There are several different types of hip-hop genres. The first kind was known as alternative hip hop and was introduced in the 1980s. The genre declined during the early 2000s but gained popularity again with the resurgence of indie music. The rise of this genre was partially attributed to its artists, which made it mainstream. Hip-hop groups such as Souls of Mischief and OutKast were major crossover success stories. Their music crossed genres and influenced other genres.
Some of the best examples of independent hip-hop are featured in Okayplayer’s Going Left column. In the July issue, rapper The OG Ninja released a collaborative album with producer Misterdillinger. Another rising Delaware artist, Chef Sean, released his solo album My Life and features rising Delaware rapper Ake. Finally, Mississippi-based indie hip-hop artist Slim Baby has teamed up with Boosie Badazz for a new track titled “Money Calling.”
Hip hop culture traces its roots in African-American music and the sounds of griots are similar to rapping. These songs are often influenced by African-American traditions and religious ceremonies. In the 1970s, hip hop was mostly centered in the South Bronx, where a large Puerto Rican and Latino population lived. Famous rap artists from this region include Big Pun, Fat Joe, Angie Martinez, and MC/producer DJ Nat D.
When you’re feeling lonely, one of the best artists to listen to is Cage the Elephant. These guys have the most number one Alternative songs in the past decade, and their songs always have a catchy hook.

They’re definitely worth listening to, but don’t make the mistake of thinking that their music is for kids.
The term “alternative” has become a household word when describing alternative rock music. This style of music reflects the DIY energy of the punk rock scene of the 1980s, but with a pop sensibility. Alternative rock bands generally compose songs with diatonic melodies that sound like pop music. These bands have a lot of influence from their influences. And they’re not limited to the underground scene.
Nirvana and Green Day are two of the most well-known and overrated alternative rock bands. Their albums were overrated because of the cliches they created, and their songs are generally utter crap. Instead, try Linkin Park or Coldplay. If you’re in the mood for an alternative rock experience, these bands can be a great place to start. They’re surprisingly accessible, and if you’re new to the genre, you might be surprised to find that the genre is much bigger than you think.

In their memoir “Mo’ Meta Blues”, Questlove describes the early 90s breakup that left the group in de facto exile in Europe without a record deal. They met and hung out with London creatives such as Giles Peterson, absorbing new influences. But the band’s fate was still in their hands: They signed to Geffen Records in the early 2000s, became a touring powerhouse, and began working on their seventh studio album, Things Fall Apart.
The Roots’ musical influences vary, but the group’s early work has been influenced by jazz, indie rap, hip hop, and hip-hop. In 2004, The Roots released “The Tipping Point,” a mixtape based on previously recorded jam sessions that combined influences from hip-hop, jazz, and classical music. Their album peaked at number four on the Billboard charts. The Roots’ first album on Def Jam was Game Theory, which was darker and spoke of socio-political themes. Rising Down continued the grim theme, but included electronic influences.
“What They Do” is an intelligent critique of rap video cliches, and a powerful anti-gangsta manifesto. This track was released following “llladelph Halflife” (named after a Chinua Achebe novel), which was released around the same time as Soulquarians’ projects. Despite its lackluster sales, Things Fall Apart is an important album for indie rap fans.
