The story behind hip-hop revolves around a basement party held in New York, on August 9th, 1973.
It was believed that it was the first-ever hip-hop party and where it all began.
A Jamaican DJ named Kool DJ Herc played songs with just the instrumental or breaks playing, while his friend Coke La Rock hyped up the crowd.
And that’s how hip hop started.
Hip-hop will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and will be on full display this weekend at the 65th annual Grammy Awards.
Expect to see performances from hip-hop legends such as Salt N Pepa, Rakim, Run DMC, Nelly, Too Short, Scarface, Ice-T, Missy Elliot, Busta Rhymes, Public Enemy, Method Man, Queen Latifah plus many new artists such as Lil Wayne, Lil Baby, Future and many more!
It’s good to see a genre I grew up loving, turning 50 years old and receiving the global props it deserves!
