Many critics have drawn parallels between the development of rap and reggae, a connection that is denied by Kool Herc. “Jamaican toasting?” said Herc. “Naw, naw. No connection there. I couldn’t play reggae in the Bronx. People wouldn’t accept it. The inspiration for rap is James Brown and the album Hustler’s Convention. Hip-hop and rap are creations by Foundational Black Americans

You’ve been inspiring during my youth . I use to receive the flyers y’all handed out ‘round da way’, that had a drawing of DJ Clark Kent ( not the producer ) Leave out of Harlem River State Park, and cross the street to the Riverside Park, where you, Kool Herc , and Clark Kent would rock da park, well into the dark .

@Terry Funck The Kingston-born Dodd used to play records to the customers in his parents' shop. During a spell in the American South he became familiar with the rhythm and blues music popular there at the time. In 1954, back in Jamaica, he set up the Downbeat Sound System, being the owner of an amplifier, a turntable, and some US records, which he would import from New Orleans and Miami. With the success of his sound system, and in a competitive environment, Dodd would make trips through the US looking for new tunes to attract the Jamaican public.[2] While he did, his mother Doris Darlington would run the sound system and play the tunes. Dodd opened five different sound systems, each playing every night. To run his sound systems, Dodd appointed people such as Lee "Scratch" Perry, who was Dodd's right-hand man during his early career, U-Roy and Prince Buster.[3]

Rap is music, Hip-Hop is a subculture. Rap started in the South, Hip-Hop started in New York. Rap is sometimes called Hip-Hop because it's the music of Hip-Hop. Both are EXCLUSIVELY Foundational Black American creations. 🇺🇸✊🏾🇺🇸✊🏽🇺🇸✊🏿

@GaFFLe The region has always had the largest black population in the United States, it's the home of Black American culture and first region where anyone is known to rap over music. Some early examples of people rapping in music are: 'The Dirty Dozens' by Speckled Red(1929), 'Here Comes the Judge' by Pigmeat Markham(1968), 'It's a Good Thing' by the Beale St. Sheiks(1927), 'Rap Dirty' by Blowfly(1975), 'I Am The Greatest' by Muhammad Ali(1964), and 'You Gotta Have a Beat' by Louis Jordan(1948).

Hip-Hop is a subculture not a genre of music, there was NEVER any music created in the Bronx. Many books, articles and documentaries contain false and misleading information. The people who've spread the most misinformation and caused confusion in the process are from West Indian backgrounds; first in the early 1980s it was Afrika Bambaataa and the Universal Zulu Nation, then KRS-One and most recently Busta Rhymes. In the early 80s white corporations marketed Rap and Hip-Hop together creating the false impression that they're one and the same and have the same history.

Kool Herc was only 12-years-old when he migrated to the United States so it's highly unlikely he brought the knowledge of Sound System culture with him from Jamaica. There was already a Sound System culture going on among Foundational Black Americans in New York. Sound Systems have nothing to do with Rap anyway, they're a part of the Hip-Hop subculture.

@xavier marley In the late 1950s deejay toasting was developed by Count Matchuki.[2] He conceived the idea from listening to disc jockeys on American radio stations. He would do African American jive over the music while selecting and playing R&B music. LEARN SO HISTORY BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTH

No need to mention Jamaica at all when rap is so deeply embedded in African American music and culture in general dating back to slavery. Especially once you figure out Herc said Jamaican toasting, soundsytems, and Reggae had nothing to do with the formation of Hip Hop, and even more so once you figure out Jamaicans got toasting from African Americans in the first place.

This was a good interview but it needs to be said Coke LA Rock was one of the first mcs but people need to understand that their are different areas of the Bronx Kool Herc and Coke LA Rock was mostly on the westside of the Bronx performing. You also had Hip-Hop going on at the eastside of the Bronx like the Soundview Bronx River Bronxdale areas which Disco King Mario and the Chuck Chuck City Crew Dj Kool Dee MC Feva Dee and the Puma City Crew also Mario also had Dj Jazzy Jay MC Sundance Master Ice if I'm not mistaken Master Bee lil Starski who all left Mario to start performing with Africa Bambaata to create the Zulu Nation. All im saying I don't know who was the first but you had different areas of the Bronx performing this music we call Hip- Hop.

@America's Maker Name me one person rapping before Coke La Rock? DjCool Herc hosted party’s where essentially the first “HipHop” beat was put together and Coke had the genius idea to go up to the mike and start M.C’ing even if it is basic rhyming it birthed so many people putting there own spin to it like fast paced rapping, rapping with a triplet flow, multi syllable rhyming, conscious rhyming, sadly mumble rap and so much more! And don’t forget it’s not just us African Americans it was the Spanish brothers to Mexicans included!
