Long-awaited by all music fans,
The only book that covers major albums from all eras of hip-hop in one book!
From 1979 Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" or Afrika Bambater's "Death Mix" ──
The birth of hip-hop, the constant birth of street music from the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Long Island, and the rise of Tommy Boy, Def Jam, and Cold Chillin to the emergence of the Hip-Hop Nation. From conscious to gangsta. From hardcore to G-funk. While the South/Midwest was on the rise, New York's thug rap was also on fire. On the other hand, while pop music established its position, the indie scene rose up, and while Wessai's funk came into the spotlight, neo-school emerged.
In this one volume, you can learn about the major works of the ever-changing and expanding US hip-hop of all eras!
The author is Akira Obuchi, former editor-in-chief of “BMR”!
The long-awaited “Hip-Hop Definitive” by all music fans is finally published!
