The 20-year life cycle of hip-house

Posted By on 05.07.09 at 04:09 PM

This week's Sharp Darts looks at the resurgence of hip-house, a hybrid of hip-hop and house music that's been in the pop-cultural wilderness since the rise of gangsta rap two decades ago. Dirty South crunk and Chicago juke helped pave the way for hip-house's rebirth, and artists like Kid Cudi, MSTRKRFT with N.O.R.E., and Kid Sister are making it commercially viable again.

Make sure to check out the vintage video too. Fast Eddie talks about hip-house with so much excitement and enthusiasm that it's impossible not to feel it with him.
