We celebrate the #BirthOfHipHop every day, but if you haven't had a chance to yet, check out today's #GoogleDoodle hosted by the legendary @fabnewyork for a special 44th birthday gift. 🎂

"Hip-hop is a genre for everybody—music is international—so your bloodline shouldn't make a difference." RIP @mr.mesohorny aka #FreshKidIce.

A year ago, the Canadian hip-hop community lost an amazing talent and a cherished friend to many. #KingReign, today we celebrate you. #RIPKingReign 👑



“I'm always laughing and you'd think I'd never gone through anything, but I'm always going through something - but you find a way to laugh at it, you find a way to change your mood and you'd be surprised that situation you thought was totally unfixable finds a way to fix itself if you just stay up, y'know, if you dig your head into the ground and go to sleep for 30 days.”

Our hearts are heavy. #RIPProdigy


"My ultimate goal was to share my life story with my fans and to share with the rest of the world that hopefully they can get the help, or help some kid that’s in trouble like I used to be. I was a fucked up individual. I was a fucked up person. That was the whole reason I wrote that book. I went through a major transformation in my life and people needed to see that and know that." 👑

"When I do shows now, the young kids go, ‘Man, D.M.C., you’re 50 years old and youngun’s... my peers don’t put it down like you.’ Because I’m 12 years old in my room still. I don’t base myself on what’s on the radio. I base my stuff on what’s on those Cold Crush tape." - Happy Birthday @KingDMC! | #HipHopEvolution

"You know something? I don’t know who came up with the name #NWA Because in the beginning, we wouldn’t tell people what it meant. You know, because it’s always, you know, I don’t like to talk like this, but all these white people ask, what do it mean? We just like, you don’t want to know (laughs). We would… I don’t know if we was embarrassed or just, you know, just didn’t want to say words like that back then. So that’s why when we did the second album, we put it backwards. You know, I remember sitting there, we was on the bus, and I wrote it backwards, and we put it up to the mirror, and it said Niggas For Life. Hey, that works. Oh, okay. That’s how the writing of it came up." - @DJYellaofNWA | #HipHopEvolution

"All I did with #Chinx was me just helping him out because I wanted to see my brother become as big as he can. I just feel like at his peak, this happened to him. That's what I'm most hurt about. I want him to see how much people love him." - @FrenchMontana | #RIPChinx

"The Geto Boys are icons. I mean anybody that listened to any kind of street hip hop, you had Geto Boys in your deck, period. Like I say man, on top of them representing the South, they were dope as fuck, you know what I mean? I mean they had a sound that didn’t sound like anybody else. I mean like there is no other Scarface (@BrotherMob). Nobody could touch Scarface. Nothing, he’s irreplaceable. Period. You know, with the combination of him, Willie D, and, you know, #BushwickBill right there, it was a beautiful thing, you know?" @DJMichaelWatts

"Sha-Rock is a very good friend of mine. She was the first female hip-hop rapper to get on vinyl, but we were the first female hip-hop group. I think that because a lot of those artists that worked in The Bronx in New York were very territorial. They had a lot going on in their communities, but outside of their tri-borough area nobody knew who they were! I’d never heard of them in South Carolina. It’s a bittersweet kind of thing, because you want to acknowledge everyone that contributed to this thing called hip-hop." - @RealAngieStone

"When I make my music, I don’t think it can even be identified as a Toronto sound unless you live in Toronto. If you’re in Toronto, there are vibes that are going to resonate with you where you’re like “Oh yeah, that feels like home” because you know home. But if you’re outside of the city, you may not realize it’s a very Toronto-inspired piece of music that you’re listening to." - Happy Birthday to the OG @KardinalO!

"But I think, you know, the thing about the Big Pimpin’ record was about where #JayZ was, in culture at the time. Specifically in hip-hop culture. You know, this was right after the Hard Knock Life, which had become a very big crossover record, H To The Izzo, all these big records, for him. And at the time, he could’ve done any record basically with anybody, but he was a fan. You know, I know that @DJClarkKent was very influential in introducing him to #UGK, and for the first time he heard it, he had been big fans of ours. And we were mutual fans of his or whatever. And, but for him to reach out to us to do a record at that time in his career, to basically lend us his spotlight, was a very big statement in hip-hop." - #BunB | #HipHopEvolution

"I think if you had to kind of look at how #MarleyMarl samples and how #DeLaSoul or #PrincePaul samples, I think one of the things you have to look at is the difference in era. Marley wasn’t really grabbing loops and full samples and putting them together. @DJPrincePaul had 12 different samples on one record, that kind of made something. It was almost like, you know, if Marley had a great dish, and De La had a great stew, that it was a lot more ingredients that made up what the total thing was." - @DJJazzyJeff | #HipHopEvolution
