Celebrations have been sounding off for Hip-Hop's 50th birthday. Dj Cool Herc started a cultural revolution in the Bronx with music. In August, 1973, the first elements of hip-hop emerged when Clive Campbell, known as DJ Cool Herc, played music at his sister's back-to-school party in the Bronx, showcasing his innovative turntable skills. He called his turntable trick the Merry-GO-Round. Years later, it became known as the “break beat,”.
Hip-Hop is not just music. It's a culture which also includes emceeing, deejaying, graffiti writing beatboxing, fashion, iconic dances, podcast, and so much more.
