Grand Wizard Theodore (DJ Mean Gene's brother) is the creator of the scratch and needle drop. As the legend goes Theo was at home practicing on his turntables, and created these moves purely by accident. His mom came into his room asking him to turn down the music, and he held the record with his hand. He moved it back and forth and the rest is HipHop history.

In the 50's graffiti was used by gangs to denote territory.
