There's so much dope music out there combining elements of hip hop with different Jamaican styles and it's not really surprising as these are two musical genres that are intrinsically linked, sharing rhythmical roots in Africa and both heavily influenced by American Blues, Jazz and Soul. Kool Herc took the Jamaican sound system concept to New York in the late 70s and helped create hip hop, often from funk records with lyrics that echoed the revolutionary message of rasta. The creative recycling process of dub music can be closely compared with the tradition of sampling, and emceeing and rapping aren't really so different from a dancehall dj toasting. Significantly,both styles reflect a culture that is all about rising above oppression and sufferation.
