My main interest in music has always been . When I go to
record stores, I have a hard time finding . Unlike other music
categories, hip-hop does not have its own category. Hip-hop artists can
sometimes be found under the category of RAP music. In most cases, all you
will find is rap artists like Master P, Puff Daddy, and other various rap
performers. Other rap/hip-hop artists like the Beastie Boys are harder to
find. In this report, I plan to prove why rap/hip-hop artist like the
Beastie Boys are less known and heard of than rap artists like Master P and
Puff Daddy.

First of all, I would like to define hip hop and briefly go over its
history. Hip-hop developed in the Bronx of New York and has been around

about one famous hip-hop group that I personally like. This group existed
during the beginning growth of hip-hop, but they were not as popular then.
This group is the Beastie Boys. Maybe they were not as popular because they
began as punk rock artists and they were white. Rappers in the eighties
were mainly Black. The Beastie Boys began their hip hop career just after
Run DMC did. The Beastie Boys were influenced by Run DMC, and when they
became popular they got their chance to perform with them. Def Jam
Records produced the Beastie Boys first hip-hop album, License to Ill. The
Beastie Boys remained popular for a short while until they were not heard
of as much. I think that the Beastie Boys are unique because they make and
