Rap Music is truely an American minority creation of subcultural roots. This musical artform has been around for over 30 years in the United States.
In fact, one can trace the history of rap back to West African professional singers/storytellers known as Griots.
Unfortunately, rap music is not percieved by many Americans as an art form, but as a fad which they thought would soon fade away...
One cannot study American Rap Music without what is known as the "Hip-Hop" culture.
Hip-Hop culture was also comprised of DJ'ing, Breakdancing, Graffiti, MC'ing, Beatboxing, Street Fashion, Street Language, Street Knowledge & Street Entrepreneurialism!!!
Research seems to point back to the Bronx in New York City as the origin for the hip-hop culture.
Hip-Hop is the expression of creative intelligence.
It is also the transformation of subjects and objects to describe your consciousness!!

Rap Report Card Radio Show - #10 (The Winning Formula) by KBIZ Complex
Gospel Rapper B_Wise from the streets to turning his life around. God can and will change anybody if you let him.
As his teenage years went on, B-Wise began selling drugs and listening to gangster hip hop music, which glamorized an illegal lifestyle. He was intrigued by the fast money, but was never really satisfied inside. Then a miracle occurred and the LORD came into his life. He experienced a deep spiritual change and no longer wanted to create music about gang-banging, materialism, and explicit subjects. His desire was to change the world in a positive way and be a "Martin Luther King" in the music industry. In September of 2001, at the age of 17, Brandon "B-Wise" Wise decided to accept Christ into his heart and underwent a major mental and spiritual transformation.
B-Wise says: “One night, I was at a youth service at my church in Asheville, sitting in the back row free-styling with some friends. I could not free-style very well at the time, so I decided to write a verse. I read it aloud to the youth group and everyone was amazed at what I had written.
