Google is bringing the funk with a doodle & digital turntable marking the birth of Hip Hop music

I said a hip hop, hippie to the hippie, the hip, hip a hop, and you don’t stop.

Those were the very first Hip Hop lyrics I remember hearing from my mom’s eight-track tape deck back in the late ’70s. It turns out Sugar Hill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight” came six years after Hip Hop music was first introduced.

Today marks the 44th anniversary of the birth of Hip Hop, and Google has created a Doodle to celebrate the music genre that launched a cultural revolution. The doodle doubles as an interactive turntable and includes a tutorial recorded by Hip Hop icon (and YO! MTV Raps host) Fab 5 Freddy.
