Two years ago I re-published the first book on hip hop on Smashwords. Since a dogeared original copy of Hip Hop sells for around $100 (when you can find it) being able to download this ebook version (in virtually any format for any viewing device) for $4.99 was a boon to anyone interested in researching the origins of the dominant cultural movement of our time.
But now I’ve packaged the original text along with just about everything I ever wrote on the subject into one volume. The result is a paperback titled Hip Hop: The Complete Archives, and it’s available for under $12. The book is packed with pictures, including a few never-before-seen exclusives.
