"The Originator" — DJ Kool Herc
The Jamaican-born, Bronx-established DJ Kool Herc is widely credited with blossoming this thing we now know as Hip-Hop. After blowing up blocks with his booming speakers in the South Bronx, Herc created a mythos straight from the impact of his neighborhood jamborees. As the culture moved on, it seemed to forget its roots as it became commercialized glam that we now see all over the world.
A biopic about the life and times of DJ Kool Herc could put things into perspective, while adhering to the tenants of Universal Zulu Nation. Focusing on the roots of the culture and telling Herc's story within those break beats would be a once-in-a-lifetime thank you to the person responsible for all the success many are enjoying now and hope to enjoy in the future.
