Hip Hop has been a powerful force since its inception in the late ‘70s. From the early pioneers of street music, such as Grandmaster Flash, Kurtis Blow and The Sugarhill Gang, through the jazz and funk worship of A Tribe Called Quest and Digable Planets, or the aggressive rivalry between the East and West coasts of America during the ‘90s. What started out as something small became a movement and a revolution, that continues to be the voice of each generation with the ever shifting political and social tides.
