Hip house, also known as house rap, is a musical genre that mixes elements of house music and hip-hop. The style rose to prominence during the 1980s in New York and Chicago. However, in the UK, the first officially credited hip house track was 1987's Rok Da House by UK producers the Beatmasters featuring British female emcees the Cookie Crew.

Minor controversy ensued in 1989 when a U.S. record called "Turn Up The Bass" by Tyree Cooper featuring Kool Rock Steady claimed it was the "first hip house record on vinyl." The Beatmasters disputed this, pointing out that "Rok da House" had originally been written and pressed to vinyl in 1986. The outfit responded by releasing "Who’s in the House?" featuring British emcee Merlin, containing the dis "Watch Out, Tyree-we come faster, this is the sound of the true Beatmasters". More claims to the hip-house crown were subsequently laid down in tracks by Fast Eddie, Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock, and Toni Scott.

In reality, the earliest hip house track is "Holiday Rap" by MC Miker G & DJ Sven, as it marks the first time in history of hip-hop when rapped lyrics were used in a pro-house composition (today Madonna's "Holiday" is considered to be the earliest deviation of pop music into house).

But it on iTunes now: Of all the fresh talent on the dance music scene, multi-talented Dutch DJ/producer Vato Gonzalez - the man who single-handedly built a label, event and music genre called 'Dirty House' in recent years - is fast becoming the cream of the crop. Foreign Beggars are a critically acclaimed rap group from London who won 'Best New Act' at the 2004 UK Hip Hop awards and were voted best group at the Lyric Pad Hip Hop awards in 2005. Since then the group have gone on to collaborate with many stars of the Dance/Hip-Hop scene as well as releasing six albums. And now 'Badman Riddim (Jump)' brings them together; after gaining massive Radio 1 specialist support as an instrumental from the likes of Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Pete Tong, MistaJam and Toddla T, as well as scoring well over 1.5 million views on YouTube, it's easy to see why the single is setting up to be one of the biggest tracks of 2011 when you throw in the talent and lyrical prowess of Foreign Beggars. Stay tuned for Badman Riddim (Jump), released on 19th June on Ministry of Sound / Levels Recordings.

P Money and Ed Sheeran - Family From his 'No.5 Collaborations Project' EP: Producer: Jake Gosling LYRICS: Hmm let me go, To see my family. Please Father let me go, As my mother sleeps. I don't know about days gone, But round here nobody lives twice. When your gone, your gone, without no bye, Because only a judge can give you life. This is my advice, Trust me, I nearly lost my life. 3 weeks after I got this rhyme, Pissed like I had way too much wine. Wished that II didn't get one, Anyway, I was going to The Macbeth booked for a set, Even though I didn't have a set one. Skream hit the decks, I was like check one. Put on a show, but it weren't my best one. Left it, dropped off Blacks at his destination, Then I was off to the next one, 20 minutes later I was on the M1, Tired. But I kept on going, Fell asleep without even knowing. No motion in my face, No movement in my legs, but the car still kept going. Woke up, Lorry, Flash, Panic, Break, Skid, Crash, Skidded, More, Bang, Smash, Out, Cold, Ribs, Cracked, Ouch. I was in so much pain, Crawled out of a Megan that now looked like a Mini, When I was still on the first lane. Baffled, didn't even know my name. Fainted, too much shock in my brain. Surrounded by paramedics and feds, Trying to get up but fainted again. I just want you to take a second, hear me out. Don't think I'm happy cuz I smile when you see me out. I've had serious madnesses where I've nearly disappeared, Oh I'm begging Lord to save me and let me <b>...</b>
