I will look into the influences that Saudi Rappers ( from the west side ) have undertaken in relation to the large forces of globalization from the west that lead to the creation of Saudi Rap & hip hop culture . A semiotic analysis on a group of selected rappers ( 1 subject from Jeddah and another from Mecca ) . The subject will be considered through looking at the topics and ideas being sung about, the way the rappers dress as well as the spaces in which they created this phenomena.

By the summer of 1973, DJ Kool Herc had been using and refining his break-beat style for the better part of a year. His sister’s party on August 11, however, put him before his biggest crowd ever and with the most powerful sound system he’d ever worked. It was the success of that party that would begin a grassroots musical revolution, fully six years before the term “hip hop” even entered the popular vocabulary.
The topic of the essay is about the contradictions in hip hop. There are many positives in hip hop but these positives may contradict with the negatives. For example, many of the rappers rap and sing about the realities of their life like dropping out of school - but then these same rappers give money to schools. There are rappers that make a lot of money but rarely do you see them giving back to the communities that make them rich.
