In 1991 the underground movement became an official genre due to the success of acid jazz group The Brand New Heavies. In the early 1990's the genre became mainstream and had gained popularity in the US. Several acid jazz groups emerged in the US including Digable Planets and A Tribe Called Quest.

Bollywood, also known as Hindi film cinema, is one of the largest film production centers in the world. Bollywood is not the only film producer in India, but it is one of the largest. Bollywood is located in Mumbai, India - formally known as Bombay. The name was created by combining the "B" from Bombay with Hollywood - America's film production center. The history of Bollywood goes back to the early 1930's when it was called Tollywood - the film industry was based in Tallygunge, Calcutta at the time. In the 1970's Bollywood was producing much more commercial cinema, and America fell second to India in film production. By the 2000's the Bollywood was popular across the world, which lead to big investments in technology. Most Bollywood movies are musicals, usually the music is produced in a studio, and the actors lip-sync for the films. The music from these movies has been heavily sampled, particularly in hip-hop music.
