Rap is a music genre with roots in African-American funk and soul music. The rap, which originated from the Jamaican tradition of toasting, sampling and scratching are further characteristics of this music originating from the African-American ghettos of the USA. The term Rap goes back (depending on the source) to either Lovebug Starski or DJ Hollywood, both pioneers of the form.
In general, rap emerged in the 1970s. In 1973, Kool DJ Herc was the first DJ to start repeating only the beat of a funk, soul or disco track, instead of playing the whole track and assembling two different beats (the so-called beatjuggling).At his block parties, the first B-boys also appeared to the new breakdance. Afrika Bambaataa was among the first DJs to be inspired by Kool DJ Herc. In 1976, he hosted his first party, naming his accompanying “crew” of “breakers” Zulu-Kings and Zulu-Queens, which later became Zulu Nation. Starting in 1976, Grandmaster Flash developed other new DJ techniques such as cutting (playing songs in parallel to the beat), backspinning (where the record is spun rapidly backwards to repeat a particular section), and phasing (where a phasing effect is created by slightly reducing the speed of one of the two turntables). The Grand Wizard Theodore, discovered by Grandmaster Flash, closes the period of inventions of elementary DJ techniques shortly after with the invention of the most famous technique, scratching.
Meanwhile there are now many producers around the world who offer free rap beats for non-profit use. These free beats are a good option for beginners. On the other hand it is common for serious artists to buy rap beats online for-profit use. With the purchase of leasing rights or exclusive rights, it is possible to acquire commercial rights for rap beats in order to use them commercially.
To put it differently, with the purchase of a license you can sell your songs online and offline. Furthermore, you can distribute your songs on all online portals such as Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, iTunes, Pandora, Deezer etc.
