The 2023 Grammy Awards brought out plenty of hip-hop greats and stars of today for a tribute performance to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the ever-evolving genre.

The tribute, which was hosted by rap legend LL Cool J paid homage to the culture-defining genre that started in 1973. That year, Clive Campbell, aka DJ Kool Herc, and his sister Cindy threw a party in the recreation room at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx where hip-hop was born, per Uproxx. After this, hip-hop went global.
