Synopsis

The Story of Hip-hop by Matt Anniss

From hip-hop's block party roots to today's mega-stars of the industry The Story of Hip-Hop takes a detailed look at how cretive musicians ripped up existing music and turned it into something new. Emerging rappers realised that this music was the perfect backing to enhance their lyrics and so hip-hop was born. Tracing hip-hop through to the present day this book will tell you how it has influenced thousands of artists and crossed over many musical genres to become a global urban sound. The Story of Hip-Hop is part of the series Pop Histories which takes a similarly detailed look at other popular musical genres.
