Hip Hop is one of most popular music cultures on the planet. What began in the poor neighbourhoods of New York in the 1970’s has since become a global industry. Hip Hop culture is more than just a beat and and a rapper – it permeates dancing, art, fashion, language and much more.
It was on August 11 in 1973 that a DJ named Grandmaster Flash first used two turntables to create a continuous music loop – Hip Hop was born.
