R b hip hop

R&B/Hip-Hop

  • Rhythm & Blues is a term used to describe the blues-influenced form of music predominantly performed by African-Americans since the late 1930s. The term 'Rhythm and Blues' was first introduced into the American lexicon in the late 1940s.

  • The upbeat popular music performed by African American artists was a combination of both Jazz and the Blues. Over time the name was shortened to R&B as a matter of convenience.


R b hip hop cont

R&B/Hip-Hop Cont.

  • Hip-hop has always been about making something out of little or nothing. Few knew that that something would become the biggest pop music innovation since rock and roll in the 1950s.

  • Hip-hop was born in New York City in the mid-1970s as a vehicle for inner-city youth to throw parties on their blocks and at area clubs, and for them to make money as DJs and promoters. Early hip-hop was largely a "throw-your-hands-in-the-air" music, however, hip-hop remained largely ignored outside of New York City's ghettoes until 1979.

  • Now a billion-dollar industry, hip-hop has become the voice of young people on the planet breaking down racial, ethnic, gender, class, language and regional barriers. Hip-hop is manifest everywhere, pushing the sales of entities as different as high profile designers and soft drinks, and turning rappers like Will Smith and LL Cool J into box-office stars. Like rock and roll in the 1950s, hip-hop has become the great cultural bridge in these times.


Music influences relationships

Music Influences & Relationships

  • Music is very influential and symbolizes different feelings for everyone.

  • Some people may listen to music just because they are bored or they like the beat; others listen to it for the lyrics and the expression the artist is trying to send out.

  • Musicians write, sing, or rap about what they have been threw as a child, how they were raised, struggles they had to overcome, society problems, and what they see and hear throughout their lives. They are sending a message to those who can relate in certain situations.

  • Music appeals to everyone and can be an escape for people.

  • Many songwriters express raw emotion in their music, especially when writing about failed relationships or unrequited romances. Exposure to such lyrics can be difficult for someone going through a trying time in his life.

Domestic violence abuse

Domestic Violence & Abuse

  • “Love the Way You Lie” is about a physically and mentally abusive relationship that many women can relate to.

  • Abuse can be physical, emotional, or sexual.

  • Physical abuse means any form of violence such as hitting, punching, pulling hair, and kicking.

  • Emotional abuse can be difficult to recognize because it doesn't leave any visible scars. Threats, intimidation, putdowns, and betrayal are all forms of emotional abuse that can be harmful.

  • The first step in getting out of an abusive relationship is to realize that you have the right to be treated with respect and not be physically or emotionally harmed by another person.

Infidelity

Infidelity

  • “The Way that I Love You,” “4 A.M.,” & “Resentment” are all songs about cheating.

  • Infidelity is becoming more common among people under 30.  Many experts believe this increase in cheating is due to greater opportunity (time spent away from a spouse) and young people developing the habit of having multiple sexual partners before they get married.

  • Songs such as these are portraying the message to society that infidelity should be expected in relationships.

Mad-Neyo

So both of us are mad for nothing (fighting for)nothing, (crying for)nothing...

Fighting communication

Fighting & Communication

  • “Mad” is about a couple who are constantly arguing and fighting.

  • In many cases couples say things and do things that would not be acceptable with anyone else. These things can destroy a relationship.

  • Fighting makes anger habitual and yelling a standard practice. When people fight, they use their energy for recrimination and abuse, rather than real communication that could strengthen the ties between themselves.


Media relationships

Media & Relationships

  • These songs are examples of unhealthy relationships that people are involved in everyday and does not portray a realistic view of love and healthy partnerships.

  • The songs portray passionate love rather than companionate love.

  • Abuse, cheating, fighting, and lack of communication are all negative influences and can destroy a relationship instead of strengthening it.


Media relationships cont

Media & Relationships Cont.

  • Couples need to be aware of outside influences from the media since they can have a negative impact on relationships.

  • Relying on the media definitions of love can make people think that infidelity, abuse, and fighting are the norm in relationships and that they are to be expected.

  • For a healthy relationship couples must build a foundation based on respect, trust, common goals, and communication.

  • Occasionally it is healthy to set aside time to check in with each other on changing expectations and goals. If a couple ignores difficult topics for too long, their relationship is likely to drift without noticing.
