It’s Like That: The Makings of a Hip-Hop Writer

Hip-hop was a different kind of music that needed a different kind of writer to cover it. This is how Michael A. Gonzales came of age in the 1980s when he began his career as a music journalist.

A good place to hear about early hip hop is the Youtube channel The Foundation

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras
