A specific era in hiphop history. There have been many discussions about the difference between the "Old School" and the New School". One accepted view was put to words in alt.rap by Charles L. Isbell:
All of time can be divided pretty easily this way:
- Everything before "Run DMC" (Run DMC 1984)
- Everything before "It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back" (Public Enemy 1988)

It gets harder after that, but maybe you'd have to label parallel movements with stuff like:

+ Everything before "Straight Outta Compton" (NWA 1988) and "Amerikkka's Most Wanted" (Ice Cube 1990) for the West Coast Gangsta Movement
+ Everything before "3 Feet High And Rising" (De La Soul 1989) and "Low End Theory" (A Tribe Called Quest 1991) for the Jazz/Bohemian Movement

Others seem to think we're about to enter the Everything before "93 'Til Infinity" (Souls of Mischief 1993) era for the Ascendency of Hieroglyphics, but I'll reserve judgement on that.

There are also several dark moments: MC Hammer ushered in the HipPop Era and Vanilla "No I really used to be rich; May I take your order?" Ice ushered in something unspeakable (Snow, if nothing else).

Hmmmmm, here's a way to pass the time: what are the key moments/movements and what albums/artists best represent them? How have they influenced the direction of rap? Making no value judgements, I'd have to say that the four most influential hiphop moments/movements are the ones I listed above and for obvious reasons.
Old School has some dope shit, Red Alert, Slick Rick, Whodini dope ass old school rappers

Technically,the place for child education,but realistically,the place where kids are being blackmailed into admitting their sexual tendencies and whatnot,because the penalty is that otherwise,the teachers will secretly put them into the media,and the kids will know what is really happening when they read books about crime,listen to songs with deep lyrics,etc.
We are all secretly embarrassed to death when we look back on our school days..enough said.

The world 'school' can be used to describe an important place that includes (but is not limited to) learning and may contain lots of books, (not to be confused with a library) but you don't care what happens in/to it.
Matt: "Hey, Joe"
Joe: "Hey, Matt"
Matt: "Did you hear about the White House being painted black?"
Joe: "Nah, the White House is school to me."

Take the most boring experience you've ever had then multiply it by,THEN bring a couple of freinds to suffer with you, THEN add the fcat that every time you screw up your parents give you hell. All the while school is giving you hell, ahhh, but wait what about the weekends you ask? Well add homework and projects TIMES 10, so those are now hell too, and if you don't do them then your every day hell is multiplied 100 fold in a continous cycle. Which results in the first about 17 years of your life EXCLUDING COLLEGE hell. In conclusion, School+You=Hell which is then put into the equation Hell+17 years=Childhood full of hell which is then simplified into SCHOOL=HELL
