Rap History: Black History Month Celebration
Love & Hip Hop
As a hip hop inspired and black owned brand, what better way to celebrate Black History Month than with a tribute to Hip Hop pioneers!
For Black History Month Bellargo will be highlighting groundbreaking moments in Hip Hop from some of your favorite artist of color. Hip-hop is one of the most commercially successful genres in the modern music world. The genre’s influence on not only our culture - but culture at large is unrivaled, as evidenced by the power it has over other industries. It has revolutionized society, transcending trends and reshaping language, entertainment, politics, fashion and the list goes on.
With its huge global reach, hip-hop has continued to move the needle. As the genre turns 50 this year, celebrating five decades worth of history, relevance and influence, there’s something to be said about how this movement has continued to evolve for more than a quarter century. From the defining moments that have reshaped culture at large, to critical milestones that have chronicled rappers' journeys to success in the multibillion-dollar juggernaut, hip-hop is a hotbed for innovation.
