back in the 1990's, when tv was still black and white, and they had to spin vinyl to make hip hop
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (Map),
I'm pretty sure that's how hip hop started, in nyc. turntables and vinyl records instead of instruments. and i think Rap is spoken word poetry originating from slaves.
it's interesting to watch the dj spin, they said they invited any dj's in the audience to a battle in the parking lot after the show. lol
