Hip-Hop turns 44… a Jamaican credited

by August 11th, 2017

In celebration of Hip-hop’s 44th anniversary, less than a handful of rappers have paid homage to Jamaican born Clive Campbell better known as Dj Kool Herc.

Herc is credited with originating hip-hop music in the early 1970s in the Bronx, New York.

Rapper Busta Rhymes via his official Instagram said “thank you for giving birth to our culture of hip hop.” The caption was made under a video which shows Dj Kool Herc telling the tale of how hip-hop started.  

Meanwhile, Google celebrated the genre using their famous search engine logo to represent the culture.
