Who thought that one day a niche genre born out of New York’s impoverished suburbs would go on to take over the world? Spreading faster than any epidemic known to man, rap has grown into, or is in the process of becoming (depending on how developed your regional scene is) one of the world’s most listened-to types of music, even thousands of kilometers away from its birthplace.
