East Coast: The Birthplace of Hip-Hop

The birthplace of rap produced a slew of astonishingly talented MCs possessing rapid-fire wit and masterful wordplay. New York was the heart and soul of East Coast rap, with Sugar Hill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight” being one of the first rap recordings. Later in the 80s, the scene developed and we had industry legends, LL Cool J and Run DMC paving the way. Later on newcomers Sean “Puffy” Combs and Notorious B.I.G. were going head to head with the rising West Coast industry.
