Brother INFO, do you have any insight that grand wizard theodore used to out duel flash?
lol - that's how he got the name.......'this kid is a wizard'. Because he 'accidentally' invented scratching he says when he was home one day blasting music and his mother was banging on his door to turn down the music and his hand was on one of the records playing and he jumped when he heard his moms and the record went back and forth and he liked what he heard. When he first did it while practicing with his older brother and flash they called him a WIZARD! Nobody had ever heard that sound before. After that it was on............
Interesting that in all the so called hip hop history, I never hear GW Theodore even brought up.
How does Kool Herc fit in all of this?
My man Herc is the one credited for 'transforming' dance battles into Hip Hop by way of his technique of using what is known as Break Beats. In the beginning (even in movies like wild style and beat streat - even the name BEAT street tells you what it was all about) BREAK- dancers would do their thing to mainly disco tracks until herc came up with the looping of BREAK beats. That's why in early HIP HOP the MC's were always making Rhymes up about how good their Dj was. Even Flash was a B-Boy and breaker back in the days....
