Hip Hop might have never been created without the influence of a certain Jamaican, or at least it might not exist as we now know it. As a Jamaican I was very interested to find out just how much influence my country of birth had on the creation of this genre of music. From my research, this is what I discovered:

Dude there's not many ways to change it as we know it. If hip hop started off different humans are so innovative we would've eventually gotten to the same point. Now talk about some music changing ARTISTS then you should go with Michael Jackson, TwoPac, eminem, and so many more. But basically your man was just another guy in a line of hip hop artists. No offense just the truth.

Well the article does say "it might not exist as we now know it". I agree it would probably be on the same level but it would be different, perhaps even known as something else.Can't deny his strong influence on the creation of the genre as we know it today.

I agree but the only thing is maybe it would or maybe it wouldn't be the same. Either way your right can't deny his or anyone else for that matter but him as his strong influence
