Hardcore hip hop

Back | Home | Up | Next


Hardcore hip hop (sometimes referred to as Reality Rap) is a form of hip hop music that has confrontational, often violent lyrics, and generally sparse, gritty urban beats. The genre began in 1986 by Schoolly D. Soon after, hardcore hip hop evolved into gangsta rap with the emergence of Ice T and N.W.A and the original Hardcore Rap began to weaken. Groups such as O N Y X, with their debut album Bacdafucup and The Wu-Tang Clan's debut Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) (see 1993 in music), re-energized East Coast hardcore, and the style soon dominated music charts with stars like DMX, Big Pun, Jadakiss and the Wu-Tang Members in their solo careers while the Gangsta Rap totally disappeared.

"Hardcore Hip Hop" is also the title of a single by DJ Shadow.
