“Well-written and engaging…The pictures alone are worth the price of entry for this weighty coffee table book [that’s] the perfect Christmas gift for any hip-hop loving friends or family. If you love hip-hop, you’ll love this–whatever era you come from!”
“A delightful and comprehensive study of hip-hop [and] a far-reaching analysis of the music and culture. A visual treasure trove…this volume contains over 1,000 photographs, many printed here for the first time. A historical feast, it will be treasured by longtime fans and consulted by interested newcomers.”

“Unlike many hip hop books that embrace the patchwork aesthetic of fanzines, this volume treats the genre with a certain graphic elegance and scholarly heft. Text blocks range from historic timelines to in-depth pieces on major stars―Tupac Shakur, N.W.A., Jay-Z, Eminem, Nicki Minaj―while the images alternate between somber portraits, landmark album covers, and edgy memorabilia. At 450 pages, this is the reference book on the genre.”

For those of us that really did grow up during the birth of rap & hiphop - HIP HOP RAISED US! This book is like a huge family reunion for the era of rap & hip hop. The PICTURES and words will take you back to when life was a simpler time (for most). They seem to have covered everything and I know they didn't but it damn sure looks like it!
I had a friend visiting over the weekend and the next thing I knew page after page she was laughing recounting her memories out loud. Like I said, this book takes you back!
