i hear this hip hop arguement all the time. and dont really care if it is or isnt. while their are really important people in graffiti who werent into hip hop (like seen); graffiti is a form of self expression that has a lot in common with other self expressions in hip hop culture. it has more in common with hip hop then with other subcultures. people who rap express themselves by arranging words in a stylistic manner. our favorite artists stand out because we like their style. we do the exact same thing just with letters. being that graffiti is all about style and so is hip hop, even the things that make good breakers stand out is sort of the same things that make good graffiti stand out. style, creativity, movement, clean angles, etc. in this sense, it has a lot in common with hip hop.

Graffiti has been around way before hip hop has and there are thousands thousands of people around the world who do graffiti and don't even listen to hip hop. Hip hop embraced it but didn't event it...

 

no body's saying dat at all, it most def was not invented by hip hop, but it spread all around the world cause of it, i mean, that deal rime and those other dudes got of adidas was of the strength of hip hop,

graff is one of the 4 elements of hip hop...along with b-boying, DJing and MCing

 

thanks for the history lesson, meng.

 

graff is related to hip-hop because around the time that hip-hop started to spread its popularity alot of kids that happened to write, were digging it.

 

graff was around before hip-hop, and will likely be around after hip-hop aint cool anymore.

 

or atleast, i hope so.

Graffiti is not Hip-Hop. It is Egocentric, Selfish, Self-Destructive, Somtimes pointless, Dirty, Grimey, Fun, Thrilling, and a whole lot of other shit, but not Hip-Hop. I read somewhere that the Egyptians hated Hip-Hop and Native Americans defnitely didn't beat box or scratch. Fairy tale Hip-Hop culture is stupid. Just do your own thing and shut the fuck up. Word god son.

IT IS BECAUSE OF HIP-HOP THAT I FIRST DISCOVERED GRAFFITI (ICE-T 12' RHYME PAYS WHERE SLICK AND RISK PAINTED THE BIG ICE-T WITH THE UZI AROUND 86') -AND I LOVE HIP-HOP...ALONG WITH EVERY OTHER TYPE OF MUSIC THAT IS GOOD. I BELIEVE HIP-HOP HAS HAD A HUGE INFLUENCE ON GRAFFITI...UNDENIABLY. AND THEY BOTH DO SHARE A LOT OF THE SAME PHILOSOPHY'S. BUT PERSONALLY I FEEL GRAFFITI IS MUCH MORE EXPANSIVE THAN HIP-HOP...AND IS ITS OWN CULTURE AND MOVEMENT ALTOGETHER, NOT A PART OF ONE.

 

-NO HOMO.
