    What ended in 81, has picked up yet again in the next two years in Hip Hop lore in Piskor s Family Tree, Vol 2 All the cool cats are back with a whole new trove of rappers and their DJ s, most notably my favorite Run D.M.C Rhymes are rapped and verses are spat DJ s scratch from vinyl that is phat The story goes on and stays on course but as happened before, we become lost in the force.The sonic and thematic fury of the of the first offering is surely amplified definitely but, the same debilitations in approach and application are here again as well Again and again vociferous name dropping and gritty details overwhelmingly saturate every single page While this might work for a successful MC assault, its just too much to take in during reading and its beyond easy to drown in this cacophony of names, style, and details that is as frothing as the context that birthed it The single greatest strength of the series as also its greatest weakness While an in media res approach leaves us with a highly verisimilitudinous feel, the camera viewpoint as it were remains at its flat angle Since we re most always in the moment sans any zoom outs, its difficult to chronologize where we and the characters are in the story A great many things are clearly occurring contemporaneously, and a zoom out here and there would have added a greatly needed degree in the making sense of it all department Sure, I respect what Piskor is trying to do here yet, the giddy tone is highly deluging, much to the final product s detriment It feels like from the sources themselves, Piskor is trying to throw down as many details are humanly possible Yes, this does humanize the story and adds a surely enjoyable dimension we might not discover in a scholarly approach But, this approach results in a choppy mess of cobbled together micro one shots merely bounded by a chronological and thematic arena that is poorly demarcated.I am repeating myself but just like the last one, a few chapters would really have helped chop up as it were the story No doubt, not all comics need to follow the same format and or style but, there s a reason these things exist Punctuation is awesome and so too is the work of editors, which were curiously absent, in one way or another, on this track.Two thumbs up for what Piskor is attempting to accomplish here.One thumb up for the finished product It s like that yall.

    Still excellent but not as poignant as the first Piskor spends a lot of time talking about the making of the film Wild Style and while I recognize its importance, I think he spent too much time on it I m also not entirely sure that the degree to which he incorporates the graffiti movement isn t a distraction from his ultimate purpose I understand the two are perhaps inextricably linked, but every time he goes off on the topic I find my mind wandering until he gets back to hip hop I love how he includes little Easter eggs here and there, like a one panel reference to a major rap artist as a child, listening to the artist Piskor is discussing at the moment in the narrative It does cause things to jump around a bit than I d like, but the material is so interesting, I don t really mind I love the pinups at the end of each volume, too I enjoyed the series so much I had to buy my own copy of the box set with the first two.

    Every bit as fascinating and entertaining as Volume 1 Hip Hop is one of the many musical genres I know very little about Nonetheless, I found this to be an engrossing read I could only wish for an accompanying soundtrack I do recognize names from my youth, and it s nice to have faces and a context for them at last I ll definitely keep up with future volumes in this series, as well as Piskor s work in general.

    Important musical history of genre that was thought to only be a fad This will have you searching YouTube for old school videos for all the songs that are highlighted.

    Even if Ed Piskor s continuing history of hip hop wasn t highly entertaining and informative , who could resist a Treasury Edition sized cover of Afrika Bambaataa in a Wally Woodesque spaceship With all the irreverent enthusiasm of his Hip Hop Family Tree Vol 1, Pisker brings his history up to around 1983 That means the rise of Run DMC is covered, the origins of The Beastie Boys, the beginning of beat boxing, the beginning of Def Jam Records Plus, pinups by Katie Skelly, Matt Bors and Piskor crams a lot into 96 pages Highly recommended if you re interested in the complex and all too human fits and starts of a revolutionary art form.

    Amazing to think that vol 1 of this series covered the entire first decade of hip hop, while this second volume only covers three years It really illustrates how intense the scene became as hip hop became wide spread And not just the music of hip hop, but the culture in this volume we get about the other urban arts, such as graffiti and breakdancing We also begin to see how some pioneers on the West Coast begin to dabble in hip hop We also see how hip hop starts making its way into mainstream venues both on television and in clubs and galleries in Manhattan I found the focus of this volume to be much tighter, maybe because the time frame is tighter I also like some of the new narrative tricks that Piskor employs such as using saturated colors to flash forward in time Overall, the narratives seemed easier to follow as Piskor spends a little time on each person or group than he did in the first volume.

    The I learn to focus on the fashions, art style, and caricatures of this series, the I enjoy reading it Hip Hop Family Tree can feel tedious at times, as it constantly trades exposition with snippets of dialogue and glimpses as the creations of particular tracks.Now I m looking to find if anyone has created accompanying playlists for these books, which would greatly enhance the reading experience.
