KRS-One’s Book Signing Party: The Gospel of Hip Hop

November 10th, 2009, I was invited to shoot a book signing party for one of my childhood hero, KRS-One of B.D.P. KRS-One released a book titled, The Gospel of Hip Hop. I had the pleasure of shaking hands with the Legend. Amongst these legends, there were Hip Pioneers who came out to represent and show support, The Father of Hip Hop DJ Kool Herc, DJ Cool V, Freddie Fox, Sadat X of Brand Nubian, Hakim of Channel Live  and many other. They took us back with classic portable music devices like cassette players to the begin evolution of the “Turntables aka The 1s & 2s.

The teacher it a moment and spoke to the crowd about what Hip-Hop really is to the founding generations, today’s generation and the generations to come.
