    No, not all Rappers, or Hip Hop singers are from Jamaica, the roots of Hip Hop did first meet in Jamaica though, since it was a gathering point for all the trade towards the Americas.

    Where African melodies(because people often forget that African rhythms are orignally 5 counts, and 7 counts, like Irish-traditional music, rather than the European 3 count, or 4 count, so African rhythms, are technically African melodies, because they're almost all 4 counts, with a repetitive(samples, and loops) melody, to tie it together) met with European rhythms of Folk, and March-music.
