1 definition by hip hop still lives

Top Definition
An urban subculture that began in New York in the 1970s and slowly rose to prominence throughout the 80s and 90s. With the recent rise of young mainstream rappers, it can stand as fact and not belief that although the dance aspect of this subculture is alive and constantly expanding, the hip hop music -- a genre of music popularized by rappers like Run-DMC and KRS One -- is currently in a comatose state, if not dead.
Rap is something you do. Hip Hop is something you live.

-- Kris Parker, aka KRS-One
