Over the years I notice that people that listen to hip hop music is usually stereotyped; from the way they dress, talk, and even carry themselves. after noticing this, I came with the conclusion hip hop is a subculture. In my house hold me and my family predominantly listen to hip hop, and watch television stations such as BET and MTV that mostly broadcast hip hop videos, TV series and advertisments. After finding the meaning of subculture and paying close attention to hip hop videos, advertisements and even friends and family that listen to hip hop music over the past few weeks, I notice that people that listen to hip hop, and people that are hip hop artist are different from others. People that listen and develop hip hop music usually dress more urban also they tend use more slang then others. People that listen to hip hop and develop hip hop music also are predominantly African American. Hip Hop is more then music, its a way of life.
