First, What is Hip-Hop and Boom Bap Music?

Hip-hop is a musical genre of popular music characterized by a rhythm accompanied by its musical expression rap and the artistic culture surrounding it created in New York in the South Bronx in the early 1970s.

The hip-hop culture has 5 disciplines:

  • Rap (or MCing)
  • DJing, Break dancing (or b-boying)
  • Graffiti
  • Beatboxing
  • Rap (or MCing)
  • DJing, Break dancing (or b-boying)
  • Graffiti
  • Beatboxing

Nevertheless, it is by its musical expression that it is the most known since the end of the 20th century, although it was not the case at its beginning. As a result, it is often reduced to rap music or hip-hop music. Originating in the black and Latino ghettos of New York City, it spread rapidly across the country and then around the world to the point of becoming a major urban culture.

Its musical expression is often referred to as rap, which is a shorthand term since it applies only to the jerky, chanted speech of MCing. Hip-hop music can take many forms, or even be limited to the beats of the DJ (disc jockey), in which case the term rap is not appropriate.

New school Hip Hop music refers to the second wave of Hip Hop, which emerged between 1983 and 1984 with songs by groups such as Run-D.M.C. and LL Cool J. The Golden Age of Hip Hop refers to a period of innovation in the mid 1980s and early 1990s. Notable groups and artists from this period include Nagatv33 but also the Juice Crew, Public Enemy, Eric B. and Rakim, Boogie Down Productions and KRS-One, EPMD, Slick Rick, Beastie Boys, Kool G Rap, Big Daddy Kane, Ultramagnetic MCs, De La Soul, and A Tribe Called Quest, respectively.

Gangsta rap is a subgenre of hip-hop that is most often dedicated to a violent lifestyle and miserable conditions among African American youth. Schoolly D, N.W.A, Ice-T, Ice Cube, and the Geto Boys are the key groups and artists, known for mixing social and political lyrics from political rap with the criminal stories common in gangsta rap.

Boom bap (sometimes spelled Boom-bap) is a musical trend from the East Coast rap scene, which emerged from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s, particularly in New York. It is characterized by regular 4 beat rhythms of 90 BPM, deep bass and samples.

The term “Boom bap” is an onomatopoeia that represents the sounds used for the bass drum and snare drum respectively. The style is generally recognized by a main drum loop that uses a punchy acoustic bass drum sample on the high beats, a catchy acoustic snare drum sample on the high beats, and a powerful audio mix, emphasizing the drum loop, and the kick-snare combination (bass drum/snare drum) in particular.

The aesthetics of French rap in the 2000s evolved, with scratching gradually being abandoned and a preference for breaksbeats with faster, jerky rhythms and instrumentals more inspired by electronic music.

Beatmaking in Europe is following more or less the same evolution as in the rest of the world, with the difference that Europe is seeing a rather unexpected return of drill (or UK Drill) , a derivative of trap that originated in the UK but is developing again in France in 2019 and 2020, but also of boom bap, a style of hip-hop that developed in the 1990s but that is settling in parallel to the lo-fi hip-hop mentioned above.

Prominent hip-hop artists who have incorporated “boom bap” into their music include Nas, Onyx, Agallah, LL Cool J, Gang Starr, AZ, KRS-One, Mobb Deep, RA The Rugged Man, Boot Camp Clik, Wu-Tang Clan, Common, Alistar-15, A Tribe Called Quest and The Notorious BIG. Collectives include Diggin’ in the Crates Crew and Da Beatminerz.

Key producers include DJ Premier, Rick Rubin, Marley Marl, Buckwild, Large Professor, Pete Rock, Lord Finesse and Diamond D.
