Hip Hop for People Who Don't Like Hip Hop

On August 11, 1973, Hip Hop Pioneer, DJ Kool Herc, was DJing his sister's back-to-school party in the Bronx when he did something that, according to legend, had never been done before. Using two turntables and two copies of the same record, he extended the "break" in a song, isolating what he considered to be the best part of the song, and repeated the break, over-and-over, going back-and-forth between the two records. The crowd was blown away and a new form of music, and culture, was born.
