You can now become a DJ sitting comfortably from home with just one click during this extended lockout. Today's Google Doodle game offers another addictive and musical activity that is sure to get you typing a foot or two.
"Hip Hop" is an interactive 2017 doodle that celebrates the birth of hip hop music and, as part of the Google series, is making a comeback to quarantine and social distance users in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic to chat . When a user’s mouse hovers over the doodle on the Google homepage, they’ll see the message “Stay home and play with popular previous Google doodles”.
Today's Google Doodle includes a custom logo graphic by famous graffiti artist Cey Adams, interactive turntables that let users mix samples from legendary tracks, and a helping of hip hop history – with a focus on the founding pioneers. The whole experience is told by hip hop icon Fab 5 Freddy, the former presenter of "Yo! MTV Raps".
The records include Apache from the Incredible Bongo Band, Billy Squire and Kids from Prince Paul. 10 goals must be unlocked within the game, each containing information about a different hip hop legend. To play the game, users should select two records from the collection and place them on the turntable. You can then use the cursor to scratch the records.
Hip Hop was born on August 11, 1973 when an 18-year-old Jamaican-American DJ named Kool Herc did a back-to-school jam at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx, New York.
"During his set, he decided to do something different. Instead of playing the songs in full, he only played their instrumental sections, or" breaks "sections, in which he noticed that the crowd was going wild. During this & # 39; Breaks & # 39; his friend Coke La Rock cheered the crowd up with a microphone, and hip hop was born, "says Google.
In Google Doodle's description, YouTube's global music director Lyor Cohen (and former head of Def Jam Records) is quoted as saying, "Hip hop did exactly what its founders were up to, whether funny or unwitting an accessible culture in relation to every marginalized group in the world who is at the forefront of music.
