Capital H[edit]

It's spelled Hip Hop (We (Hip Hoppers) have been capitalizing the two words for years), this probably has something to do with the fact that they aren't just a couple of words they have a certain meaning (Hip = modern/relevant and Hop = movement) and placing the same emphasis on both words. Making it "Hip hop" would place more emphasis on relevance (modernness) and less on the movement itself so I'm pro capitalized "H"s. if you wanna suck a DONG!


Now however important beatboxing is to hip hop, why is it one of the "pillars?" There are only 4 pillars, djing, mcing, breakdancing and graffiti. Its ridiculous that beatboxing is included in the list, especially with no citations, i think it should be deleted.

You Can't Sit Down[edit]

Edits for Class Project[edit]

We are a group of undergraduates from the University of Washington who have been challenged with the task of making substantial edits to the Hip-Hop Culture wiki page. As such we will be submitting our edits on the main page and leaving our mark here to keep track of our work. Thank you for your understanding. Dream11team (talk) 00:34, 4 June 2014 (UTC)Dream11team
