By now, hip-hop's origin story is fairly well known: At a Bronx house party in 1973, Clive Campbell—soon to become DJ Kool Herc—essentially created the genre after playing breaks from various tunes back to back on two turntables. But the man who created it has stayed out of the spotlight in recent years. That'll change this summer, as Herc has many appearances planned to coincide with hip-hop's ruby anniversary.
