Why You Should Play Hip Hop at Your Wedding

The Hip Hop genre is the essence of cross-genre mixing. Whether you’re rocking out to Outkast, Jay-Z, Beyoncé or The Sugarhill Gang, we all have been influenced by this unique and increasingly-popular genre.

The origin of Hip Hop stems from DJs experimenting and playing a mix of Breaks, Funk, Latin, R&B, Rock, and Soul. Because this genre uses so many different genres as its base, every client that I’ve spun for always requests a good amount of hip hop at their weddings.

An important part of choosing the wedding soundtrack is to include a wide variety of music that makes the couple-and their guests-happy. With that being said, almost all hip hop music has sampled some aspect of other musical genres, so how can you go wrong?
