Photographs, like music, are imprinted onto our collective consciousness. Both define our individual and cultural identities and help shape how we view the world as well as ourselves.
In the case of hip-hop, a medium that encompasses so many transformative moments from politics to race to style, both the visuals and the music become a part of us.
It’s not just that one powerful song that has a way of getting under your skin, it’s also the visuals that equally captivates, and stick with us for years to come.
It’s this union of hip-hop visuals and music that we honor in this book.
