Hip-hop and rock are two of the many genres of music that evolved between the 1960s and 1970s. Both emphasize the importance of the use of instruments. These two musical genres originated in the United States and are constantly evolving.

Hip-hop, which was popularly introduced to New York in the 1970s, has a very interesting history. Although most people believed that it began in the Bronx, New York, the history of hip-hop music dates back to the slavery period. African-Americans on plantations and farms began rapping and banging on boxes, since they could not obtain any musical instruments.

The advancement of these two musical genres greatly influences the cultures of each country. Although some people, especially the old ones, consider rock music to be very disturbing and insane, there are actually good qualities if you keep trying to listen with this kind of music. And in hip hop, teens and youth are its number one fans because of its cool and smooth beat.

Below are the rap legends that respect Rock n’ Roll:


Kendrick Lamar

Following a celebrated collaboration at the Grammys, Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons began a rock and rap relationship and reunited once again on the Saturday Night Live stage, where they performed their remix of the Dragons’ “Radioactive.”


In the mid-80s Aerosmith joined forces with Run DMC for their version of “Walk this way.” The first popular crossover between rock and rap, which marked a turning point not only for the future development of these crossover styles, but also for the music industry itself, which at the time gave priority to rock while rap had still a limited scope, according to the parameters dictated by MTV at the time.


Snoop Dogg

Highest rapper that the music history ever seen. Without fear of being wrong, we could assure you that with the collaboration of Rage Against The Machine and Snoop Dogg, a new musical relationship has been created, one to which the public and time will be in charge of giving it a corresponding name.



One of the best compositions from Coldplay’s fourth studio album: “Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends”. Lost! It is a song that brings together a large part of the musical characteristics of the British band, with an organ riff, tribal drums and a minimalist rhythm, as well as the use of exotic instrumentation. The collaboration with one of the most important American rappers of the first decade of the 21st century, Jay Z, who sings some verses in the final part of the song, gives the song a different touch. This is without a doubt one of Coldplay’s most underrated collaborations.


Method Man

“N 2 Gether Now”, a somewhat funny or silly video. Fred falls on the couch where Method Man was playing video games and they start a fight where they both fly with each blow. The rap continues and well from here the rapper’s collaboration with Limp Bizkit was historic.
