The potent combination of Ed Piskor's deft cartooning skills and deep obsession for endlessly rich true-life subject matter has rocketed Hip Hop Family Tree off the shelves and onto the New York Times best-seller and 2014 Eisner Award nomination lists. (The fresh packaging and all-around general coolness don’t hurt either.) Get ready for another dose of knowledge this summer, when Vol. 2: 1981-1983 drops.
Episodes in our downloadable preview: beatboxing pioneer Doug E. Fresh is introduced; the story of Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde’s hit “Genius Rap”; a famous pro baseball star threatens Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five backstage; the origin of the hip hop staple “Apache” riff; how party records inspired Too Short; the roots of the Rick Rubin/Beastie Boys connection; another popular riff makes a hit for T Ski Valley; Ice-T makes a smashing debut; “Beyond Words,” the seminal graffiti-based art show curated by Fab Five Freddy; and punk impresario Malcolm McLaren’s introduction to hip hop.
Don’t sleep; reserve your copy today!
