International Hip Hop Music Day is celebrated on August 11th every year. It is a day to celebrate the diversity of hip-hop music and its ability to connect with people from all walks of life.

Although Hip-hop Day is only officially recognized in the US, it is embraced by fans around the world.

According to the history of Hip hop music, the day was started in 1973, when Clive Campbell, known as DJ Kool Herc also referred to as the father of hip-hop, organized a back-to-school jam in the Bronx with his sister Cindy.

The two had no idea what the event would lay for a global celebration that pays tribute to the pioneers, visionaries, and every rhythm, lyric, and dance move that helped in shaping hip-hop.

Hip-hop music has since been used by various artists to express a wide range of emotions and experiences, including those of persons with disabilities – One way that hip-hop music can relate to disability is through its message of empowerment.

Hip-hop music often celebrates the strength and resilience of people who have faced adversity. For example, the rapper Fetty Wap, born with glaucoma and lost his left eye as a child, hails hip hop music for helping him overcome his disability and achieve success.

Another way that hip-hop music can relate to disability is through its use of storytelling. Hip-hop music often tells stories about the lived experiences of persons with disabilities.

This can help to raise awareness of the challenges that people with disabilities face and to challenge negative stereotypes about disability. For example, the rapper Leroy Moore, paralyzed from the waist down, uses his music to tell stories about his experiences with a disability.

These artists are using their platforms to share their stories and inspire others. They are showing the world that people with disabilities can be successful in any field, including hip-hop music.
