Birth of Scratching Vinyl Records

Hip Hop has evolved to new heights in recent years. Before the hip-hop industry got almost proliferated with rappers, it was the DJs that held the original front position in the whole hip-hop music scene. DJs were and still are the force with which the hip hop fuels its powerhouse; the industry would not have reached to worth billions of dollars had it not been for the Disc jockeys!

DJs create the groundwork that fires up the audience’s excitement, that makes the rappers rhyme and that creates a memorable event for hip-hop lovers!

They have contributed so much so that now the techniques in it have become almost like a musical art form.
