The book, which features 200 illustrations is now available at a low price through UGHH.com
Born in the Bronx: A Visual Record of the Early Days of Hip Hop was Edited by Johan Kugelberg, features photographs by Joe Conzo, a foreword by Afrika Bambaataa, original flyer art by Buddy Esquire, and a detailed timeline by Jeff Chang (author of the critically acclaimed Can't Stop, Won't Stop).
The photo's contained in the tome come from Bronx bred Joe Conzo, who is regarded as "Hip Hop's first photographer." Conzo's photos span from 1977-1982. Additional photos were contributed by Charlie Ahearn and Henry Chalfant, both well-known for their historical coverage of the NYC graffiti scene over the years.
Images in the book capture such notable acts of the day as The Cold Crush Brothers, Treacherous 3, Afrika Bambaataa, Busy Bee, Run DMC, Wayne "The Hip Hop Ventriliquist" & Charlie, Fantastic Romantic, Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five, Funky Four + 1, Kool DJ AJ Scratch, Grand Wizzard Theodore and more.
Additional art comes courtesy of flyers created by Buddy Esquire, who drew up various 1-sheets advertising early hip-hop shows between 1978-1985.
The book also features a number of essays as penned by such hip-hop legends as GrandMaster Caz, JDL, Joe Conzo, Mare 139, GrandWizzard Theodore, LA Sunshine and Jorge "Fabel" Pabon plus a poem by DJ Disco Wiz and an interview with Buddy Esquire.
The embossed hardcover edition will also contain a dust cover that unfolds to reveal a poster: "The Hip Hop Map of the Bronx" by Joe Conzo and Tony Tone.
