How and why did Hip/Hop overtake rock music ?
- Anonymous7 months ago
Because rock music just isnt innovating anymore.
I mean, they are innovating, the new talent is. But it seems as though the only people who it seems to be attracting are emo kids.Source(s): 79

Kids always want whatever is different from their older generation parents. Rap filled that void nicely.

Hip hop started out based off of ska, rock n roll, and disco fusion. It was played in between breaks of songs as transitions and kept the crowds dancing. Like most forms of music it started in a small sector and then as more radio stations played it more people jumped on. Keep in mind that the core audience expanded as well and that most rock n roll fans also become hip hop fans. It’s like adding sugar to cookie mix. There’s always the flour but that flour has sugar in it and there’s more just sugar in the equation.

It hasn't and never will. It's not even music. It's just talking in contrived rhymes while making silly pointing gestures.
