The original YO! MTV Raps introduced a growing underground genre of music called rap in 1988. It was the first time fans could see their favorite rappers on screen, learn where they came from and how that influenced their lyrics, style, and values. Over 30 years later, hip hop is a dominating global force, influencing fashion trends, art, politics, sports, film, TV and technology.
