Hip hop is a subcultural movement that was formed during the early 1970s by African-American youths residing in the South Bronx in New York City. Art historian Robert Farris Thompson describes the demographics of the youth that characterize the South Bronx in the early 1970s as "English-speaking blacks from Barbados" like Grandmaster Flash, "black Jamaicans" like Kool DJ Herc, "thousands of blacks from Cuba," that introduced the dance rhythms from the mambo and danzón as well as Afro conga and bonga drums, and "thousands and thousands more of boricuas [sic]" who emulated the sounds of Tito Puente and Willie Colòn with existing styles of musical styles from jazz to funk associated with African Americans prior to the 1970s.  Hip-hop music became popular outside of the African-American community in the late 1980s.

Hip hop is simultaneously a new and old phenomenon; the importance of sampling to the art form means that much of the culture has revolved around the idea of updating classic recordings, attitudes, and experiences for modern audiences—called "flipping" within the culture. It follows in the footsteps of earlier American musical genres such as blues, salsa, jazz, rag-time, and rock and roll in having become one of the most practiced genres of music in existence worldwide, and also takes additional inspiration regularly from soul music, funk, and rhythm and blues.

Clothing has always been a big part of hip hop's social and cultural impact and as the genre's popularity increased, so did the effect of its fashion. While there were early items synonymous with hip hop that crossed over into the mainstream culture, like Run-DMC's affinity for Adidas or the Wu-Tang Clan's championing of Clarks’ Wallabees, it wasn’t until its commercial peak that hip-hop fashion became influential. Starting in the mid- to late 1990s, hip-hop culture embraced some major designers and established a new connection with classic fashion. Brands such as Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger all tapped into hip-hop culture and gave very little in return. Moving into the new millennium, hip-hop fashion consisted of baggy shirts, jeans, and jerseys. As names like Pharrell and Jay-Z started their own clothing lines and still others like Kanye West linked up with designers like Louis Vuitton, the clothes got tighter, more classically fashionable, and expensive.

Artists now use brands as a means of supplemental income to their music or are creating and expanding their own brands that become their primary source of income.

Hip hop is created and enjoyed by all cultures.
