Dj Kool Herc - The Father of Hip Hop


So proud and honored, when “Clive Campbell” a.k.a @kooldjherc the “Father of Hip Hop” show love for my work!!! He is the true originator of the “BREAKBEATS” when with two copies of the same record he began to play the “break section” longer for the crowd. That helped dancers, he named himself “Break boys” or “B.BOYS”, to show their skills since the first “BLOCK PARTY” on 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, Bronx NYC in August 1973! It being the early form of looping that originate sampling and help to grow, what will be called later “HIP HOP” music and culture, with other great DJ like Africa Bambaataa and Jazzy Jay from the “Zulu Nation”… #clivecampbell #djkoolherc #koolherc #fatherofhiphop #breakbeats #breakbeatsoriginator #bboy #blockparties #blockparty #1520sedgwickavenue #hiphop #africabambaataa #jazzyjay #zulunation #universalzulunation #damienpaillard
