Ice T – Party People “Go Off”

There are many elements of Hip Hop. There have even been video games made with that market in mind (and using elements of the culture). These games were not representative of the actual process through which Hip Hop, as an artform, was created as a msucial form. Hip Hop was independent musicians in New York City, that began using what was available to them to create a totally different “sound” and message from outside the studio system.

This project is a true example of Hip Hop as a method, not just a style within the medium. The song below impacted me a lot when I heard it in 1984 (years before “Walk This Way” featuring Run DMC and Aerosmith). The meshing of genres styles, sounds, messages, and idea in art.
