It was 44 years ago TODAY that DJ Kool Herc had brought two turntables & a microphone to a birthday party for his sister Cindy in the recreation room at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx, NY. And the rest is history...

My parents have told me that I was conceived in August of 1973.




I will throw this tidbit out there there though...

November 12, 1974 = Official birthday of HipHop as a CULTURE.

"It may have been 44 years since Kool Herc did that party, but you cant say that HipHop as a culture is 44 years old. Much respect to Kool Herc and what he has done, but it wasn't a culture yet, nor did it have a name. The actual fact is that HipHop as a culture will be 43 years old in November. The word "HipHop" wasn't used in 1973. The word was first coined/used by Lovebug Starski and Keith Cowboy who happened to be using it in their raps at the time circa Fall 1974. Afrika Bambaataa flipped the term "HipHop" and made it a Culture and brought together the four main elements: DJing, Breaking, Graffiti, MCing, and later on the 5th element which is Knowledge, Culture, Overstanding. Along with the principles of Peace, Unity, Love, and Having Fun." - bboyronron

Here's a mix I made exactly 6 years ago of songs about HipHop Music & Culture to celebrate HipHop's birthday. This mix was made with all vinyl except the last song which is played off cd...

Nice to see Google giving Hip Hop some recognition. They got a whole DJing game set up, pretty cool for a 1 day Google Doodle
