August 11, 1973: The Birth of Hip-Hop
On this day in 1973, DJ Kool Herc dropped a new sound that changed history. While DJ’ing at his sister’s back-to-school party, Herc tried something new on the turntable: he extended an instrumental beat (scratching the track) to let people dance longer (break dancing) and began MC’ing (rapping) during the extended breakdancing. And so DJ Kool Herc set hip-hop on its dynamic evolution towards the expressive art form it is today.
This is fucking disturbing.
Huey laying down the truest statement you’ll ever see on television.
My Soul Sis @stay__melo tagged me in this earlier this afternoon. To say it rang in me like church bells during a hurricane is an understatement. We as musicians have knowledge to share with our world. We have creativity to help our evolution in ways the souls of our generations can understand. Our goal is to pass it on. If you’re tagged in this post it is because your music has impacted me In some way, shape, or form and I thank you for “passing it on”. I also want it to remind you, as it reminded me, “DONT DIE WITH YOUR MUSIC STILL INSIDE YOU”. #PASSITON #onelove #getmehsi #mehsimusic #hiphop #passion #art #graffiti #dj #producers #piano #drums #jazz #samples #beats #20i4 (at PASS IT ON! )

Today is the day that the universe chose me out of a million other sperm cells to come to this “reality”. I had no mind or body and beat the odds. now that i do and im self conscious and have knowledge and understanding of self I can go up against the 1 in a 7 billion odds.
