DJ Kool Herc is credited with creating hip-hop in 1973, after playing "breaks" in songs at a party in NY.

During his set, Kool Herc played instrumental sections, known as "breaks", for longer to give the crowd longer to dance.

The new doodle was designed by legendary graffiti artist and founding creative director of Def Jam records Cey Adams.

"We anchored the Doodle to the birth of Hip-hop, and wanted to celebrate the people who pioneered the movement", said Perla Campos, one of the people behind Friday's doodle.

"Hip Hop has done exactly what its founders set out to do, whether wittingly or unwittingly".

"Hip Hop was disruptive". The Bronx DJ's and MC's rose to the task and the city loved them for it.

"The Show" - While "The Show" doesn't get as deep into the history of hip-hop as "Hip-Hop Evolution", it presents a slice of time that cemented the music in the mainstream of American culture, the mid-1990s. It placed an accessible culture, relatable to any marginalized group in the world, at the forefront of music. And going back to when I first got on the internet, I was looking for people who were of a like mind who were part of the culture.
