Electro hop is a form of dance music mixed with hip hop which arose in Southern California in the early 1980s. While hardcore hip hop dominated the East Coast, electro hop was the dominant form of West Coast hip hop during the early part of the decade. Purists, including most East Coast critics, hated electro hop and viewed it as watered-down. Electro hop largely died out with the rise of Ice-T, N.W.A. and other early West Coast gangsta rappers.
