Settings of R&B/Hip/hop

Within R&B/Hip-hop glamorous, lavish settings associated with a celebrity lifestyle or the American Dream are often juxtaposed with gloomy, grey, more realistic locations. Raw concrete can be used, perhaps reflective of an artist’s pre-fame roots or struggle for money. This stark contrast can be seen in Live Your Life a music video featuring T.I and Rihanna. Baseball caps are also prominent in this video, a representation of the roots of R&B/Hip-hip in New York during the 60s and 70s.
