A little bit of hip hop history which some of you might know, Hip Hop  has a strong Jamaican roots, it was originally started by Jamaican born DJ Kool Herc in the early 1970 and it is widely accepted as the origin of the culture where Herc would mix samples of existing records with his own shouts to the crowd and dancers. Kool Herc is credited as the "father" of the music form and introduced New York to the the concept of toasting an art form of the 60s and 70s done by reggae pioneers such as U-Roy or King Stitt who would toast or "rap" to the version side of popular records on the sound systems of the time in Jamaica.
