Counter-culture in the 1980s, hip-hop is today a mass culture, whose influence is as much aesthetic as commercial. Between dance, beatbox, rap, fashion, attitude and graffiti, his expressions are plural. How to tell the emergence of such a rich and varied artistic movement? "Hip-hop 360" has nothing to do with a traditional catalogue: this book carries the voices of hip-hop actors loudly, to transcribe the energy and ingenuity of a current constantly listening to new forms. creation and distribution. Journalists, beatmakers, rappers, dancers, producers, photographers and musicians trace the emergence of French hip-hop and its identity, shaped from the American model by adapting music, flow and narratives to the social and cultural history of the Hexagon.
To reflect this culture of contrasts, a bold layout mixes numerous texts (first-person accounts, lyrics by emblematic rappers, punchlines, historical and cultural recontextualizations, etc.) and mixes up a fascinating iconography. Posters, record covers, vintage clothing, vintage photographs and iconic objects invite us to dive into four decades of music commented on by those who made hip-hop a total art.
