DJ ON NPR FOR HIP-HOP 50 CONVERSATION (Interview)
"On Aug. 11, 1973, a party in the Bronx changed the direction of music history.
That night, DJ Kool Herc showed off a new way to play records on two turntables — alternating between them to maintain a breakbeat. Add an emcee to rap over the beat, and you’ve got the foundations of hip-hop. Bring in dancers and artists, and you’ve got a cultural movement.
In this episode, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of hip-hop and explore how Nashville is marking the occasion.
Dan Charnas, writer and journalist, author of Dilla Time
