Where to go, what to do on October 14 in Shanghai.
Boom Bap: 1989 vs 1999 @ C’s
Hip-hop took off in 1989 with ground-breaking releases, socially-aware gangsta rap, and incredible productions. In comparison, 1999 saw the rise of the independent hip-hop artist and mainstream albums that gradually broke away from generic rap styles. Boom Bap presents 1989 vs 1999, old school versus true school, for a look at how the genre has changed throughout the years.
