Is Hip Hop Music Art

Is Hip Hop Music Art


 


 

Do you count as hip hop music art? This question is usually raised because arogant uncle Tom types want to show their status that they most likely kissed behind for. But today we will answer the question concisely through words and video. The point of this mission is to squash the notion that urban music cant be a part of the conversation of the greats in music. Hip hop music has its great artists to lay claim to in the same way pop has laid claim to the greatest music artist of all time (Mj). Hip hop music art has given rise to artists like 2pac, and the great thing about him was what he rapped about and how he brought that awareness to those individuals that were ready for it, using the hip hop platform. Believe it or not alot of music artists in the 80s and 90s was bringing awareness to the community with their music, and the music was more like poetry. In fact most of those hip hop music art ist will tell you that they were poets. Poems envoke feelings and tend to have a mood itself.

I added this definition from wikipedia: 

Art is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts – artworks, expressing the author’s imaginative or technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power.[1][2] In their most general form these activities include the production of works of art, the criticism of art, the study of the history of art, and the aesthetic dissemination of art.

So based off the wikipedia definition criticizing art or studying the history of it is a form of art in itself. Hip hop music is indeed an artform, dancing is also an artform, once it is recorded the medium for playback is created as an artifact (e.g. dvd, or mp3 player, etc). When a rap artist (as they are sometimes professionally referred to) says rhyming words in a rhythmic fashion with a musical accompaniment it becomes music, once its recorded and delivered (no matter what platform it is) it then becomes art, (based off the definition) so dont shoot me im just the messenger.

So to rap this up : (get it? wrap this up. Never mind) for all the nay sayers out there who want to tell us our craft isnt worth it tell them to visit this page. They may have all the reasons in the world why they think hip hop is not art, but we dont get paid to think we get paid for what we know. What we know is based on facts, and all we are doing is presenting facts that will allow you to make an educated decision about what to believe so you can know.

Please feel free to comment and share. What do you think? Is hip hop music art. What is it if not.

Thanks for visiting family Peace.

new hip hop music true stoner

New Hip Hop Music TruE Stoner by Henni

New Hip Hop Music

TruE Stoner by Henni

Welcome to new hip hop music TruE Stoner from Music artist Henni album not yet titled. Henni is a charismatic individual with a talent for the craft and business side of the hip hop music scene. Henni was interviewed in person by our producer who asked some of the highlight questions any fan would want to know. Henni has gotten his name because he says he like to turn up, and whenever he shows up to the party he always has the henny with him and a oz to blow. So his name was forced upon him in a way but it also came with other monikers like the yacman and the life of the party along with other party animal name one may acquire. Not only is his name a representation of the kind of experience you can expect to get when you follow Henni, but his new hip hop music true stoner is a representation of that lifestyle as well.

Henny let us know that its not hard to make songs about things you already like to do in your day to day life anyway, and that is the angle Henni uses when approaching the tracks he creates. His passion is not really the music, which is what makes the music that much more interesting. Henni told us that he got more excited when he could bring the crowd together to follow him and what he was doing. He said he would go to college campuses where he wasnt well known and put on a show that was so resonant that even the racist whites wanted to be apart of what he was doing. Henni is the show man and based off what we encountered from Henni he puts on a hell of a show.

Although he is just starting he is gaining ground in what he is doing very fast. He is very smart and observant when it comes to wanting to learn something he doesnt know. This is one of his strenghths because he understands that knowledge is power. This is one of the reason why this artist stands in a different light. He atests that he has learned the business of music from being around friends and graduates who do it as a living. He says he absorbs advice from those smarter than he and he uses the knowledge he gets from these sources to combine with his real talents to make masterpieces.

New Hip Hop Music True Stoner

His tru E stoner movement is also gaining traction along with his branding efforts to promote his idea of a party, (which is also my idea of a party.) He says “who doesnt drink and smoke? Everybody does, so when we party we make sure we got the drink and the smoke”.  So just to make sure you are prepared, if you show up to a party Henni will be at just know that it is going to be that type of party.

Old school hip hop as a tool to educate

Old School Hip Hop.

 

Teaching With Raps

Using old school hip hop as a tool to educate is an idea, but how viable is it? The best way to understand the answer to this question is to examine the era in which old school hip hop is referring to. When we speak of old school hip hop we think of the 90s. In the 90s the atmosphere was rich and the air was potent, you could smell the fresh breeze as it blew day and night, and it was soothing. This is the mood experienced when imaging the grooves of 90s hip hop music, its a crisp fresh feeling. Old school hip hop is a staple in the music game even today. Not to say that it was the best or better than any other version or style of music in history. It is to say that if old school hip hop has made its mark in the music game then we have to examine it deeper and understand why.

 

Its most prominent feature was its enlightening abilities, or the ability to be able to communicate to an audience willing to listen. When delivering vocals with musical arrangments music can get dangerous because the vocals come attached with a message. The danger in being able to deliver messages with music lies in the fact that the music can influence thoughts and provoke actions. Its dangerous to the racist white surpremacist because it allows all these different cultures to follow their own standard. Thus making the agenda of any one world anything impossible. Its dangerous to us if the messages being delivered make you go against your future self and well being. Each culture has their own music influences and set of artists that they follow, and a foreign culture may never hear of them.

Each culture would think independently

When we use music to deliver empowering enlightening messages, like the era of old school hip hop we develop our critical thinking skills. As we listen to different songs of the experiences of the different authors who create them, we develop these situations in our mind. We develop these situations in such a way that if we are ever involved in a situation similar to what we envisioned in the song, we already have a plan ready to deal with that particular situation. Just as most of us would say, “it would be a wise thing to do to listen to as many of these wise situations as possible to be ready for whatever may come”. Or maybe it will make our air feel more crisp. Lol

Affirmations is the Word I was Looking For

So in closing, the music you listen to does influence your thoughts wheather you know it or not. The wise thing to do is to listen to music based on good old fashion old school hip hop or hidden knowledge to influence economic power and great wealth as affirmations. Dont take it lightly, examine your situation and test it. Do you do what the guy in the song is doing, or is he doing what you are doing? And, would you be doing it (if you are doing it) if the music was not talking about it?

whats beef

Whats Beef? Video!

Video! Whats Beef?

In this video i explain whats beef by desrcibing what beef is not. Beef is not bickering and arguing amongst each other. Together we are supposed to build a world that we are comfortable with together, meaning if one person is unhappy we have to scrap the idea and find common ground amongst the majority. While we all struggle to find a buck to buy food with we never admit we have the same struggle, mostly we argue and compare our struggles with the struggles of others like to have a ranking. Instead we should put all differences aside and thrive amongst each other. The blacks with the blacks the whites with the whites the Japanese with the Japnese and so forth. So what is beef? There is no such thing as beef, its created as a means for one person to attack another as as excuse to hurt others. Beef in my book is excluding the attackers from activities. Banning them from the presence of goodness no matter how much they can give in terms of financial treats. We have to stop accepting the treats as this is the true beef. Knowledge Versus Ignorance. We beef with ourselves and project our feelings on to our enemies because its easy to shift the blame.
