Hip-Hop is a rhythmic dance genre that originated in the New York Hip-Hop scene,
and has since been a staple class of music in nightclubs around the world. The genre was initially known as ‘disco rap’, owing to its rhythmic style along with elements of rap and beatboxing.

Big industry names like Snoop Dogg and Black Eyed Peas revolutionized the genre with the infusion of expressions and electronic influences.
But most importantly, the genre is perfect for a night of grooving at dance clubs and nightclubs. So, if you’re looking for the top Hip-Hop tracks to groove to at your next party, your search ends here.
