For those unfamiliar with Bounce, it is a fairly unique strain of club-oriented hip-hop that originated in New Orleans sometime around 1991 with MC TT Tucker’s “”Where Dey At.”" Almost 20 years later, Bounce still dominates the urban club and block party scene in New Orleans with very little major label backing. Just as Baltimore Club is based on the Lyn Collins’ “Think” break and the Gaz “Sing Sing” break, Bounce beats are based on samples from The Showboy’s “Drag Rap” (aka “Triggerman”) and Derek B’s “Rock The Beat” drum break (more commonly known as “the Brown Beat”). The best club music seems almost always to thrive on calculated simplicity, and Bounce is no exception, relying on MC work that is based on simple call and response chants, straightforward rhyme schemes/patterns, and repetitive dance refrains.
