"What's the deal with becoming a hip-hop Grand Master?"


  

          


I always loved the idea of Hip-Hop grandmasters but I don't know much about it. I read an article like this:

https://ambrosiaforheads.com/2016/12/kool-herc-dj-scratch-video-grandmaster/

and I wonder, why isn't there more around the concept? Is it a real thing or is it just some informal stuff that Herc annoints people from time to time with? Who are the current grandmasters?

Man Hip-Hop could have something as big as the Rock & Roll hall of fame if the concept was taken seriously.

It was just some shit to throw in front of your name in the 70s

maybe the etymology of Grand Wizard Theodore is reclaiming power from the KKK

but I just Googled and Grand Master comes from the chess world
