Is hip hop a culture?

Is it a set genre of music, or is it more like a collection of styles? Do you see hip hop as becoming a new genre, or simply as another musical genre?

Hip hop is a style of music, and as a cultural group, it really isn’t a question of “if” or “where.” There is a huge amount of overlap between all rap music, but we haven’t been able to truly understand that overlap because of the way the genre is currently defined. The music created and performed by hip hop artists will always be seen through one eye: the eye of the producer or engineer. That’s true of any type music, but what makes hip hop a unique genre is the fact that its artists play multiple roles, whether it be as musicians/rappers, producers, singers, rappers… the list goes on and on.

Is New York City a part of the hip hop culture? I think it is, and there is an amazing amount of diversity among New York.

Is there culture in the South?

Not as much as the East Coast, and not as much as the West Coast.

Are there other regional and ethnic groups of artists?

Hip hop is most definitely one of many genres. But it’s just as much a part of a larger cultural area — the music is unique and diverse.
