In life, it's important to show respect and pay homage to the people who paved the way; the people who did something that made your journey possible. DJ Kool Herc is credited as the man who basically started Hip Hop culture by being the 1st DJ to isolate the break beats on records and continuously loop them on 2 turntables. One thing that I learned from listening to this Combat Jack episode is that he is also credited with creating the terms "B-Boy and B-Girl."
One thing is for sure: DJ Kool Herc planted a seed that, over time, grew into a lifestyle and an industry that is ever-evolving. Salute.
