ALTERNATIVE HIP HOP (also known as ALTERNATIVE RAP) is a subgenre of hip hop music that encompasses the wide range of styles of hip hop that have not become identified as mainstream. AllMusic defines it as follows: "Alternative rap refers to hip hop groups that tend not to conform to any of the traditional forms of rap, such as gangsta , bass , hardcore , pop , and party rap . Instead, they blur genres drawing equally from funk and pop/rock , as well as jazz , soul , reggae , and even folk " Alternative hip hop developed in the late 1980s. Its commercial momentum was impeded by the then also newly emerging, significantly harder-edged West Coast gangsta rap . A resurgence came about in the late 1990s and early 2000s with the rejuvenated interest in indie music by the general public
