About Booking Hip Hop Groups
Hip hop and rap music originated in New York City in the 1970s, and continues to gravitate around the inner cities in urban markets on the East and West coasts of the U.S. such as New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston and other locations. There are two types of freestyle rapping: one is scripted, the other is typically referred to as freestyling, and uses improvised lyrics. Battle rapping, which is often freestyle, is the competition between two or more rappers in front of an audience, and can be seen on TV shows such as BET's 106 and Park and MTV's DFX. Find hiphop groups by selecting your city at right.
Some things to consider when hiring a Hip Hop Group are to make sure you listen to audio and watch video clips. This will ensure that you truly do book the best for your next event! Next, you want to get references. Talk to people in the area about the band and get feedback. Finally, get a contract. Many professional Hip Hop Groups require a deposit to secure them at your next event. Make sure to read through the contract carefully before contracting the band for your party.
