It developed as part of hip hop culture, a subculture defined by four key stylistic elements: MCing/rapping, DJing/scratching, break dancing, and graffiti writing.

Following a trip to the IDEA Space at Colorado College to take in the exhibit Rhythm Nations: Transnational Hip Hop In the Gallery, In the Street, and On the Stage the students of Community Prep created a video asking and answering these questions: What is Hip Hop? What does it look like? What does it sound like? Is Hip Hop more than bitches, hoes, money, and drugs? Community Prep School is an accredited alternative education campus in the Colorado Springs Region where they teach respect for each individual, cultivate authentic passions and activate purposeful plans for life. CPS is a tuition-free public charter school.
