The birth of Hip Hop all started out at a Back to School party in the Bronx, New York by DJ Kool Herc on the 11th August 1973. Google illustrates the history of hip hop music through a Google Doodle that they have made to mark this milestone. You can celebrate by making your own music from this doodle turntable that the search engine has made, with the choice of different beats. Kool Herc was 18 at the time and he wanted to do something different and started spinning instrumentals using two turntables and this is where he invented “beat breaks” to make the music last longer and the style of break dancing was formed. At the party, his friend Master of Ceremonies started spitting rhymes and made the crowd go wild. “Hip Hop was born” as Google Doodle says!
Hip Hop music, fashion, art and culture has come a long way since it has emerged from that time. The 80s and 90s brought through Run DMC, Salt N Pepa, NWA, Tu-Pac, DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince, Vanilla Ice and Arrested Development as well as so many more talented artists. In the way that Run DMC raps in his song, “It’s like that and that’s the way it is.”
