Hip Hop is a definition of life. Hip Hop is a culture based on style and creativity. Hip Hop is a unique communication form with society. That gives Hip Hop culture strength, fascination and has captivated young people for 20 years.
Moreover, Hip Hop is a youth culture within the ghettos and that applies today, too. Also the art of graffiti, the battles between DJ’s and later the competitions between break dancers and rappers belong to these power struggles between teenagers.
Baggy pants, urban ghettos, gangster image, graffiti and break dancing. These are all images that one associates with Hip Hop. These days, Hip Hop has become a mainstream phenomenon. Hip Hop artists sell millions of records. For instance, the female rapper Lauryn Hill recently received five Grammy awards for her album "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”. Only a few people know, what Hip Hop really means, how it originated and what it stands for. Hip Hop is an extremely powerful and often underestimated dissident medium. Emerging out of the inner-city ghettos of America’s East Coast, Hip Hop is the voice of the voiceless, and has established itself as the medium of the social outcasts of American society.
After doing my presentation about Hip Hop in English, I decided to write my course work about this kind of youth culture. I am very interested in it and so I have the opportunity to give you more information about the scene. It wasn’t easy to find the most important facts because it is a huge area with much information. The purpose of this course work is to give you an idea about the roots of Hip Hop, as a youth culture, and to demonstrate the effect Hip Hop has on our society.
The Hip Hop history – general information about graffiti, break dancing, skateboarding and rap
To understand the nature and purpose of Hip Hop it is essentially important to look at its roots, cultural hearth and development. Hip Hop originated in the late 1970's in the South Bronx, New York City. The context was the ghetto, an urban environment that is characterized by a high amount of crime, run down housing, police brutality, racial discrimination, and widespread poverty. Black and Latino minorities who continue to suffer from discrimination, social and economical disadvantages to this day, predominantly inhabit this area. These conditions worsened throughout the late 1970's as these urban conurbations started to mutate into super cities. The first rap-record was released by the Sugarhill Gang in 1979. Up to this moment rap could only be played from DJ’s cassettes or from live-records. So rap brought the first financial success and showed an interest in the new music for record industry.
Old School was the first phase in rap-music history from 1979 to 1984. The most famous representatives were also the people who developed the manifestations from rap and Hip Hop. Important representatives are Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Beasy Bee, Africa Bambaataa, Jazzy Five, Soul Sonic Force and more.
In 1983 there originated a new Hip Hop generation, New School. Then the first digital samplers came on to the market. As a result, rap-music sounded more real, more natural and became more complex. The New School is a phenomenon from the East Coast and shaped by New York. Rappers like 2Pac, Snoop Dogg, Def Jam, Run DMC, Public Enemy and LL Cool J belong to this generation.
The Hip Hop history on the West coast began 1980. The West coast-rap became public because of the texts from the violent Hip Hop fashion. At the end of the 1980’s new forms originated: Political Hip Hop (e.g. Public Enemy), Gangsta Rap (e.g. 2Pac) and G-Funk (e.g. Warren G.).

Rap is rooted in Western African music and in the Caribbean tradition of storytelling. To understand the history of rap, you need to know two things:
1. Rap speaks in rhyme to the rhythm of a beat.
2. Hip Hop is a culture, a way of life for a society of people who identify, love and cherish rap, break dancing, Djing and graffiti.
The DJ (disc jockey) develops the sound collages through a so-called sampling technique. This technique uses phrases, sounds of other artists, political speeches or the environmental sounds like gunshots, police sirens and helicopters. They are mounted onto a steady beat that is generated by a drum machine. The atmosphere of the ghetto becomes alive. In addition to that, bridges are built on the traditions of jazz and other forms of music that have a strong black influence. Two people were given credit for the development of this style and the scratching and mixing of two different records into one: DJ Kool Herc and Joseph Sandler, also known as Grandmaster Flash in the late 1970's. The most important part of rap is “rapping” because fans want to hear the lyrics.
The vocalist or MC (master of ceremony) records his rhymes onto the track. His lyrics are often political messages and experiences taken from everyday life in the ghetto. They are outcries against injustice or very emotional, personal topics- mostly telling the story of personal struggle in the ghetto. Rap lyrics literally address problems that exist in the ghetto like AIDS, drugs, police violence, a rotten education system etc. An excellent lyricist is able to achieve a high quality in his lyrics. What makes good lyrics is if they transcend the everyday situation that blacks live in and offer new solutions and hope. Today rap is one of the most potent and successful musical forms of the 20th century.
The visual component of Hip Hop, graffiti, is an artistic expression. At the end of the 1960’s young people from New York had the idea of leaving their names on public surfaces. At the beginning of the 1980’s graffiti appeared in Berlin for the first time. Graffiti finds itself on the thin edge of legality- some consider it art and others to be simply a destruction of private and government property. Also today the opinion of public is that graffiti is only scribble and motivated by vandalism. But sprayers see their work as a creative-artistic act, furthermore, they want to have the recognition on the scene and respect. Consequently, illegality became a source of motivation and inspiration. All in all, graffiti is an artistic means of expression which neither leaves nobody cold nor makes people nervous, it pleases and intrigues.
Break dancing, a radical form of dance that consists of highly acrobatic movements, has been a major element of the Hip Hop culture. It started in New York City in the mid 1970’s and became very commercialized during the 1980’s. Break dancing spread from the Bronx in New York City to the streets of Los Angeles. Gangs needed a means to battle against each other at dance clubs so they could see who had the better dance moves. There are various battles where crews take on each other to win the applause from the public. When break dancing first started, there weren’t any of the crazy moves you find today. This break dance style was like the “moonwalk” which was popularized by James Brown, not by Michael Jackson. Break dancing is called break dancing not because the dancers look like they might break a bone, but because they dance to a type of music called break beat. Another part of break dancing is “popping”. Popping is taken mostly from the ancient art of pantomime such, as you are a robot or move in slow motion. Break-dancers are also called B-Boys or B-Girls.
Skating is a differentiated kind of sport in combination with an urban life-style. The first skateboards appeared at the end of the 1950’s in California. At the beginning of the 1980’s skateboarding became popular in Germany. The driving figure here was Titus Dittmann from Münster, who brought the sport and the associated material to Germany and made it popular. Skating is a sport art and the main point is the control you have over your body and the skilful use of the board. Achievement is also important in the scene. Creativity and aesthetics in movement are main criteria. Skating becomes a daily task & challenge. The cultural synthesis from preparation to performance, requirement for creativity and the motivation for annexation of urban areas constitutes the special attraction of this scene.

Hip Hop in Germany
The existence of Hip Hop in Germany, which has thrived in an independent multifarious way, has happened over a long period of development. Pop-culture as well obviously needs time to strike its own roots. In the 1980's the world-wide break dance wave “sloshed” also over to Germany. Films like “Wildstyle” and “Beatstreet” brought Hip Hop culture into German cinemas and made break dancing and graffiti popular. This trend was relatively fast again forgotten, however a firm scene was left, in which above all migrants could feel “at home”. Since this time Hip Hop parties (so-called Jams) have regularly taken place, where they rap (originally in the English language, however now it is mainly in German). In the early years from 1982 till 1989 there wasn’t any information about Hip Hop in Germany, apart from the first Hip Hop movies and the American rap disks. The Hip Hops had to develop and pick up each technique on their own. Intrigued by the beat and the myths of the metropolitan jungle of New York the European kids particularly singled out break dancing and graffiti. Too new was the sound and too foreign the technique of Black pop-culture. The second Hip Hop wave as of 1986 resulted in the first Do-It-Yourself-experiment with its own rhymes and songs. At the beginning of the 1990’s the first German-speaking raps appeared on record. The crew Fresh Familee from Ratingen belongs to the first commercially successful German Hip Hop volume and they published the first German-language Hip Hop on LP at the beginning of the 1990's. Thereafter, the successes of the Fantastischen Vier have followed in the German Charts, who at first encountered refusal, because there was no scene background in the lyrics of the crew from Stuttgart. However, the Fantastischen Vier are the ones who made the German rap music popular with their music. As a consequence scene sizes such as Cora E. or Advanced Chemistrie have also had some commercial success in Germany. Since the mid 1990's more and more Hip Hop acts have managed it into the heavy rotation of the music transmitters MTV and VIVA, whereby the scene enjoys more and more popularity from young people.
Over the last, the mega success of “Die da” the Fantastischen Vier became the Sugarhill Gang of the German Hip Hop scene. They show that this new music trend can work in the German language as well. Up and coming bands like Fettes Brot can transform their drafts with self-ironical crankiness. Particularly the Hamburg-scenery with crews and rappers like Absolute Beginner or Ferris MC has developed an iridescent variety, which presses ahead with the creative contests. On its long way from the New Yorker suburbs to a more universal music style the German language has given a decisive kick to the pop-music of the 21st century.

The hood rapper ‘Eminem’
17.10.1972 Marshall Bruce Mathers III was born in a suburb of Kansas City. He grew up with his lone mother and because of many relocations Marshall did not make many friends. As a result he applied himself to rap music at the age of ten. In 1985 his family found a longer home in a trailer park in Detroit. At the age of 14 he began to rhyme as Manix respectively M&M in a cellar of a friend. Freestyle battles at the assembly hall or in the schoolyard became his daily routine. Later he chucked in school and survived in badly paid jobs as a warehouse worker. But the real passions of his life were the local rhyme contests. In spite of the white colour of his skin he gained respect as Eminem in the Hip Hop scene of Detroit. After the uncountable freestyle fights in Detroit, Eminem associated himself with the New Jack-Crew in 1994 but then he changed to Soul Intent who published his first Single 1995. Because the guest rapper Proof fell for Eminem they found the clique D-12. Four more members came across D-12, which isn’t strictly a band but a loose collective which supports each other. After the birth of daughter Hailie on 25th December in 1995, the young father was forced to earn money to gain some economic stability for his passion for rap. 1996 he finally is allowed to record a few tapes in a friend’s studio. Still nobody showed much more interest. However, the adamant endurance of the Hip Hop freak opened the door to a radio station for him that takes one song in their program. The broadcast is transmitted across the state and solidifies Eminems reputation as talented mass controller. In 1996 Eminem provided a good performance at MC battles of the rap-Olympics. After the successful event his manager Paul Rosenberg presses the present talent scouts of the Interscope label his demo into the hand. Parallel to it Web Entertainment throws the demo as "Slim the Shady" - EP on the regional market. He raps himself here formally the grind of soul and shows first signs of his current hoodlum status. A few weeks later the producer legend Dr. Dre is so impressed with him that he tries to lure the white insanity-MC in his studio. Chemistry between both tunes immediately and soon thereafter new Songs develop for Eminems actual debut. Dr. Dre takes him even as the first white one for his Aftermath label under contract. The foundation stone for Ems world career is put. Three-quarters a year later the Eminem fever inundates the whole globe unheated from his video "My name is...". The skilful self-production of the civil rebel with mental abysses drives the "Slim Shady" album to four million sold units. In the autumn 1999 the marriage with long-term girlfriend Kim followed. In July his wife Kim Scott Mathers survived an attempted suicide and files for divorce in August. Eminem promises Kim and daughter Hailie Jade Scott financial support and the couple approached itself again.
"The Slim Shady", "Stan" and "The Way I to" becomes a box-office hit and he got a lot of Grammies and MTV Awards. After a successful world tour, which leads him with stage power saw also to Germany, "The Eminem show" stands in the shops in May 2002. In a time, in which most artists must accept losses with the sales figures, everything that touches Eminem, forms the exception of the rule. Even on the cinema canvas the rapper made a very good figure.
Is he America’s nightmare or simply a very good rapper? Probably most judgements over Eminem apply somehow. With videos of fully black humour and instigating death impact texts he consciously shocks from the outset the strict US public. He slips into different roles in order to reflect the false double morals of America. The fun musicians ‘Die Fantastischen Vier’
1988 it makes ‘plop’ and the Terminal Team from Stuttgart goes into action. 1989 the debut performance follows under the name "Die Fantastischen Vier" - thus the first German-speaking Hip Hop act is born and brings a little fresh wind into the otherwise quite boring music landscape. 1991 the boys pull the interest of a Sony A&Rs who invented the boys promptly to Frankfurt into the main office. The single "Hausmeister Thomas D" and the album "Jetzt geht’s Ab" come out which are played both rather for amusing in the radio. The four rightly became correctly famous with their chart breaker "Die da!?!" from the album 1992 "Vier Gewinnt". The hit, one-dimensional like a schoolyard joke, opens the entrance to the mass media. "Die Vierte Dimension" becomes the necessary metamorphosis - away from the BRAVO favourites to the recognized Hip Hop act with thoughtful and sophisticated texts. Fans and critics are rather confused, too surprising and bulkily the new F4-way takes place. S.M.U.D.O., Deejot Hausmarke, Thomas D and And.Ypsilon however cannot be confused by the protest shouting. Until today they draw through their uncompromising style. Beneath all German hip-hops they belong to the few, who have developed their own unmistakable profile. 1997 Thomas D ensures with his album "Solo" for attention, a half year later Hausmarke follows with the debut "Weltweit". But also other projects like the construction of their own studios or the establishment of their label FourMusic keep the four from common work. With FourMusic the Fantas leverage other artists, additionally, for example Gentleman, Max Herre or Clueso. In April 1999 the single "Mfg" and then finally also a new studio album with the title "4: 99" appeared. After a successful tour, their film “Was Geht” came out in 2001. As the first German Hip Hop act the Fantastischen Vier got the honour to record an unplugged session for MTV. The album that went with it reached gold status (over 150.000 sold units). The year 2001 is located again completely in the indication of the solo sport: Thomas D. returns as Reflektor Falke. By the way the album is produced by And.Ypsilon, and Deejot mutates with partner Thomilla to the House project Turntablerocker. 2003 the four decide to get to know each other again by a tour and the new album “Vier” appears 2004.
Interpretation of rap lyrics

Eminem – “Stan” - 2000
Eminem has a reputation for his profound texts and therefore he is very esteemed. Especially with this rap song he had great success. The song is very sad and stirring because of the suicide as theme.
It consists of 4 verses, whereby all four are formulated as letters. The first three letters are for Eminem (Slim) from his fan Stan and the last is the answer from Eminem. After each verse the chorus follows and is sung by Dido.
In the first letter Stan stresses that he is Eminems biggest fan because he collects all things from him and knows every single detail of his life.
In the following letter he focuses on the bad childhood they have in common. Because of their commonalities Stan can identify himself with Eminems lyrics. That’s why he wants to be like Slim and wishes to be together with his idol. However he is not only a fan, he deifies and emulates him. For instance he tattooed Eminem’s name on his chest and in his last letter he says that he loves him. He also talks about the depressions he has and that he cuts himself. It becomes obvious that he needs aid to clean up his act. At the beginning he is sad because Slim didn’t answered him but that increased to disappointment and finally he feels left in the pass.
The last letter from Stan shows his madness and freakiness. He lost the faith in his idol and therefore he wants to commit suicide and kill his pregnant girlfriend, as well. Stan hoped for help by Eminem and makes Slim responsible for his suicide. Before he drives down the bridge with his car he records a cassette for Slim. He hopes that Eminem has a guilty conscience about losing his biggest fan.
Verse four is the answer from Eminem to all letters from Stan. First he apologizes to Stan and says that he is worried about his fan. He applies to his letters and tries to give him advices for a better life, for the reason that he fears for Stan’s life. He did not listen to the cassette but Eminem red about Stan’s story in the newspaper although he did not know that it was Stan. When he saw his name in the newspaper he was shocked but it was too late.
The chorus from Dido intensify Stan’s situation. Eminem was the only ray of hope in his life and his picture gives him strength to live this bad life. With Eminem he looses his shirt, too.
I like this lyric very much because it is a detailed story and seems to be realistic. One can empathize into this situation well. Eminem wrote this song because he gets a lot of post from crazy hardcore-fans moreover it should be a message to his critics, too because “Stan” shows his true colours.
Die Fantastischen Vier – „Sie ist weg“ – 1995
First and foremost the Fantastischen Vier want to play with the German language. However some music critics said that the texts haven’t got content. With their single "Sie ist weg" one could not speak of missing content any longer: here everybody who really felt in love before could feel with the song. The boys sing critical songs, which are meant to make you think, but their texts are not hard and blunt, as usual in the Hip Hop scene.
The lyrics give the impression that there are two friends who conduct a dialogue about love. The story is taken from real life and most of us can put ourselves in their positions. One of them was left by his girlfriend. Now he feels lonely, sad and later on he is angry because he reacted too late. His friend tried to point out his mistakes to change his situation however the eyes of love were blind. It seems to be the love with a capital L because he is devastated and does not knew such bad feelings before. His friend wants to stick him to the facts and to open his eyes nevertheless he is melancholy. He cannot make the best of his new situation as single and that’s why he feels grim every single day.
The everyday theme of the song shows that Love and understanding are seldom found together. To consider the result of this rap song I would say the main point is that life goes on even in a bad situation. In addition I think it is necessary to make mistakes, in love as well, to learn from them.

Hip Hop has turn out to be very popular as never before and not only because of its beats and rhymes. Today Hip Hop has become a cult and continues to make progress by the variety of music. However, Hip Hop is more than just rap music. Hip Hop combines the five elements of rap, Djing, break dance, graffiti and skateboarding under one roof. The aim of all of them is to develop something artistically, to (re-)present themselves and last but not least to realize yourselves. Therefore, Hip Hop reflects a holistic sensation of life.
Nevertheless, there is a whole set of unwritten laws, principles and behaviour standards in the Hip Hop scene (as there are also in many other youth scenes). It is important to be “real” and not to operate Hip Hop from bare attitude. Rap texts have to be comprehensible and consistent in themselves, in order to be accepted by the scene. The most important of all is the activity of a scene member. Passive consumption of offers is not sufficient to be established successfully in the scene.
But Hip Hop can be very different too, as you can see in the lyrics. In the USA Hip Hop culture developed from the ghettos, where the young people lived. They created graffiti, break dancing, rap and Djing as new styles, which responded directly to the conditions in which they lived. In Germany the situation was different. Hip Hop didn’t develop here from a social situation, to which young people react because they could not find a place otherwise in society. Hip Hop came to Germany exactly as it had to other countries of this world: as a finished and developed export item. Hip Hop had already celebrated its tenth birthday, by the time the first young people in Cologne, Berlin or Hamburg had found out anything at all about rap or graffiti. However, Hip Hop has become a cult today.
Appendix Rap lyrics

Eminem – “Stan”
CHORUS: My tea's gone cold, I'm wondering why I got out of bed at all the morning rain clouds up my window and I can't see at all And even if I could it'd all be grey, but your picture on my wall it reminds me that it's not so bad, it's not so bad My tea's gone cold, I'm wondering why I got out of bed at all the morning rain clouds up my window and I can't see at all And even if I could it'd all be grey, but your picture on my wall it reminds me that it's not so bad, it's not so bad VERSE 1: Dear Slim, I wrote you but you still ain't callin' I left my cell, my pager, and my home phone at the bottom I sent two letters back in autumn You must not have got 'em It probably was a problem at the post office or somethin' Sometimes I scribble addresses too sloppy when I jot 'em But anyways, fuck it, what's been up man, how's your daughter? My girlfriend's pregnant too, I'm out to be a father If I have a daughter, guess what I'm-a call her? I'm-a name her Bonnie.

I ain't mad, I just think it's fucked up you don't answer fans. If you didn't want to talk to me outside your concert You didn't have to but you could have signed an autograph for Matthew. That's my little brother, man. He's only 6 years old. We waited in the blistering cold for you for 4 hours and ya just said no. That's pretty shitty man, you're like his fuckin' idol He wants to be just like you man, he likes you more than I do. I ain't that mad, but I just don't like bein' lied to. Remember when we met in Denver, you said if I write you You would write back. See, I'm just like you in a way. I never knew my father neither. He used to always cheat on my mom and beat her. I can relate to what you're sayin' in your songs. So when I have a shitty day, I drift away and put 'em on. Cause I don't really got shit else, so that shit helps when I'm depressed. I even got a tattoo with your name across the chest. Sometimes I even cut myself to see how much it bleeds. It's like adrenaline. The Pain is such a sudden rush for me. See, everything you say is real, and I respect you 'cause you tell it. My girlfriend's jealous 'cause I talk about you 24/7. But she don't know you like I know you, Slim, no one does. She don't know what it was like for people like us growing up. You've gotta call me man. I'll be the biggest fan you'll ever lose. Sincerely yours, Stan. PS: We should be together too. CHORUS VERSE 3: Dear Mr. "I'm too good to call or write my fans" This'll be the last package I ever send your ass. It's been six months and still no word. I don't deserve it? I know you got my last two letters, I wrote the addresses on 'em perfect. So this is my cassette I'm sending you. I hope you hear it. I'm in the car right now. I'm doing 90 on the freeway. Hey Slim, "I drank a fifth of vodka, ya dare me to drive?" You know that song by Phil Collins from "The Air In The Night"? About that guy who could have saved that other guy from drowning? But didn't? Then Phil saw it all then at his show he found him? That's kinda how this is. You could have rescued me from drowning. Now it's too late. I'm on a thousand downers now, I'm drowsy. And all I wanted was a lousy letter or a call. I hope you know I ripped all o' your pictures off the wall. I love you Slim, we could have been together. Think about it. You ruined it now, I hope you can't sleep and you dream about it. And when you dream, I hope you can't sleep and you scream about it. I hope your conscious eats at you and you can't breathe without me. See Slim, shut up bitch, I'm trying to talk Hey Slim, that's my girlfriend screaming in the trunk. But I didn't slit her throat, I just tied her up, see I ain't like you. 'Cause if she suffocates, she'll suffer more, and then she'll die too. Well, gotta go, I'm almost at the bridge now. Oh shit, I forgot, how am I supposed to send this shit out VERSE 4: Dear Stan, I meant to write you sooner, but I've just been busy. You said your girlfriend's pregnant now, how far along is she? Look, I'm really flattered you would call your daughter that. And here's an autograph for your brother: I wrote it on your Starter cap. I'm sorry I didn't see you at the show, I must have missed you. Don't think I did that shit intentionally, just to diss you. And what's this shit you said about you like to cut your wrists too? I say that shit just clownin' dawg, c'mon, how fucked up is you? You got some issues, Stan, I think you need some counselin' To help your ass from bouncin' off the walls when you get down some. And what's this shit about us meant to be together? That type of shit'll make me not want us to meet each other. I really think you and your girlfriend need each other. Or maybe you just need to treat her better. I hope you get to read this letter. I just hope it reaches you in time. Before you hurt yourself, I think that you'd be doin' just fine If you'd relax a little. I'm glad that I inspire you, but Stan Why are you so mad? Try to understand that I do want you as a fan. I just don't want you to do some crazy shit. I seen this one shit on the news a couple weeks ago that made me sick. Some dude was drunk and drove his car over a bridge And had his girlfriend in the trunk and she was pregnant with his kid And in the car they found a tape but it didn't say who it was to Come to think about it...his name was you. DAMN!

Hip Hop ist nicht nur die reine Kunst des Sprechgesangs, sondern auch ein kultureller Komplex, der Aussenstehende immer wieder sprachlos macht. [...]
Hip Hop hat die Art und Weise, wie Musik gemacht wird, völlig verändert und den Lebensstil einer ganzen Generation von Jugendlichen –

beinahe weltweit - geprägt.
Hip Hop hat nicht nur Wesentliches zum Boom des Musikgeschäfts beigetragen, sondern auch eine ganze Modeindustrie hervorgebracht.
Mit Hip Hop haben die Afroamerikaner zum erstenmal einen eigenständigen kulturellen Ausdruck gefunden und diesen
auch noch selber vermarktet.1
