Hip Hop History

Hip Hop is a culture that began in the late 70’s in the Bronx, New York City. During that time period, the Bronx was suffering from extreme violence, poverty and drug addiction. In response to these issues a gang called the Ghetto Brothers organized truce between all the gangs in the Bronx. This movement to promote peace coincided with the birth of Hip Hop. Young people began expressing themselves through breakdance, rap, graffiti and music. Block parties brought entire neighborhoods together and a radical change was achieved. Hip Hop represents peace, unity and respect, and these are the values that RancheroPandillero represents.
