Hip Hop start in the South Bronx or West Bronx?
Hip Hop DJing had no name at the beginning, but the DJ element started
in the West Bronx, by a DJ ,who name was Kool DJ Herc. Hip Hop as a
Culture was started and named by Afrika Bambaataa in the South Bronx.
It is Afrika Bambaataa who pull the 4 elements together (DJing, B-Boys,
B-Girls, MCing (Rap),and Grafitti all together and gave The 5th Element
which was Knowledge,which later he added Knowledge,Culture and Overstanding
which holds all of it together.
Afrika Bambaataa started DJing after Kool DJ Herc?
Afrika Bambaataa started DJing at a very young age as well as giving
numerous parties in the Southeast Bronx. Afrika Started DJing in the
year 1970 playing with home turntables in a place called The Old Center
in Bronx River Houses. He also had played with his mentor Kool DJ Dee,
Tyrone and MC JoJo and Lovebug Starski, Disco King Mario, Tex DJ Hollywood
throughout the years way before their was a name called Hip Hop. He
also played on Pete DJ Jones System when he use to come and play in
the Bronx River section. Afrika Bambaataa, Disco King Mario, Kool Dj
Dee, Tyrone, Lovebug Starski, JoJo, Tex DJ Hollywood all came from The
Nortorius Black Spades Streetgang and it is a fact that Afrika Bambaataa
and Disco King Mario had a Lockdown on the whole Southeast Bronx, where
you had to get permission from them to play in any of the areas they
had fully controll of. If you was not down with Bams Zulu Nation or
their Family group Marios Chuck Chuck City Crew, then much problems
would come your way.
the word Hip Hop out before there was a Culture called Hip Hop?
is said that LoveBug Starski, Keith Cowboy and DJ Hollywood both was
using it in their raps when Disco Rap was the big thing of the time.
So Hip Hop the word has roots with the MCs (Master of Ceremonies) of
the Disco era, but it is a Fact that Afrika Bambaataa's Whole Zulu Nation
are the one who flip the name and made it a Culture. And all the other
DJs who came after Kool DJ Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash
fell into the Hip Hop Culture.
Grandmaster Flash from Bams Area?
who came some years after Bam was from another part of the SouthBronx
and he gave to Hip Hop Culture the quickmix DJ style as well as his
MCs gave more of the rhyming style of Hip Hop. Bam gave more of the
music of Hip Hop, a visionary to spread the music throughout the Tri
-State area and then the world and both Flash and Bam started adding
electronic instruments to their sets like beat boxes and synthesizers,
which even made the parties more funkier. The same can be said for another
great Zulu Nation DJ by the name of Grandmixer DST, later known as DXT.

and where was the first HIP HOP SHOW ON TV?
first hip hop show on television history was not in the USA but was
in fact in the country of France called Hip Hop and its host was a guy
name Sydney who also was the first Leader of The Universal Zulu Nation
of France, before Queen Candy took over and made an army of Zulus in
France. The first MTV Hip Hop show call Yo MTV Raps did not start in
USA but started in England first with Sophie Bramey who is know as Africa
Lakoum of The Universal Zulu Nation of France, which later on Fab Five
Freddy took over the spot in the USA and became the show of all the
world to see on MTV (YO MTV Raps). So it was Universal Zulu Nation members
who first brought Hip Hop to T.V.
