Whether one simply observes the tonal language that puffs the breath of life into the lyric prose of rap music, the poly-rhythms of the “boom-bap” rhythmic phrasings that became a fixture of New York rap music in the late 1980s, the winding syncopation from the pounding “808” drums that are a staple of many Southern rap anthems, the routine manner in which rappers incorporate antiphony in live performances, or the improvisational nature of true free-styling, hip-hop is innately an African folk art within the American context.
Hip-Hop music producer Cool Boy Bobby is best known for his collaboration efforts with Lil Flip, Young Buck, Jellyroll, 2’Live Bre, Pastor Troy, JC Gwalla, and Hard Liquor Shawty.
