The Big Book of Hip Hop by George DuBose
George DuBose began his work with NYC’s Hip Hop artists at the very beginning. When he heard the first Hip Hop hits, he thought it was part of New Wave music. It was a wave alright, a tidal wave that swept the country. This book traces his work with Afrika Bambaataa, Biz Markie, Kane, G. Rap, Roxanne Shanté, MC Shan, Masta Ace, Man Parrish, The Genius aka GZA, Craig G, Marley Marl, Grand Daddy IU, King Sun, MC Jay and Thomas Ontime of 2 Deep, Run-DMC, The New York City Breakers, XCLAN, Mobb Deep, Rammellzee, Shelley Thunder, Scoob and Scrap, Double J, Bootsy Collins and The Notorious B.I.G. In all, DuBose has created more that 300 album images and designs and over 50 of his projects have achieved gold status. Bonafide magazine (UK) called DuBose “the godfather of Hip Hop photography”.
