Asian beat hip-hopping to America

BY CARY DARLING, Miami Herald

Bend it like Jay-Z.

On his latest single, Beware of the Boys, the American rapper busts his rhymes over East Asian rhythms called bhangra, the infectious, electronic updating of India's Punjabi folk music. <a href=http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/entertainment/5738656.htm target=_blank>more</a>

Dancer puts his body to work
By AMANDA KYNE for The New Zealand Herald

Stardom is tapping on Richard Cesan's window.

The 17-year-old urban funk tapper is somersaulting into the world of professional dance - the only career he sees in his future.

"It's what I do best. I get a lot of enjoyment out of it so I might as well make it my career."

Dragged along to dance classes at four, Cesan spent his afternoons with girls doing ballet, tap and jazz lessons.

Sissy? Definitely not. He did get some lip, but his desire to be faster and better helped him waltz past the peer pressure.

Oakland hip-hop dance troupe advances to world finals
Club One dancers 'did everything off the skin. By Shadi Rahimi for The Argus

OAKLAND -- It didn't matter that they didn't have the clothes, transportation or money to compete. Members of a nonprofit Oakland hip-hop dance troupe knew that if they could just make it to Los Angeles, they could win at the second annual USA Hip-Hop Crew Championships.
And they did. At their first competition together, dancers in three groups led by instructors from Club One Fitness in Oakland beat 20 teams to place second in all age categories at the May championships. They will compete against 25 to 30 teams in the World Hip-Hop Championships in Miami on Aug. 2-3.

Innovators show off their legendary twists and turns of hip-hop

Paloma McGregor
Cleveland Plain Dealer

Back in the day - the 1970s and '80s, that is - select groups of urban youth battled for glory by creating the most innovative and daring dance moves they could: spinning on their heads, isolating body parts as if they were rusty robots and catapulting themselves through the air with Olympic flair. <a href=http://www.cleveland.com/artsandevents/plaindealer/index.ssf?/base/entertainment/1059471457151032.xml target=_blank>more</a>

Hip-Hop Revisits Dance-Floor Success
R&B and hip-hop acts are returning to the dance floor. By Michael Paoletta for Reuters

Led by such influential producers as the Neptunes, Sean "P. Diddy" Combs and Mark Ronson, R&B/hip-hop artists are scoring successes on the Billboard dance charts.

Among those expanding their audiences with new beats are Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, Jill Scott, Angie Stone, Beyonce and Kelis.

"Musical hybrids are happening all the time," Ronson says. "Look at how many people are attempting to clone the Neptunes' progressive club sound. We're seeing more and more hip-hop artists and producers play around with funky electro grooves -- and the tempo is increasing."

By DAVID OVALLE
The Miami Herald

Brimstone127 is Miami hip-hop. And he isn't./---/

He is because, in the early 1990s, he and his crew, Plan Be, bolstered the local scene by performing with respected out-of-town acts such as Fu-Schnickens, Positive K and Das EFX.

Why hip-hop works as registration´

The Philadelphia Inquirer

There is good news, however, concerning an evolving trend. That trend involves voters between the ages of 18 to 30. They are registering to vote in record numbers in major urban centers. In the past this demographic has been referred to as Generation X or Generation Y. In hip-hop culture, we refer to the 18- to 30-year-olds of today as Generation E: the Generation of Empowerment, Energy and Excellence.
