Los Angeles Hip-Hop Concerts: A Fade Not Gone Away

See also

There was a time Hip-Hop was considered a fade that would go away, similar to disco music when people got tired of it, or at least became too embarrassed to embrace what they liked in public. However, one thing the executive minded critics did not considered is that the rappers, the DJs, and the writers, were not making music just to fulfill their spare time; but they were making a movement. Rappers used the medium of music to discuss, entertain, inform, and report on their world that is often overlooked by mainstream media.

Overtime, rap expanded from New York, and came to Los Angeles, were rappers had to prove their style and culture deserved to be listened and respected as well. Although it is often criticized for its misogynist tones and reported as dead, Hip-Hop did not die, nor did it stay stagnate. Instead it spawned into various sub-genres, including conscious, political, spiritual, gangsta, rock, and crunk.

Check out the list of upcoming Hip-Hop concerts that may fit your musical taste.
