In the early 90s, the hip-hop movement took off completely. His state of mind is emulated all over the world and the music scene is teeming with hundreds of bands, each as talented as the next. This book is also that of an era with emerging groups like De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Salt’n’Pepa, confirmed hopes like NWA, Eric B. and Rakim, EPMD, Big Daddy Kane, and precursors like Grandmaster Flash, Kool Herc, RUN DMC, Beastie Boys, LL Cool J… The book draws the portraits of these artists, the whole beautifully illustrated by photographs of Janette Beckman.
