There are so many never seen before pictures of artist such as Queen Latifa, MC Lyte, Busta, Lauren Hill....the list goes on and on. Even some of the artist were surprised when they saw some old school photos of themselves.
The love and respect that both Ernie and Kevin have for HipHop culture is felt on every page.
This would make a nice gift. Check it out.
