But the biggest breakthrough hip-hop was, of course, the emergence of rap music. It all began in 1975, when all the same Cool Herk at a party in the club "Hevalo" plugged-in microphone and began during a break to talk with the dancing crowd. This was quite in keeping with the tradition of spoken Jamaican reggae (which, incidentally, that by that time have become really well known in America). The crowd liked it - DJs took to the practice of arms. Initially, the case went no further than monosyllabic or shouting chants some cheer it. Later in the monologue were included stubby limiriki - and finally cleared The simple poetic improvisation - often in explanation of the song, which is rotated on turntable. Typically MC initially recited publicly any quatrain, and then to collect my thoughts, chanted something like:
Yes Yes Y'all, Yes Yes Y'all,
One Two Y'all
To The Beat Y'all!
Rap it was not yet called, and called the word "emceeing". Although the word "rap" and described them squabble ritual existed in black folklore long. Scraps of information about these rap competitions among African-Americans found a long time, but science rap and its form ( "dozens" and "signifying", also known as "talking shits") were first described in the 30 years in Harlem and South Bronx. Teens compete in that as clearly as possible and rhythmic simprovizirovat on certain strict canonical rules poetic text, consisting of alternating slip three quatrains (hence the "dozens" - "a dozen"). Two rival turns all blower rhythm exchanged dozens, while some one is not slipping or rhetorical advantage of someone does not become apparent. The purpose of rap has been as much as possible to offend the enemy, and even better - his mother or sister. Intonation (first quatrain) was devoted to bragging: Glorified the dignity of an improviser with a greatly exaggerated. This was followed by an equally exaggerated contemptuous opinion of the opponent and wondered how he dared to compete with the best in the world of rap master, a powerful virtuoso. Further quatrains - and there could be any number - were constructed as follows: Two lines described as a poet mother allegedly had an opponent, with a disgusted, details of its physiology, etc., and two others - the events of life quarter, life observations, the idea of "Black Power" and everything that could come head. Rhymed second and fourth line. It could last for hours, and if no winner is identified, then the case was solved by a fight with the fans.
Signifying different from dozens more freedom of improvisation: Apply syncopation and the intentional distortion of rhythm, in which an improviser overcame the dizzying complexity of the passages to get out of them and return to the original rhythm. Signifying close to the Russian patter, but with a very complicated versification and brought to the perfection of alliteration. This patter has dozens of lines, with the peak of perfection is to use only one rhyme and alliteration throughout the text. These genres, and gradually began to flourish in New York discos. Traditions funk concerts, at which the audience sings as much as the musicians on stage, committed the b-boys shouted with DJs. This made all to remember the dozens. Gradually rappers have vylazit to DJ microphone and turns recite their verse. All this, of course, done improvisation - read a piece of paper would be a mortal sin. Of course, every rapper on the sly prepared and inventing rhymes and topics for the next party; Mele Mel, one of the first readers, admitted that he sat doing this for half a day. But the return was fantastic and: Early rappers performed at the microphone is not an hour or two, but all night - nonstop ... And the night had to be read so as to keep the audience in suspense, and "shaking" dance floor. "We born to rock the world!" - Singing then this is the Mele Mel, and in general not flooded.
In 1976, Africa Bambaataa begins to make long mixes, and soon brings its most famous sandwich - imposes a broken beat funk to play "Trans-Europe Express" group Kraftwerk, the leaders of the German electronic avant-garde. As a result, the light appears a new musical style - "electro-funk" or simply "electric" - the sacred music breakers. In the same year, the DJs like Grandmaster Flash and Grand Wizard Theodore invented simultaneously scratch. In addition, Grendmaster Flash invents a way to automatically get hung breaks - that creates unprecedented opportunities for b-boys and rappers. That summer Grendmaster Flash and Cool Herk render vane in the park and open practice of "open-airs" - party outdoors. Flash and his buddy Cowboy agree with Mele Mel, and three other dudes and using a drum machine, mixer and turntables to create the first light of the rap group "Grand Master Flash The Furious 5".
Meanwhile, hip-hop has changed. In 1974, DJ Africa Bambaataa, a former street gang chieftain "Black Spades" creates polureligioznuyu organization "Zulu Nation" (or rather, radically reform the grouping of the same name soccer fans) - and so is the beginning of indoctrination of hip-hop. Actually, if you are getting the very concept of "hip-hop", combining music, dance, lifestyle and ideology. The task of "Zulu Nation" was the cultivation of breaks, rap, graffiti and other arts - with the aim of educating black boys in the national pride and diverting them from the senseless aggression, crime, and cocaine. Based on personal experience, Bambaataa encouraged the singers to sublimate aggression in rap music - because it leads to authentic African spirituality.

Just as Jamaican Rude Boys, following calls by Bob Marley, thousands dredy and grew their beards, get up in linen shirt and began to read the Bible - and their colleagues began to Harlem vent their bubbling energy furious scratch. By the end of the 70's growing popularity growing influence on fashion and in New York. Afrika Bambaataa, "Furious Five", and other DJs also lowered dredy and began to dress like funk went to the Zulu warriors. (As you know, a nickname Bambaataa became a Zulu chief, who had raised at the beginning of the century uprising against the whites.)
Gold chain on a bi-boyskih vyyah changed to "African" Medal of traffic lights-Rastafarian colors. However, Rasta as a religion of rappers are not attracted. "Zulu Nation" is not kept unique religious orientation. It was a youth syncretic cult, woven from other syncretic religions - Islam, black, Rastafarians, voodoo and even God knows what. "Zulu" is not relished grim pathos - such as slavery, exodus, mission black man, all the evils of white, etc. Bambaataa just called to devote ourselves entirely new rituals - break, rap, graffiti - and, in this sense was closer to traditional African religion. BBC boyskie team, despite the rivalry, the shaft was thrown into a new movement and seems to have signed all of them. Gradually, year after year, "Zulu Nation" was transformed into an international organization breakers.
