Often times when people hear about Hip Hop/Rap music, theyfll paint a picture in their
heads of black men cussing, guns, marijuana, lots of gold,

and girls looking like prostitutes. Parents and teachers put an image in their kidfs head
that Rap music is gbadh, and they donft want their kids

to be influenced by something that is negative. With the way Rap music is advertised in
the US, I would have to agree with that looking at it from an average parentfs point of
view. But what people donft know is that Hip Hop isnft just a type of music, itfs a
culture. Itfs a culture full of original elements, and itfs also a place where people
can show others what theyfve got and who they are. Within this original society called
Hip Hop, there are basically four main elements of MC, Break, Tag, and DJ. And each

is represented by millions of people all over the globe. When the four come together, it
makes Hip Hop music, and people live the music instead of listening to it. MC-ing is what
people know as rapping. The main point of an MC is to make your crowd enjoy your music,
and to send a message out to them. Unlike most

of the lyrics out on the market today, Hip Hop contains meaning and it sends a message to
the listeners. Although those messages might have bad words,and show images of things

thatfs who they are. Their music

represents their area and their people, and itfs no different from a farmer singing about

rappers put out lyrics about what they believe in, their own philosophies, entertaining
others, and although it may seem unlikely, many lyricists seem like Einstein to me. Just
like all of the other geniuses like Newton, Galileo, and musically Jimi, there are MCs
that are geniuses too. What makes those guys remarkable compared to others are their
strength and choice of words, and their flow, or the melody, of their rhymes. I personally
canft relate to the ghetto, guns, and all of that ggangsterh stuff, so I donft listen
to that genre all that much, but there are many elements people can pick up from the Hip
Hop music. There is a whole Japanese Hip Hop scene that is growing bigger and bigger, and
thatfs what I personally live. The next element is Breaking. Breaking is a term used for
dancing, and most people know it as Break Dancing. Although Breaking has become a small
part of the whole dance scene in Hip Hop today, itfs the first form of Hip Hop dances.
People spin on their heads, do handstands, slide with just their hands on the ground, spin
on the floor with their legs spread out, and all
