Hip Hop And Rap Artists List nd Directory is a helpful page that presents links to all the hip hop and rap artists we have covered here on classicrockhistory.com. As music historians we are very much aware of the connection to rock and roll from all styles of music and vice versa. Classic Rock music came out of the blues, jazz and swing. It’s an ongoing story that is defined by musical artists who break ground by merging genres that always eventually develop new styles of music. It’s important to cover it all. It’s’ what we have always done and will continue to do. While our hip-hop and rap section is not as large as our rock section, it will continue to grow over time. Clicking on any artist names will take you to articles on that artist. We have also included many r&b artists on this list and some pop artists that have crossed over into the hip-hop genres at times.
