Google is mixing it up on their homepage today to celebrate the 44th anniversary of the birth of hip-hop. Their interactive Doodle, which is narrated by hip-hop pioneer Fab 5 Freddy, tells the story behind the birth of a cultural movement.

According to Google, hip-hop was born at a party in the Bronx in 1973 when DJ Kool Herc decides to change things up during his set. “Instead of playing the songs in full, he played only their instrumental sections, or ‘breaks’ – sections where he noticed the crowd went wild. During these ‘breaks’ his friend Coke La Rock hyped up the crowd with a microphone. And with that, Hip Hop was born.” The interactive Doodle details the history of a movement and illustrates its impact on music, dance, art, fashion and more. Users can also put their own spin on iconic songs using the Doodle’s interactive turntables.

Legendary music executive Lyor Cohen explained in the Doodle blog just how significant the movement was. He said that it was not only accessible, but also a form of rebellion that went on to become a disruptive force in the industry. “The messages of resilience unified a community of people and were the backdrop of hip hop’s beginnings,” he wrote. Freddy also shared his perspective on how far the movement has come, according to Entertainment Weekly:

“I first went online in 1994 — I even remember doing a segment on Yo! MTV Raps about email. And going back to when I first got on the internet, I was looking for people who were of a like mind who were part of the culture. And now, to see hip-hop on one of the biggest digital platforms out there, in a way that acknowledges and recognizes what this culture is, and what it continues to be. It’s pretty amazing.”
