In 1988, hip-hop groups such as the N.W.A and the public enemy had gained popularity by continually dropping hard-hitting polemics from coast to coast. With many other hip-hop artists launching their careers to rap royalty status, a new breed of music hip-house was emerging in Chicago. Hip house genre was popularized by Fast Eddie, an artist from the west side of Chicago. The genre borrows a lot from the hip hop and house music. It was popular due to producers using beats and tempos from both hip-hop and house music to allow artists to rap over more energized beats with club-centric lyrics. Soon, it outgrew its Chicago foundation and went to conquer other places such as New York, where famous rap artists embraced the movement.
