Here is more of the Caribbean community at CCNY. This is last year’s carnival celebration. The music isn’t necessarily Hip Hop, but it has some similar elements. You see the crowd jumping and several guys standing, shouting and amping up the party. I imagine that was how Coke La Rock and DJ Kool Herc ran block parties. There is a sense of call and response somewhat present in Hip Hop music.
