dc.description.abstractOver the last three decades, the cultural movement known as hip hop has propelled itself from the margins of mainstream American culture to a staple and often trendsetting force at the forefront of popular culture. From its roots in the South Bronx borough of New York City, hip hop –what was once considered to be a passing fad of inner-city youth –has spread to the four corners of the world surpassing its now archaic expiration date and inducing vibrant cultural hybrids in countries such as Japan, France, and Brazil.en_US
