Dj Kool Herc - The Father of Hip Hop


🎼🎢🎧🎀THE FOUNDER OF HIP-HOP🎀🎧🎢🎼 Kool DJ Herc is the originator of breakbeat DJing, the essence of hip-hop. By isolating and repeating the "breaks," or most danceable parts, of funk records by Mandrill, James Brown, and the Jimmy Castor Bunch, Herc created the prototype for modern-day hip-hop. Though others such as Grandmaster Flash perfected and elevated the technique, it was Herc who is credited for its creation. Beginning his DJing career in the early '70s at a time when disco was king, Herc immediately distinguished himself by spinning late-'60s funk records of James Brown and Mandrill and isolating their breaks. Among other things, Herc was notorious for throwing all-night parties and invariably present at a Kool Herc party during mid-'70s were usually young dancers (called b-boys) who were early incarnations of the breakdancers of the '80s. Another Kool Herc attraction was his mammoth sound system which was capable of overtaking a party-goer's body, making them literally feel the music. @kooldjherc WE SALUTE YOU MY BROTHA AND WE THANK AND LOVE YOU WITH ALL OUR HEARTS FOR GIVING US THE TRUE MEANING OF MUSIC, HIP-HOP!😘😘😘 #hiphop #djkoolherc #bronx #newyork #yes #nyc #love #amazing #music #rap #bboy #breakdance #dj #smile #cute #photooftheday #bestoftheday #quoteoftheday #instamood #instagood #followme #followback #follow #f4f #l4l #likes #like4like #followher #hiphopfollowers #followforfollow From @ladysnub609 & @snubff1
