Old School Rap/Hip-Hop Music

The label Old School is a compliment and a curse, given to any artist whose style is influential yet passé. Originally, it referred to the South Bronx youth who created hip-hop culture in the mid-'70s featuring of "the four elements" - DJ'ing, graffiti, MC'ing & breakdancing. This era culminated in Sugarhill Gang's 1979 classic "Rapper's Delight."
