The roots of the Hip Hop culture are found in African music. Like Rap, R&B, Jazz, & the Blues, Hip Hop "rose from the cracks of a concrete jungle". Tenement buildings blocked the morning sunlight. There were no roosters or alarm clocks, & without the sun’s rise & shine, youngsters missed the school bus, hence their lack of an adequate education. The sun wasn’t shining on the streets of the ghetto. So when gentrification left poor black people out in the cold, Hip Hop brought the heat. It remained in the battery-run, shoulder holstered boom box and on the modern papyrus of a black & white composition book. It was black, white, & red all over; the newspaper of the children of the ghetto.
