This comics history continues covering the early years of 1981-1983, when hip-hop makes a transition from parks and rec rooms to downtown clubs and vinyl records. The performers make moves to separate themselves from the paying customers by adopting flamboyant regalia until a young team from Hollis, Queens called Run-DMC comes on the scene to take things back to the streets. This volume covers hits like Afrika Bambaataa's Planet rock, The Message by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, the cult film Wild style, and introduces future superstars like NWA, The Beastie Boys, Doug E. Fresh, KRS-One, Ice T, and Public Enemy. Cameos by Dolemite, LL Cool J, Norotious B.I.G, and New Kids on the Block.
