  • Today rap means saying rhymes to the beat of music making it one of the four major elements within hip hop culture. Because the other elements (deejaying, breakdancing and graffiti) aren’t as widespread, the words Hip Hop and Rap have been used interchangeably over the years.
  • The word rap wasn’t always used to describe this activity. The act of rhyming to the beat of music was initially called emceeing. The term rap first became associated with Hip Hop around 1979.

The Origin of "Made From Scratch"

The phrase "made from scratch", as we know refers to food that required manual clawing of ingredients.

No one knows who started it and how it propagated but its earliest written mention was from an article in 1946 in The New York Times claiming that "the old-fashioned style of cooking from scratch, as it were, without frozen or canned products-- is on the wane" during the height of TV dinners.
