Introducing Hip Hop History

Since the first block party hosted by Kool Herc in 1973, hip hop has been a staple in not only the music industry, but also in pop culture.

From hip hop boycotting The Grammys to the mysterious and controversial death of Tupac to Kanye calling out George Bush on national television: there have been many moments where hip hop has stopped the world for a moment and had all eyes on them.

However, these aren’t the moments that I care about…. I care about the true history of the culture. I’m here to curate “Hip Hop History”: a new WIUX editorial where I’ll inform you of all of my favorite moments in hip hop history.

Keep your eye out for the first installment coming later this week!
