Is Hip Hop Loosing it’s Creativity?

Hip-hop has always been using beats/intrumentals and vocal sample from Reggae and Dancehall as well as collaborating with the Jamaican artists over the years, in fact hip-hop is an offspring of Jamaican music techniques ever since Jamaican-born Kool Herc brought the sound system culture to the bronx. A main example of Jamaican music techniques is: Toasting. Which is Rapping/MCing or Talking over the beat.

But more recently we are seeing a new surge of Dancehall music in the forefront of the music scenes and popping in up in the dance, pop and hip-hop charts world. But hip-hop seem to be the leading genre that is using or borrowing from dancehall at the moment, which bring forth the questions: Is Hip Hop Loosing it’s Creativity? and Does it Need to be Rejuvenated with the refreshing sounds that Dancehall music carries?

Without a shadow of a doubt the hot genre of the moment is "Tropical House", which at its core is essentially dancehall, it has been said that it is being called tropical house as a way of marketing dancehall to a wider audience or to the international market, and others are saying it is a way of rebranding dancehall. Either way mainstream european house music is using dancehall beats/instrumentals and dubbing Tropical house.

Tropical house has crossed over into hip-hop where dancehall is being sampled excessively and more Jamaican artists are being featured on high profile rap/hip-hop artist's records. 

Dancehall is becoming more of a pop sound cementing it self in the pop culture to the point where you can hear hints of it across most genre. You can hear it in pop, rock, hip hop, house, african beats etc. not to mention the other genres that derives directly from reggae dancehall.

High profile American artists using dancehall music at the moment are:
Rihanna - Work
Drake - Controlla
Beyonce - Hold Up
Tyga - 1 of 1
Kid Ink - Nasty ft. Jeremih , Spice
Dance music worldwide is looking to and following the Jamaica music scene to see where its taking dance music sonically

Other example of music influence by Jamaican music:
Tory Lanez - Luv
M.O - Who Do You Think Of?Lethal Bizzle Fester SkankSneakbo - Too CoolFifth Harmony - All In My Head (Flex) ft. Fetty WapR. City - Locked Away ft. Adam LevineBruno Mars - The Lazy Songtwenty one pilots: Ride
Krept & Konan - Freak Of The Week ft. Jeremih
Lethal Bizzle - Wobble

Music Blogs That Want YOUR Music!
Getting your music heard is hard. Getting your music heard by the right people is even harder. You hear so many blogs, journalists and other industry big names complaining about unsolicited PR emails from bands, so it’s difficult to know where to tread. This is why we have set up this blog post, containing info and links to all the influential sites and blogs who not only accept these emails but welcome them. But before you start emailing, here’s a quick word of warning. Never under any circumstances send a group email. It may save you time, but putting all these addresses into a BCC field and firing over a group email would burn more bridges than it would build. Spend some time looking at each site individually, see what sort of music they are into and try to relate. If you are a sensitive singer songwriter crooning over an acoustic guitar, don’t contact a hip-hop blog. Find them on Twitter, look at their recent articles, and try and find common gro…
