This Day in Rap and Hip-Hop History

By Chuck D
Authors:
Chuck D
**FREE SAMPLER**In the more than 40 years since the days of DJ Kool Herc and "Rapper's Delight," hip-hop and rap have become a billion-pound worldwide cultural phenomenon that reaches well beyond music, into fashion, movies, art and politics. Yet there is no definitive history of the genre - until now.Get a first look at this massive and comprehensive compendium before it officially publishes in October. Including details of the most iconic moments and influential songs in the genre's recorded history, from Kurtis Blow's "Christmas Rappin'" to The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill to Kendrick Lamar's verse on "Control," the book will also include key events in hip-hop history, from Grandmaster Flash's first scratch through to Tupac's holographic appearance at Coachella.Throughout the book, Chuck offers an insider's perspective on the chart toppers, artists and key moments. Illustrating the pages are more than 150 portraits from mADurgency, an artist collective specialising in art and design for the hip-hop community.
