Jamaican immigrant DJ Kool Herc also played a key role in developing hip hop music.At 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, Herc mixed samples of existing records and deejayed percussion "breaks", mixing this music with his own Jamaican-style "toasting" (a style of chanting and boastful talking over a microphone) to rev up the crowd and dancers.In the 2000s, with the rise of new media platforms and Web 2.0, fans discovered and downloaded or streamed hip hop music through social networking sites (SNS) beginning with Myspace, as well as from websites like You Tube, Worldstarhiphop, Sound Cloud, and Spotify.in 1978 while teasing a friend who had just joined the US Army by scat singing the made-up words "hip/hop/hip/hop" in a way that mimicked the rhythmic cadence of marching soldiers.It is also argued as to whether hip hop started in the South or West Bronx.hip hop is characterized by nine elements, however only four elements are considered most necessary to understand hip-hop musically.Afrika Bambaataa of the hip hop collective Zulu Nation outlined the pillars of hip hop culture, coining the terms: "rapping" (also called MCing or emceeing), a rhythmic vocal rhyming style (orality); DJing (and turntablism), which is making music with record players and DJ mixers (aural/sound and music creation); b-boying/b-girling/breakdancing (movement/dance); and graffiti art.
Sampling older culture and reusing it in a new context or a new format is called "flipping" in hip hop culture.
Kool Herc is credited as the "father" of hip hop for developing the key DJ techniques that, along with rapping, founded the hip hop music style by creating rhythmic beats by looping "breaks" (small portions of songs emphasizing a percussive pattern) on two turntables.
This was later accompanied by "rapping" or "MCing" and beatboxing.
The "six elements of the hip hop movement" are: Consciousness awareness, civil rights awareness, activism awareness, justice, political awareness, and community awareness in music.
Ronald Savage is known as the Son of The Hip Hop Movement.
