Whether music fans want to acknowledge it or not, hip hop is one of the most influential genres in the world. The music may not be listened to by everyone, but the culture is definitely recognized all over the globe. Recently, Mayor Bill de Blasio signed a bill, which renamed two streets in New York City after the rap genre, paying tribute to the pioneering of hip hop culture.
