Hip Hop & Google

"On August 11, 1973, an 18-year-old, Jamaican-American DJ who went by the name of Kool Herc threw a back-to-school jam at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx, New York. During his set, he decided to do something different. Instead of playing the songs in full, he played only their instrumental sections, or “breaks” - sections where he noticed the crowd went wild. During these “breaks” his friend Coke La Rock hyped up the crowd with a microphone. And with that, Hip Hop was born."

Not so long ago, in a galaxy far, far away (Harlem), I was literally just chilling with Coke La Rock in a park, listening to him chat with the legend Medusa The Gangsta Goddess and GlobalNLer Ms. Mirta "James" Ljulj about the these heady days.
