15 Hip-Hop Television Theme Songs

Martin

During the 1990s, the Fox television network attempted to counter-program the overtly-Caucasian anti-diversity of NBC’s “Must-See-TV” lineup on Thursday nights. Instead, Fox aired a block of sitcoms and dramas that starred and featured people of color that African-American and Latino viewers flocked to in mass. Comedian Martin Lawrence’s popular sitcom, Martin, anchored the programming on Fox’s Thursday nights. The show would be kicked off to the hip-hop sounds of the show’s theme song that would feature DJ scratching and vocal effects to set the tone of the show.
