Public Enemy co-founder Chuck D is retelling Hip Hop’s story in a brand new anthology. Chuck D Presents This Day In Rap And Hip-Hop History highlights the advancement of the genre from DJ Kool Herc’s 1973 party at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue to the present.

This Day In Rap And Hip-Hop History examines the artists, music, and moments that impacted the global phenomenon. Over 100 portraits of the culture’s most influential figures are included in the publication as well.

“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,” says Kendrick Lamar.

LL Cool J adds, “The power of self-expression. Unapologetically. Taught by the teacher himself. Chuck D!!!. Reading this book is like reliving my life all over again.”

Chuck D Presents This Day In Rap And Hip-Hop History is available at all major retailers.
