Series Summary

Hip-hop culture is based mainly on music and dance. Hip-hop has developed new styles and specific moves and techniques, but the cornerstone of the style is undoubtedly break dancing. Over time, that so-called old school way of dancing and participating in hip-hop culture has evolved into many different off-shoots. Funk dancing, popping and locking, jigging, freaking, krump, and hyphy are examples of types of hip-hop dance. Each style contains certain moves that distinguish it from other forms. Hip-hop is also a form of music heavily based on spoken-word poetry and rap. In this free video series on rap and hip-hop recording, Christian recording artist R.O.C. offers insight from his decade-long career to help newcomers start a record label, put down sweet rhymes and lyrics, and find a music contract. He gives would-be hip-hop stars ideas for becoming the next big thing and what to look for in a music producer.
