There is no better way to start the year, than with a little Throwback Thursday. My goal this year is to do nothing but educate and have fun in this process. Now i know everybody has there New Year Resolution and that is all fine and dandy , some may follow thru and others may not but that’s okay because I am adding a resolution to your list now! Every Week you will get a history fact rather its it the Hip Hop culture or the African American culture you will learn something.
Of course in honor of our great Fleet DJs let me tell you how Hip Hop started. In the early 70s
Kool Herc a jamacian spinner discovered the “break”or the “merry go round” which is so common to get one song mixed into another. This was done with two turntables, now when this is happening usually the “DJ” is either rapping or giving you “The Hype”- dang they do more than you know! That my friends was the start of something new and revoultionary you see thats how other became MCs.
Yes you had rap where the people always told the stories but without the mixture of music and sound it wouldn’t be what it was or is today. So hats off to New York the city of the creators and further more hats off to all the DJS because without you Hip Hop just wouldnt be.
