On the streets of the Bronx in the summer of 1973, DJ Herc took the percussion breaks from an obscure album and extended them by playing them back to back. The song he used: "Apache" is considered the national anthem of hip hop and is one of the most sampled tracks in the history of the genre used by artists such as Will Smith, Missy Elliott, Amy Winehouse, Nas, Kanye West and Jay-Z.
