Hip hop is a genre that emerged in South Bronx, New York, in the 70s. Since then, it has spread and gained popularity worldwide. The music mainly involves different key stylistic elements such as rapping, sampling, scratching, and beat-boxing. The vocal style is quite similar to rap music. Hip hop music, which was originally considered as a way to express feelings in times of turmoil by many African Americans, is today an inevitable aspect of the club or party music.

From the time of its origin till now, many amazing songs have come from some great hip hop artists like Eminem, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Justin Timberlake, etc. So to pick out a few can be a near-impossible task.
