ANO BA TALAGA ANG HIP-HOP?

Intro: Ibabahagi ko po sa inyo ang kasalukuyang mga impormasyon na aking nakalap patungkol sa kulturang ito na matagal ng umiipluwensya sa ating bansa ngunit hangang ngayon tila parang mangilan-ngilan parin ang nakakaunawa rito…

Matagal na nating naririnig yung salitang “HIP-HOP” pero ako man ay namangha ng malaman ko ang tunay na kahulugan at kung ano ba ang totoong layunin nito kung bakit itinatag.

Una sa lahat na nais kung linawin ay ang maling pag-aakala ng marami (tulad ko noon) na ang RAP at HIP-HOP ay iisa, mali po ito, ang RAP ay isang parte lamang ng HIP-HOP na pumapailalim sa pagitan ng EMCEEing at DJ-ing.

Pangalawa ang HIP-HOP ay hindi isang “fashion style” or trend lamang, bagaman marami ang naiimpluwensyahan ng “Street Fashion” na kung saan itoy kabilang rin sa mga elemento ng Hip-Hop tulad ng RAP.

 

So Ano nga ba talaga ang HIP-HOP?

Hip-Hop is a study of self transformation to attain empowering positive behaviour

Hip-Hop is a pursuit of self-expression

Ang Hip-Hop ay isang pag-aaral upang paunlarin ang sarili sa positibong pamamaraan…

Ang Hip-Hop nagsusulong upang ipahayag ang sarili

Hip-Hop begins to awareness that help the individual

to change and transform subjects and objects

Ang Hip-Hop ay nagmumula sa kamulatan na kung saan ito ay tumutulong sa indibiduwal para baguhin ang isang paksa o bagay.

Hip-Hop is a culture

Hip-Hop is a art

Hip-Hop is a Movement that pursue PEACE, HAVING FUN, UNITY and LOVE

Ang Hip-Hop ay isang kultura

Ang Hip-Hop ay isang Sining

Ang Hip-Hop ay isang kilusan para sa kapayapaan, pagkakaisa, pag-aaliw at pag-ibig.

Tulad nga ng nasabi ko nung una ang RAP ay isa lamang bahagi ng Hip-Hop pati narin ang “Street Fashion”, kung magkagayon anu-ano pa ba ang ibat-ibang elemento ng HIP-HOP?

As per KRS-One a.k.a the Teacha! The element of Hip-Hop are the following…

 

  1. EMCEE-ing – study of the divine speech
  2. DJ-ing- study or the pursuit of technology
  3. Breaking or B-Boying a.k.a Breakdancing- pursuit or study of martial arts
  4. Beat boxing -study of mind body and health, seeing your body as an instrument
  5. Graffiti- study of colours and dimension
  6. Street fashion
  7. Street language
  8. Street knowledge- study of universal law actuality
  9. Street entrepreneurial

So if you will think about it, Hip-Hop is way too far on being a GANGSTER or GANGSTAH, Hip-hopers are people who pursue peace and not really patronizing violent act(s). Another misconception belief that we fellow Filipino patronize it.

In Philippines we have lots of issue regarding “vandalism” this people are writing the names of their groups or tribes and that is a unethical act and not HIP-HOP. Maling akala natin na yung GRAFFITI Art ay basta lamang pagsusulat sa dingding kahit na nakakaperwisyo tayo ng kapwa, na kung saan ang ganitong gawain ay taliwas sa isinusulong na layunin ng Hip-Hop.

As of now if you will ask me, being a Hip-hop is simply being a better person who you can become. As a matter of fact there are lots of people who can be consider as a Hip-Hop not because they rap or breakdance ( which is the big misconception about Hip-hop) but because they simply do, live or/and pursue the principles of Hip-Hop which is Peace, Unity, Having Fun and Love.
