“In the beginning, there was a beat . . .” So begins What Is Hip-Hop?—a playful guided tour of one of the most revolutionary pop culture movements of the twentieth century. Beginning with block parties in the Bronx, What Is Hip-Hop? brings the reader up to the present day, with rhyming verses and engaging 3-D clay illustrations. It’s a fun, accessible, and informative read for B-boys and B-girls of all ages.

In the follow-up to their acclaimed and beloved hit What Is Punk? author Eric Morse and artist Anny Yi reunite to celebrate the music that changed their lives and the voices that achieved iconic status along the way. See Run-DMC, LL Cool J, Beastie Boys, Salt-N-Pepa, Biggie and Tupac, Eminem, even Nicki Minaj and Kendrick Lamar, as you’ve never seen them!
