This $80 Million dollar development will begin to enshrine a culture that has become the most influential and disruptive culture around the world. The 5 elements of HIP HOP has gone world wide and continues to grow not only commercially through Rap but the knowledge, graffiti, break dance, and DJ-ing elements has all created it's own lanes and has built them up to almost become it's own entity outside of HIP HOP that has created various subsets within them.
Rap - has gone from simple & plain, to melodic rap. Knowledge - has gone from being passed down from person to person within the local community, to now Lectures are being created in Universities. DJ-ing - has gone from local block parties to now Dj's having residency in Vegas or various locations around the world. Graffiti - has gone from being considered vandalism to now being accepted as an actual Art. A art that is practiced around the world and being used from Gangs, to artist making political statements. Break dance (B-boy & B-girl) - has gone from hobbyist dancing for the love and creating crews, to compete against each other in the street. To now being on the world stage and hosting its own sponsored competitions. Various B-boy single and crews compete to see who is the worlds best, sponsored by Red Bull. Amazing! how far this black culture, created out of necessity, has become accepted by all walks of life and has Unified & blurred the color lines amongst people that live the culture. Why? because it isn't about black or white or color. It's about love for those 5 elements and how it brings people together. Which is how it all started.
I just purchased my first official rap album, that I wasn't allowed to have. Red Man - "Whut? the Album". Plus purchased other classic albums that displayed lyrical prowess that year like Dr. Dre "The Chronic", Pete Rock & CL Smooth - "Mecca & Da Soul Brother", Gangstarr -Daily Operation and we saw the birth of a new iggedy style called Sewage (That everyone copied after ), created by the two man group Das EFX.
In 1993. You had Tribe Called Quest - "Midnight Marauders", Snoop Dogg - "Doggy Style", Black Moon - "Enter Da Stage", LL Cool J - "14 Shots to the Dome", Guru - "Jazzmataz", Ice Cube - Lethal Injection, ONYX - Bacdafucup. Then came something you had never seen or heard before conceptually or creatively in HIP HOP as of yet. The concept of the Wu - Tang Clan.
