This book rules. I love everything from the artwork and the flow of the stories to the paper they printed it on. Any fan of hip hop should have this. It centers on the best years, too. Piskor also points out how influential graffiti was to the hip hop scene. The book includes guest appearances by Blondie and the Ramones (there are many others). I really like how Piskor shows how kids would jack power from electric poles so they could play wherever they wanted.

It's an encyclopedic comics history of hip-hop, complete with pages aged to look like they came from a collection from the hip hop era. Biz Markie says "This is the comic of all time." Who am I to refute the Diabolical One?
