The Society: Subcultures: (Hip-Hop Subcultures )

Hip-Hop is about self-expression and self-appreciation. It speaks to those who have an open ear; it displays itself to those who have an open eye. Today Hip-Hop is a multi-cultural fusion of many different contributions made by several ethnic groups, which is why it is considered to be a universal art and culture. The elements of deejaying, emceeing, breakdancing and grafitti, all conclude to form an art that is "colorless" and enjoyed all across the world. Description from Hip-Hop Subcultures Society.

Hip hop is a subcultural movement that was formed during the early 1970s by African-American and Puerto Rican youths residing in the South Bronx in New York City. (wikipedia)
