Today marks the 44th anniversary of DJ Kool Herc’s legendary instrumental break in 1973, the moment that is widely accepted as the birth of Hip Hop. Google is celebrating that historical even in today’s Google Doodle with an immersive game that teaches you how to DJ.
Led by Fab 5 Freddy, the brief tutorial gives you insights about New York Block Parties before putting you at the helm of the turntables. In the game, you control the records and fader, and unlock awards as you get creative by giving you brief facts about the history of Hip Hop.
The game allows you to choose from an arsenal of funk and hip hop records to spin, including Ohio Players, Grandmaster Flash, Zapp and more.
