Ironically, when we visited some colleges earlier this year for my daughter - one of the classes given at Univ. of VT was the Sociology and Origins of Hip-Hop. The professor teaching the class went into some detail about this subject and he explained how it did indeed originate in The Bronx!

It started in the Bronx- IDK why Brooklyn is trying to claim it now, but they should just give the BX credit because it's where it became popular (that's what we know for sure)
Brooklyn gave us Biggie, Jay Z, and Lil Kim, but I guess they want more to wear adding on "The birthplace of Hip Hop"- They should just sit back and let the BX hold its title.

Sorry dude but it started in the Bronx and then Run DMC (from Hollis, Queens) took it a step further and it blew up.

While it might be true that Brooklyn and Queens had DJ's setting up sound systems in the parks and block parties and playing the latest records for the people pre-1975, Hip Hop in the sense of taking the 'break section' of a funk, disco, rock or soul record and manually looping it continously between two identical records and having a Master of Ceremonies rap over it originated in the Bronx. It was influenced by artists such as James Brown, some of the 'jive' radio station hosts and the 'DJ Toasting' from Jamaica with artists such as U-Roy.

KRS-One says in the 'South Bronx' that the dreds in Brooklyn were crazy, you couldn't bring out your SET with no Hip Hop because the pistols would go....alluding to the fact that the reggae sets were dominate in BK as oppose to Uptown.

And if it was out in Queens before, why does Russel Simmons, Run DMC, LL Cool J, all those guys that came out of Queens and would've been exposed to this, why didn't they acknowledge it. I still say it came out of the Bronx. Those guys probably just played songs, maybe no scratching, looping break beats, nothing.

Herc and other DJs would tap into the power lines to connect their equipment and perform at venues such as public basketball courts and at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, Bronx, New York, a historic building "where hip hop was born". Their equipment was composed of numerous speakers, turntables, and one or more microphones.By using this technique DJs could create a variety of music

Thanks

I'm aware of beat breaks. However, some say that DJs in Manhattan were creating beats from Punk records in Manhattan.

Does that hold any truth?
