Fresh: Hip Hop Don't Stop
NY, Random House, (1985). A "definitive guide to the music, the fashion, the art and the dance of hip hop," the first such book written from within the culture. Nelson George was writer, critic, and filmmaker who, the year after this book was published, helped finance Spike Lee's first film, She's Gotta Have It. Included in this book is a piece by dance critic and historian Sally Banes, on breaking; Banes wrote the first major news article on breaking for the Village Voice: "Physical Graffiti: Breaking is Hard to Do." Trace edge wear, else fine in wrappers. Hard to find, especially in this condition. [#034790] $400
