So how did DJ Kool Herc get into DJing? Well, we have his sister to thank for that. In attempt to make money for back-to-school clothes, she decided to throw a party. She asked her brother (DJ Kool Herc) to DJ. This would be his first DJ gig, and would eventually be recognized as the birth place of the Hip-Hop culture.
