Hip Hop and Rock are two real famous styles of music that we have in pop culture. One of the things that really distinguished between these styles of music is the kind of instruments used in them. Hip Hop happens to be a genre of music that evolved majorly from the Bronx in New York as far back as the 70s. Hip Hop has gained quite some popularity among African Americans, Jamaican, and Latino Americans.

This style of music is usually used in expressing feelings, either socially or politically. Several musical practices are being initiated around this genre, such as looping, beatboxing, rapping, freestyling, and DJ work. On the other hand, the rock genre of music is older and has been dated back to the 40s. The guitars are majorly used to form the basic rhythms for the rock genre, while it's being supported by bass guitar and drums. The sub-genres of rock include blues, funk, alternative, jazz, glam, etc.
