Dj Kool Herc - The Father of Hip Hop

No discussion of Hip Hop can be complete without including Herc. Accredited as the world’s first Hip Hop DJ, Jamaican-American DJ Kool Herc began hosting community parties in the South Bronx in the early 1970’s. His trademark ‘merry-go-round’ style of mixing records (in which the drum solo ‘breaks’ of a funk song are looped back-to-back) can be valued as a pivotal evolution in Hip Hop, as the extension of the break essentially created the space for dancers to break and MCs to rap. He continues to DJ, organize, and advocate for true Hip Hop culture to this day #educate #DJKoolHerc #hiphopfun
