Canadian Hip Hop is a genre of music that originated in Canada in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It is characterized by its use of samples from classic soul, funk, and jazz records, as well as its lyrical content which often focuses on social issues and the struggles of life in Canada. Canadian Hip Hop is often seen as a more conscious and socially aware form of rap music, with many artists using their music to address issues such as poverty, racism, and inequality. Canadian Hip Hop has also been heavily influenced by the American Hip Hop scene, with many artists taking inspiration from the likes of Nas, Jay-Z, and Eminem.
