Do you truly know the origins and foundations of hip-hop or do you believe the false, misleading stories told today? People may speak about elements of hip-hop such as the breakdancing, graffiti artists or rappers, but they fail to recognise the true foundations of hip-hop culture.
Cash - a Founder of hip-hop, amongst a number of other Fathers and Mothers of hip-hop culture - details his childhood upbringing through different perspectives and anecdotal stories. From gangsters and drug dealers to designers and LGBTQ communities, drawing from his own experience, Cash demonstrates the real aspects of culture which led to the creation of hip-hop culture. Paying respect to those who most effectively represented hip-hop in contemporary society, the highs and lows of living in New York City are explored in the essential definition of what hip-hop is.
