Whether you are a fan of hip hop or just curious about it, you will not have to look further after finding Eric Reese's The History of Hip Hop. This concise but in-depth book explores all the distinguishing traits of what is not only a genre of music but a lifestyle. Reese traces the history of hip hop from its beginnings in the 1970s and reveals how it changed in the next decades until it became a worldwide phenomenon. The author gives attention to the influence of hip hop at every level, including art and fashion. He also considers its originality in comparison with other genres.
Volume 2 of this series is a compendium of lists, establishing a canon of formative and important acts during the 1980s, and taking the reader through the history of the music during that decade, one milestone at a time.
