East Coast Rap - New York Style
At the dawn of the Hip Hop era, all Rap was East Coast Rap. All of Rap's most important early artists were based in the New York City area. With a grooving, poetic lyrical flow, East Coast Hip Hop and Rap continues to incite and inspire rappers throughout the world.

West Coast Rap - The Rise of Gangsta & G-Funk
The West Coast Rap scene began to emerge in the late 1980's and then dominated much of the Hip Hop music scene during the 90's. The Gangsta Rap subgenre and P-Funk subgenres dominated radio play and sales, as such pioneering artists as Snoop Dog, Dr. Dre, and Tupac Shakur rose to prominence.

Electro-Orchestral Hip Hop
Fusing orchestral instrumentation with cool Hip Hop drum grooves, Electro-Orchestral Hip Hop is a sophisticated blend of street attitude with a luxurious and sophisticated sound, creating a versatile new subgenre of Hip Hop.

Action Thriller Hip Hop
With a made-for-movies vibe, Action Thriller Hip Hop music has a definite dramatic edge, perfect for crime-in-progress scenes, international thrillers, action flicks, drug deals, street thugs, low riders, gangsta wars, and much more.

Pop-Rap is a combination of Hip Hop beats and Raps with strong melodic hooks, which are usually featured as part of the chorus section in a standard pop-song structure. Pop-Rap tends to be less aggressive and lyrically complex than most street-level Hip Hop, smoother and with more sophisticated production qualities.

Hip House - Dance Meets Hip Hop
Hip House is a musical genre that mixes elements of various dance styles including House, Disco, Trance and other dance elements with Hip Hop sounds and rhythms. The style rose to prominence during the 1980s in New York and Chicago and continues to be an important commercial Hip Hop subgenre today.

Dirty South - The Coolest Crunk
The rise of Dirty South, also known as Southern Rap, or Crunk, came about in the 1990s in the southern US, in cities such as New Orleans, Houston, Dallas, Nashville, Atlanta, Memphis, Charlotte, Birmingham, Orlando, Tampa, Miami, Jacksonville, Jackson, Baton Rouge and elsewhere.

Midwest Rap and Hip Hop - Rap From the Heartland
Midwest Hip Hop rap is a fast-paced style of rapping that contrasts with its East Coast, West Coast and Southern counterparts. Its first dose of national popularity in the mid-90s was associated with fast-paced styles of rappers such as; Twista (Chicago), Tech N9ne (Kansas City, Missouri), Bone Thugs- n-Harmony (Cleveland), and Atmosphere (Minneapolis).

Latin Rap and Hip Hop
Note to be outdone, innovative young Latino rappers picked up on the Hip Hop and Rap movement and took it to a whole new level. Mixing Spanish lyrics and various Latin music subgenres with Afro-American beats, Latin Rap and other new Hip Hop subgenres were born.

Reggaeton is a form of urban music that originated in Panama in the 1990s and became popular with Latin American youth after its mainstream exposure in 2004 as it spread to North American, European and Asian audiences. Reggaeton is a cool blend of multiple latin genres and Hip Hop, R&B and Electronica.

World Hip Hop and Rap
Hip Hop has exploded around the world, into every country and region, as the most significant new music development since the advent of Rock and Roll two decades before. In many countries it has matured to levels similar to what is heard in the US, with some cultures echoing developments in the US while others put their own unique ethnic twist on the music.

Old School Rap - The Original Mix
Old School Rap is the style of the very first rap artists who emerged in the 1970s and 80s. Old school is easily identified by its relatively simple raps -- most lines take up approximately equal amounts of time, and the rhythms of the language rarely twisted around the beats of the song.

Underground Hip Hop
Underground Rap is hardcore lyrical Hip Hop that pushes musical boundaries and has lyrics that are more inventive than gangsta clichés. It has little regard for mainstream conventions, and celebrates its independent off-the-chain status. With lyrics that are often explicit, this music is not for the timid or naive.
