#5480S- Hip Hop - Set of 4

In the 1970s a dynamic culture and art movement arose from the African American and African Caribbean neighborhoods in the Bronx, New York City. The term hip-hop often refers to just the music but is also includes other related activities that developed at the same time: rapping, DJing, break dancing, and graffiti art. Before hip-hop music was heard on radio in 1979, teenagers developed hip-hop for neighborhood fun, storytelling, and to address pressing social issues. Hip-hop has evolved over the years to become a global phenomenon with artists from across the world contributing to the genre and telling their own stories. These four stamps honor the hip-hop phenomenon that began over 40 years ago. The spirited music, dance, and art movement has greatly influenced American and global popular culture ever since. The stamp art features photographs that show the four elements of hip hop: MCing (rapping), b-boying (breakdancing), DJing (turntablism), and graffiti art. Scott 5480-83 Hip Hop
