Review

"Born in the Bronx is a fascinating chronicle of the early days when the beats were more important than the bling." -- Nov 2007 FILTER MAGAZINE

"Born in the Bronx takes it back to 1977, when NYC shutterbug Joe Conzo began snapping urgent, candid pictures of local shows, where a revolutionary new sound could be heard." -- Nov 2007 **ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

"tells the story of hip-hop's pre-80s "baby steps" through the work of photographer Joe Conzo and party flyer-designer Buddy Esquire...edited, curiously, by punk historian Johan Kugelberg..." -- XLR8R Sept 2007

"And before you put away your cardboard breakdancing mat, you might want to pick up Born in the Bronx: A Visual Record of the Early Days of Hip-Hop, a new book edited by Johan Kugelberg and featuring photos by hip-hop chronicler Joe Conzo, as well as a wealth of info from the era, from flyers by Buddy Esquire to essays from folks who were there." -- Nov 07 *E!

The best part of this book is the way is was edited. The flyers are cool and the text is ok. The photos are so-so--more valued because they are a record of--not a collection of great images. If you're a fan of hip-hop--this is it.

This book is very similar in content as " Yes Yes Y'all" especially the pictures within the book. The next best thing to time travel to the Boogie Down Bronx to see hip hop's genesis.

This is where it all begun. Thirty years ago, the birth of hip hop occurred, spread at house parties and dancehalls throughout the Bronx. "Born in the Bronx" is primarily a catalog of party flies designed by Buddy Esquire, a renowned graphic artist during the late 1970's and early 1980's. " Born in the Bronx" also displays photos from the parties that these fliers advertised, many of theme were parties where the Cold Crush Four and the Furious Five. For those who appreciate hip hop history, it's a must have.
