Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Hip-Hoooooooooooop, Happy Birthday to youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!
Back on this day, 1973, Hip-Hop was born. From a back to school party spawned the most influential cultural movement and racial equality movement of all time. It was on this day at 1520 Sedgwick Ave in that Hip Hop was officially on the map. Kool Herc is still living breathing Hip Hop everywhere he goes and I can’t do anything but be thankful. You can check out some more of Kool Herc’s vision over at his clothing store today (sale $19.73 price today!) at his Sedgwick & Cedar website. Pound out a beat on the table and kick some bars in honor of the reason nappyafro.com is around.
