Today...Hip-Hop celebrates 44 years!
According to GOOGLE, "an 18-year-old, Jamaican-American DJ who went by the name of Kool Herc threw a back-to-school jam at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx, New York on August 11, 1973, During his set, he decided to do something different. Instead of playing the songs in full, he played only their instrumental sections, or “breaks” - sections where he noticed the crowd went wild. During these “breaks” his friend Coke La Rock hyped up the crowd with a microphone. And with that, Hip Hop was born."
So Happy Birthday to the DOPEST musical genre out there. As a gift.....GOOGLE is allowing you to play with the turn tables on their GOOGLE Doodle. Have fun!
