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 rappers and hip hop artists by selecting your city at right.
