MultiHop Highlights “Hip-Hop, Not Beatles, Had Greatest Influence On Pop Music”.

Screen Shot 2015-05-13 at 5.19.59 AM

Hip-hop, and not the Beatles, triggered the most important evolution in American pop music over the last half-century, according to a new study by researchers in Britain.

That’s based on a digital analysis of chord patterns, tonal shifts and other audio features (lyrics weren’t considered) of more than 17,000 songs on the U.S. pop charts between 1960 and 2010.

The explosion of hip-hop and rap music in 1991 had far more auditory influence on the popular songs that followed than the British Invasion of 1964 or the synth-pop surge of 1983 — the other two years that saw big shifts in musical styles, according to researchers at , Imperial College London and the online music service Last.fm.

Screen Shot 2015-05-13 at 4.40.06 AM

“Me and A-Trak are going to finish our [Federal Reserve] project up. He had some touring he needed to do. The Dipset stuff presented the opportunity so therefore we stopped what we was doing to attend our personal business but we’re going to get back on track with that. The A-Trak project will probably come out this fall, hopefully, and this December, we might put out Purple Haze 2. Maybe. If not, it’ll come out April. I may be doing an album based on the pantone color that I’m creating. I don’t want to speak too on it because it’s not signed, sealed and delivered. But we’ll definitely put out a solo Cam project in December, not sure if it’s going to be my final project, Purple Haze 2, which ‘will’ be my final project and being that we’re working on this pantone situation, we may do something in-between that but that’s not definite.”

Ariana Miyamoto was recently crowned as Japan Miss Universe. The 21-year-old is the first mixed-race woman to win the Miss Universe Japan competition. Ariana Miyamoto entered the Miss Universe Japan beauty contest after a mixed-race friend committed suicide.

“I didn’t feel any added pressure because the reason I took part in the pageant was my friend’s death. My goal was to raise awareness of racial discrimination,” added Miyamoto, who was bullied as a schoolgirl growing up in the port town of Sasebo, near Nagasaki.

Born in Japan to a Japanese mother and African American father, Miyamoto is a Japanese citizen, grew up in Japan, and identifies as Japanese. Described in local media as a “saishoku kenbi,” a woman blessed with both intelligence and beauty, she holds a 5th degree mastery of Japanese calligraphy.
