Hip hop is fascinating. The stylized music topped by energetic rapping with rhythmic and rhyming speech can bring anyone on the dance floor. The other day, I was listening to some of the biggest hits of Kanye West and Drake. While enjoying the music, I thought it would be nice to make a roundup of some of the essential iPhone and iPad Hip Hop Apps for fans. And that’s how this article came into being.
