August 11 is officially recognized as “Hip Hop Celebration Day.” By unanimous consent, the U.S. Senate passed Senate Resolution 331, designating the date hip hop was born at the DJ Kool Herc-hosted back-to-school party in the Bronx as a national holiday. August is now “Hip Hop Recognition Month” and November is “Hip Hop History Month,” according to the Senate Periodical Press Gallery.
