HIP HOP WORLD
DJ Kool Herc (born Clive Campbell), aka the Founding Father of Hip Hop, legendary DJ. He originated Hip-Hop music in The Bronx. He isolated the instrumental portion of hard funk records, emphasizing the drum beat - the "break”, and switched between breaks. Via 2 turntables, he used 2 copies of a record to elongate the break; this formed the basis of Hip-Hop music. His call-outs to dancers helped lead to the rhymed spoken words known as rapping. He also called his dancers "break-boys" aka b-boys.
