  • Google has created a limited edition Pixel Fold that celebrates the 50th anniversary of hip-hop.

  • This limited edition version of the Pixel Fold is not available for purchase.

Hip hop arrived on the scene in 1973 with DJ Kool Herc credited as the first to spin the same record on twin turntables, toggling between them to isolate and extend percussion breaks. It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 50 years since the genre’s birth. Google is celebrating this anniversary by releasing a special version of its recently launched Pixel Fold.

Google has started to hand out a special “Hip Hop 50” version of the Pixel Fold to people through its #GiftFromGoogle program. With 400 made in total, the handset is a limited edition device that, unfortunately, is not available for purchase.
