(Video) Bronx to Billions: The Forbes Guide To Hip-Hop History
Forbes (@) is right, there is no possible way the various creators of Hip-Hop music and culture could have foreseen the global growth of the genre and lifestyle. There are arguable moments in the history of the culture as to who created what and which borough began what but one thing the world agrees on is the Hip-Hop began in the Bronx. Forbes took the time to pull together what I consider one of the best educational pieces on the subject, in quite some time. It’s as legitimate as they come in the treatment of the culture and benefits heavily from the wisdom of REAL Hip-Hop legends as well as modern-day superstars. No I’m not going to name drop…watch the video!
The world’s 20 highest-paid hip-hop acts have earned about $4.5 billion over the past decade—not bad for a genre spawned from the ashes of the South Bronx. With the help of hip-hop’s founding fathers as well as modern-day Cash Kings, we explain how. ~ Forbes
