East Coast Hip Hop Bands and Artists List

East Coast Hip Hop Bands and Artists List

East Coast hip hop is a regional subgenre of hip hop music that originated in New York City during the 1970s. Hip hop is recognized to have originated and evolved first in the Bronx, New York City; East Coast hip hop only became a distinct subgenre after artists from other regions of the United States emerged with different styles.

In contrast to other styles, East Coast hip hop music has prioritized complex lyrics for attentive listening rather than beats for dancing. The main components of hip hop culture have been MCing, DJing, break dancing and graffiti. The term "East Coast hip hop" more specifically denotes hip hop originating from the East Coast of the Northeastern United States; while Southeastern states such as Georgia are also located on the East Coast, their hip hop scenes are instead considered Southern hip hop and rarely given the "East Coast hip hop" connotation.
