East coast hip hop or East coast rap is a current within hip-hop that developed in the 1980s on the East Coast of the United States. Its beginnings correspond to those of hip-hop as a whole, which developed on the East Coast of the United States, especially in New York City, through musicians such as Grandmaster Flash and established itself through Kurtis Blow, LL Cool J, Slick Rick and other artists. It wasn’t until the later 1980s, when West Coast hip-hop emerged as a countercurrent in Los Angeles, that the term East Coast hip-hop was used to distinguish one coast from the other.
In the late 1980s, Public Enemy became the most famous act in American hip-hop. They stood out for their very critical lyrics and aggressive style, which influenced other bands, especially the artists who formed the Native Tongues Posse, including De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest and Queen Latifah. But the metal band Anthrax was also influenced by Public Enemy, recording the track I’m the man in 1987. Thus, the music genre of crossover was born. Also, this led to a joint tour in 1991 and the joint recording of the Public Enemy title Bring the Noise in crossover style.
