    Hey All,

    I was wondering if anyone knows how hip hop started? I was hearing some dude on the radio saying some nonsense that it started as dance hall music in Jamaica and when some DJ moved to New York he wanted to have parties like the ones he went to in Jamaica. So he told some dude to rap over his beat and that was it. I don't believe that.

    Has anyone else heard about this?

    im not sure bout that dancehall music part but it started in the parks in the bronx. Rap was reformed from RnB, and funk. The was somebody from jamaica i think that is kool herk. If it was him on the radio and he said that then its true
