Hip Hop, Rap/Hip Hop
Rap and hip hop have their roots in West African rhythmic storytelling. Whether a hip hop artist is rapping about his grandmother, the night he got too drunk to drive, or cleaning out his closet, the beat and the poetry of rap lyrics will make you want to sit down and listen – or rap along! Listen live to hip hop and rap stations from around the world. This frenetic, beat-driven genre full of incredibly talented artists will leave your chin on the ground if you aren't careful; the number of words, the wild slant rhymes, and the rapid rhythms are awe-inspiring!
