This paper analyzes its popularity from four aspects: the background of epoch and the cyber space in life; the localization of hip-hop culture; meeting the demand of young people; cultural industry. Based on these, it offers some suggestions for the Chinese youth’s pursuit of hip-hop culture, thus directing them to treat the influence of hip-hop culture rationally.
