East Coast Rap/Hip-Hop Music

East Coast Rap & Hip-hop has more of an Old-School flavor than West Coast. Public Enemy, Run-D.M.C. and other artists draw on their hip-hop ancestry cultivating a sparseness and a sharpness that is counterpoint to West Coast flamboyance. The sound continues to thrive through innovative artists Nas, Mobb Deep and Jeru the Damaja.
