Chuck D Is Releasing A Book On Hip-Hop History

On October 10, Chuck D Presents This Day In Hip-Hop History will be available at all major retailers and Amazon. The book is a chronology of hip-hop’s history beginning with a 1973 house party where Kool DJ Herc debuted the break on his turntables. The anthology gives the history of the art form from those early days with Herc up until the present. Portraits created by Shepard Fairey of more than 100 major figures in hip-hop brings the history off the page and makes each entry flow. LL Cool J says,

“Reading this book is like reliving my life all over again”

Kendrick Lamar gave his recommendation:

“If you want to understand our culture. To learn knowledge itself. Truth about the art form of poetry in motion. The struggle of our community through rhyme and rhythm. This is the book that inspired me long before I found my place in hip-hop, The power of self-expression. Unapologetically. Taught by the teacher himself. Chuck D!!!.”

The Public Enemy frontman just saw the release of the self-titled debut from his other group Prophets Of Rage.
