Exploring the History of Hip Hop

I built TheHistoryofHipHop.net in order to allow hip hop fans to explore the fascinating evolution of the culture, sounds, and personalities of hip hop from its birth in the 1970s all the way to present day 2016. I wanted to build a central hub for people to be able to go to whenever they wanted to learn about specefic years in hip hop, or specific albums and artists of those years. As of October 7th, thehistoryofhiphop.net has been visited by over 4.5 thousand different users with a total of 18 thousand page views.

The Hub For Each Decade

At the center of the History of Hip Hop is the Decade Page. The Decade Page is the hub for each decade, from the 1970s to the 2010s. The goal of the Decade Page is to display the 16 most influencial and defining albums of that decade, along with the 6 most influencial and impactful artists. The artists are chosen very carefully and are meant to represent their decade as one of its "Influencers".
