    "Knowledge Is Power"

    The 411 on Hip Hop by some of our Legends/Pioneers Krs-One, Kool Herc, Africa Bambaataa and more

    HIP HOP FIRST EMERGED IN THE SOUTH BRONX IN THE EARLY 1970S. 1520 SEDGWICK AVENUE HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS THE STARTING POINT FOR HIP-HOP AND RAP MUSIC WORLDWIDE. IT'S WHERE DJ KOOL HERC PRESIDED OVER PARTIES IN THE BASEMENT COMMUNITY ROOM. BEGINNING WITH THE ADVENT OF BEAT MATCH DJING, IN WHICH BRONX DJS INCLUDING GRANDMASTER FLASH, AFRIKA BAMBAATAA AND DJ KOOL HERC EXTENDED THE BREAKS OF FUNK RECORDS, A MAJOR NEW MUSICAL GENRE EMERGED THAT SOUGHT TO ISOLATE THE PERCUSSION BREAKS OF HIT FUNK, DISCO AND SOUL SONGS.
    AS HIP HOP'S POPULARITY GREW, PERFORMERS BEGAN SPEAKING ("RAPPING") IN SYNC WITH THE BEATS, AND BECAME KNOWN AS MCS OR EMCEES. THE HERCULORDS, MADE UP OF HERC, COKE LA ROCK, AND CLARK KENT, WERE THE EARLIEST TO GAIN MAJOR FAME. THE BRONX IS REFERRED TO IN HIP-HOP SLANG AS "THE BOOGIE DOWN BRONX", OR JUST "THE BOOGIE DOWN".
    HIP-HOP WAS BORN IN THE WEST BRONX. NOT THE SOUTH BRONX, NOT HARLEM AND MOST DEFINITELY NOT QUEENS. JUST ASK ANYBODY AT 1520 SEDGWICK AVENUE — AN OTHERWISE UNREMARKABLE HIGH-RISE JUST NORTH OF THE CROSS BRONX AND HARD ALONG THE MAJOR DEEGAN.
    THIS IS WHERE IT CAME FROM, SAID CLIVE CAMPBELL (KOOL HERC), POINTING TO THE BUILDINGS FIRST-FLOOR COMMUNITY ROOM. THIS IS IT. THE CULTURE STARTED HERE AND WENT AROUND THE WORLD. BUT THIS IS WHERE IT CAME FROM. NOT ANYPLACE ELSE...
