A generation voicing Stories, hopes, and fears founds a hip-hop nation. Say holla if you hear.       

The roots of rap and the history of hip-hop have origins that precede DJ Kool Herc and Grandmaster Flash. Kids will learn about how this genre evolved from folktales, spiritual and poetry, to the showmanship of James Brown, to the culture of graffiti and breakdancing that developed around the art form and gave birth to the musical artists we know today.       

With lyrical rhythms by award-winning author and poet Carole Boston Weatherford, Vibrant illustrations by Frank Morrison, and forward but claimed musician Swizz Beatz, this book beautifully illustrates that hip-hop is the language spoken the whole world round.
