The initial hip hop songs started out by the artists dubbing over reggae music. They were rhymes set to beats, and a new form of dance moves emerged, to groove to this funky music genre.
Hip hop music involves rapping, looping, freestyle rap, scratching, DJing, beatboxing (vocal percussion), and sampling. Plus, it is undoubtedly incomplete without hip hop dance. The music started out with only breakdancing/b-boying, but now includes locking, popping, and krumping as well. Overall, the music and dance emerged as a means of expression of the African-Americans, and became popular in the 1970s. Today, over 40 years after the evolution of hip hop dance, new styles are born everyday with a multitude of reality shows focusing on the best dance acts in the world.
