Google Celebrates the 44th Anniversary of #HipHop @Google @FABNEWYORK @ceyadams #KoolHerc

On August 11, 1973, there was a party at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in The Bronx—and four decades later, we’re still talking about it. Today’s Google Doodle celebrates the 44th anniversary of that party, which is widely credited as the birth of the Hip Hop movement.

Several elements of hip hop were born – namely, emcee’ing and “breaks – and Google is commemorating that moment with a global interactive Doodle on their homepage.
