Google marks hip hop's 44th anniversary with a doodle that you can play on its homepage
Internet search engine giant Google marks hip hop music's anniversary with a doodle that you can play on its home page and be a jokey. Today's interactive doodle commemorates the 44th anniversary of the first DJ party. One may recall that DJ Kool Herc is credited for creating hip hop in 1973.

In the doodle, graffiti artist Cey Adams' work has been depicted which has interactive turntables that allow one to mix his or her own mix-ups from famous songs on Google's homepage.

Just click the play button on the "O" to reach a "record crate" for choosing samples of classic songs to customise the mix using slider controls.

According to Google, this time their doodle project has been a complex job since the animations were first of their kind.

"We've never done a doodle like this before, both because of the technical challenges and the many voices and collaborators we wanted to include," stated on the internet Perla Campos of Google company. The team that created the doodle had members that had worked with hip hop industry.

Hip hop is a music genre developed by inner-city African Americans in the 1970s which consists of a stylised rhythmic music incorporating rapping, a rhythmic and rhyming speech that is chanted.

However, hip hop's two elements such as rapping and graffiti writing or sketch noting have been adapted in education also to enhance musical and visual intelligence of students, including me.
