West Coast hip hop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (912 words)
West Coast hip hop, also known as California hip hop or West Coast rap, is a style of hip hop that originated in Los Angeles, California in the 1980s.
West Coast hip hop was also contributed to by scenes based in the Bay Area and Seattle, Washington, which produced artists such as MC Hammer and Sir Mixalot.
As a result of this split, major West Coast cities like San Francisco and LA are now home to not one but multiple hip hop scenes, which are differentiated from each other as much by their politics as by their music.
West Coast Swing Dance (587 words)
West Coast Swing is also danced to 90’s music (hip-hop and techno) as well as Disco music.
Most swing dances cover a circular space, but West Coast Swing and Shag are referred to as Slot dances and remain in a narrow space (visualize a railroad track or diving board).
West Coast Swing is based on 6-count passes and 8-count whips and is danced in a “slot” or linear orientation, as opposed to circular.
