{Free Epub} ⚡ Hip Hop Family Tree, Vol. 2 Ý eBook or E-pub free

Still excellent but not as poignant as the first Piskor spends a lot of time talking about the making of the film Wild Style and while I recognize its importance, I think he spent too much time on it I m also not entirely sure that the degree to which he incorporates the graffiti movement isn t a distraction from his ultimate purpose I understand the two are perhaps inextricably linked, but every time he goes off on the topic I find my mind wandering until he gets back to hip hop I love how he includes little Easter eggs here and there, like a one panel reference to a major rap artist as a child, listening to the artist Piskor is discussing at the moment in the narrative It does cause things to jump around a bitthan I d like, but the material is so interesting, I don t really mind I love the pinups at the end of each volume, too I enjoyed the series so much I had to buy my own copy of the box set with the first two. Even if Ed Piskor s continuing history of hip hop wasn t highly entertaining and informative , who could resist a Treasury Edition sized cover of Afrika Bambaataa in a Wally Woodesque spaceship With all the irreverent enthusiasm of his Hip Hop Family Tree Vol 1, Pisker brings his history up to around 1983 That means the rise of Run DMC is covered, the origins of The Beastie Boys, the beginning of beat boxing, the beginning of Def Jam Records Plus, pinups by Katie Skelly, Matt Bors andPiskor crams a lot into 96 pages Highly recommended if you re interested in the complex and all too human fits and starts of a revolutionary art form. Every bit as fascinating and entertaining as Volume 1 Hip Hop is one of the many musical genres I know very little about Nonetheless, I found this to be an engrossing read I could only wish for an accompanying soundtrack I do recognize names from my youth, and it s nice to have faces and a context for them at last I ll definitely keep up with future volumes in this series, as well as Piskor s work in general. Important musical history of genre that was thought to only be a fad This will have you searching YouTube for old school videos for all the songs that are highlighted. An entertaining look at the evolution of hip hop from 1981 1983 SIX WORD REVIEW Lest we foolishly forget the pioneers More fun andconfident than its predecessor in every way A joy to behold. Amazing to think that vol 1 of this series covered the entire first decade of hip hop, while this second volume only covers three years It really illustrates how intense the scene became as hip hop becamewide spread And not just the music of hip hop, but the culture in this volume we getabout the other urban arts, such as graffiti and breakdancing We also begin to see how some pioneers on the West Coast begin to dabble in hip hop We also see how hip hop starts making its way intomainstream venues both on television and in clubs and galleries in Manhattan I found the focus of this volume to be much tighter, maybe because the time frame is tighter I also like some of the new narrative tricks that Piskor employs such as usingsaturated colors to flash forward in time Overall, the narratives seemed easier to follow as Piskor spends a littletime on each person or group than he did in the first volume. {Free Epub} Þ Hip Hop Family Tree, Vol. 2 ⚠ Covering The Early Years Of, Hip Hop Has Made A Big Transition From The Parks And Rec Rooms To Downtown Clubs And Vinyl Records The Performers Make Moves To Separate Themselves From The Paying Customers By Dressing And Flamboyant Until A Young Group Called RUN DMC Comes On The Scene To Take Things Back To The Streets This Volume Covers Hits Like Afrika Bambaataa S Planet Rock, Grandmaster Flash And The Furious Five S The Message, The Movie Wild Style And Introduces Superstars Like NWA, The Beastie Boys, Doug E Fresh, KRS One, ICE T, And Early Public Enemy Cameos By Dolemite, LL Cool J, Notorious BIG, And New Kids On The Block TheI learn to focus on the fashions, art style, and caricatures of this series, theI enjoy reading it Hip Hop Family Tree can feel tedious at times, as it constantly trades exposition with snippets of dialogue and glimpses as the creations of particular tracks.Now I m looking to find if anyone has created accompanying playlists for these books, which would greatly enhance the reading experience.
