Every now and then music has its defining moments that create true synergy between cultures. Hip-Hop has been influenced from its inception by Caribbean culture via Clive Campbell, better known by his B-Boy moniker “DJ Kool Herc”. Herc, a Jamaican-American DJ is touted as the Father of Hip-Hop for originating the genre in the early 1970s in The Bronx, NY. His influences can still be heard in the break beats that define Hip-Hop.
One who has been definitely influenced is DJ Khaled. Khaled, who came up as a DJ in Miami, honed his skills on WEDR, 99JAMZ cohosting with Uncle Luke and as a DJ for the Bronx based “Terror Squad”. This week Khaled dropped his video for “Nas Album Done” (feat. Nas). The banger is off Khaled’s album “Major Key” that was released earlier this summer. We are going to let the influences in this one speak for themselves…!
