History Of Hip Hop
Hip hop as music and culture formed during the 1970s when block parties became increasingly popular in New York City, particularly among African American youth residing in the Bronx. Block parties incorporated DJs, who played popular genresof music, especially funk and soul music. Due to the positive reception, DJs began isolating the percussive breaks of popular songs. This technique was then common in Jamaican dub music, and was largely introduced into New York by immigrants from Jamaica and elsewhere in the Caribbean, including DJ Kool Herc, who is generally considered the father of hip hop.[by whom?] Because the percussive breaks in funk, soul and discorecords were generally short, Herc and other DJs began using two turntables to extend the breaks.
Energy drinks are unhealthy and even dangerous for teenagers. Normal serving size is about 8 ounces but any more than that can cause serious health issues. A few types of energy drinks would include, Monster, Amp, Redbull, and Rockstar. The excessive caffeine in energy drinks is what makes it so unhealthy.
