Hip-hop also know as rap has become increasingly popular especially this year since there has been many rising new rappers. Rappers use rhythm, lyrics, and vocal tone to express themselves and the rappers that are considered the best are distinguished by their flow or the way words run together without getting tongue tied. Hip-hop originated in The Bronx, New York in the 1970s.
