The Crucial Conflict Culture

The Crucial Conflict Culture

August, 18, 2011 by: Tags: , , , , , , , 0 Comments

Wildstyle, Kilo, Never, and Coldhard make up the Chicago-native Crucial Conflict. All born and raised on the West Side of Chicago, the boys of Crucial Conflict have left their mark as one of the most notable Hip Hop groups in Chicago. As a hip hop group, their inspiration actually comes from the country. In fact, they have their own culture described by RODEO, Giddy-Up, and Barn.

RODEO stands for Rhymes of Dirty English Organization, in which Coldhard describes as a wild hop-a-long version of hip hop that is made to motivate and inspire. Fab 5 Freddy, an American hip hop historian, describes Giddy-Up:  ”The giddy-up is like a tribal dance; you see the spirit hit these brothers like it hits a gospel singer struck by the Holy Ghost. Crucial Conflict has tapped in to an energy of Black music that rappers haven’t gotten before.” The Barn is Crucial Conflicts private social club. Their first hit single “Hay” from their album The Final Tic describes all the good times Crucial Conflict had in the Barn with hay.

This country-Western inspiration along with the influences of Snoop Dogg and Rakim made Crucial Conflict a unique rap group, and like Fab 5 Freddy once said, ”These definitely ain’t your average niggaz with a beat!”
