Dj Kool Herc - The Father of Hip Hop


February 11, 2016: #DJKoolHerc is considered by many to be the father of hip-hop. He created the "break" and is credited as the originator of hip-hop music. On August 11, 1973, Kool Herc was a DJ/MC at a party on Sedgwick Avenue. This new & innovative musical style marked the start of a cultural revolution. Him along with other hip-hop pioneers such as #GrandmasterFlash and #AfrikaBambaataa helped pave the way for hip-hop music to be as big as it is today. Without this man, we would've never seen rap legends such as Nas, 2pac, The Notorious B.I.G., Kendrick Lamar, KRS One, J. Cole, and others. Thank you, DJ Kool Herc.🙏🏽🇯🇲#BlackHistoryMonth #Day11 #KoolHerc #DJ #MC #hiphop #rap #music #sketch #art #drawing #newyork #oldschoolhiphop #hiphopculture #hiphopjunkie #ipsy #hiphophead #blackhistory #thankyou #Jamaica #original #culture #hiphopmusic #likes #comments #follow #hiphopappeciation
