC. As far as more popular sound goes, they definitely aim far more for up tempo, more dance style tracks. Excerpt from Marco Polo - Nostalgia South is all about two things. The first, is dirty south style music, relying heavily on horns and snare rolls. This style of music is probably best heard through artists like Young Jeezy, giving the music a slow, southern drawl. Excerpt from Young Jeezy - Put On The second style from the south is the simple club song. Differing from East Coast sound, the South’s club sound is much more simplistic, and usually has a certain dance that is meant to be associated with it. Songs like “Walk it Out”, “2 Step”, “Crank Dat”, etc, show this style. Excerpt from Unk - Walk It Out The Midwest is more of a newcomer into the mainstream music scene for hip h...

    Wrapping up our overview of the hip hop genre, let’s summarize some key points: 1. Drums are important! If you spend most of your time on one part of the track, focus on your drums. There are many songs that don’t have anything but drums and vocals, so give them their due attention. 2. Looping is the backbone of hip hop. It gives the music a coherent feel and helps form your track. 3. Experiment with various instruments. There are many instruments out there, so don’t just stick to the same ones for each track. While I didn’t mention this above, it’s also important to note that the less dynamic your rapper (or singer) is, the more you will probably have to compensate with instrumentation. For example, if you have a singer (or a rapper and a singer) for a track, odds are you can skimp on the instrumentals, as the singing will add most of the flavor to your track. However, if you only have a rapper, whose vocals are somewhat dry, you’ll have to add more instrumentation to make the song...
