Hip Hop & City Planning

Hip Hop and City Planning are intertwined with one antoher. Cities are plans and developments that are built on the plans of previous generations that are upgraded, modified and changed over time. However they use the past to build a new creation. Today we rehabilitate past structures to make a new construction and adapt it so current conditions.

Well to me that's what HIp Hop is, a music built on the backs of past music stemming from blues, rock, soul and jazz. Hip Hop uses the foundations of past music samples is and makes a new creation. Hip Hop "rehabilitates" past songs and uses their elements to adapt to a current form.
