Team Behind Hip-Hop Google Doodle Explains How They Did It

If you haven’t checked out today’s Google Doodle make sure you do! The doodle flashes back to August 11, 1973, to the party at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx that started it all. Today’s Google Doodle celebrates the 44th anniversary that party, which most fans hip-hop culture credit as the birth the genre.

Google posted a blog dedicated to the making the doodle. Check out some the excerpts below which include interviews with three the Googlers behind the Doodle—Kevin Burke, Ryan Germick and Perla Campos as well as Fab 5 Freddy, former host “Yo! MTV Raps” and narrator the Doodle, and Cey Adams, visual artist and founding creative director Def Jam records, who designed the Doodle logo image on the homepage today.
