So, I recently saw an image someone posted on Facebook of a hip hop comic. I was delighted to see, as I love anything related to hip hop, especially an old comic strip, and I tried to find out where the hell it came from!
The guy who posted it didn’t know, which sunk me into an awful depression that I’ve only just now been able to pull myself out of, having discovered a site that has even more of this hip hop comic…….
The comic itself is from decades ago, and it is called, “The Hip Hop Family Tree: A Look into the Viral Propagation of a Culture.” And it is FUUUUN!
Here’s one of the images I found on the site, and please click this linkto the site if you enjoy these comics, it is well worth looking into! BTW, all of the links below are fully-functioning on the page I linked this from. Once again, that site is here – http://boingboing.net/tag/hip-hop-family-tree
This really is one of the most entertaining forms of documentary! I give it three thumbs up.
It spans a ton of different artists, and of course, mentions Rick Rubin as well as the Beastie Boys…
Nicely done, Brain Rot and Boing Boing, who I give full credit to for posting these images. There are MANY more of these comic pages, as I only posted a sampling of them. Hats off to everyone involved in the creation of these wonderfully informative AND FUN hip hop comics!
