Dj Kool Herc - The Father of Hip Hop


Working Next To 1520 Sedgwick Avenue In #TheBronx.... For All You #Rap & #HipHop Fanatics.......................................................... #DJKoolHerc is credited with helping to start hip hop and rap music at a house concert at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue on August 11, 1973. At the concert he was DJing and emceeing in the recreation room of 1520 Sedgwick Avenue. Sources have noted that while 1520 Sedgwick Avenue was not the actual birthplace of hip hop, (the genre developed slowly in several places in the 1970s) it was verified to be the place where one of the pivotal and formative events occurred that spurred hip hop culture forward. During a rally to save the building, DJ Kool Herc said, "1520 Sedgwick is the Bethlehem of Hip-Hop culture.".......... #History
