Jim Fricke/ Charlie Ahearn – Yes Yes Yall: Oral History Of Hip-Hops First Decade
Hip-hop today is ubiquitous. Like rock and roll before it, it has transformed music, art, dance, and fashion while capturing millions of listeners. But, the real story of hip-hop’s birth — a cultural innovation that rose from the creativity and vision of street kids surviving in the bombed-out Bronx of the 1970s-has never been told. Until now.
Yes Yes Y’all is the first and only account of hip-hop’s origins, told in the never-before-published words of its founders and stars and highlighted by hundreds of vintage photos and flyers.
With over fifty of hip-hop’s stars and trailblazers sounding forth, including Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, Kool DJ Herc, Melle Mel, Busy Bee, Grand Wizard Theodore, Grandmaster Caz, Rahiem, Fab 5 Freddy, Tony Tone, Kool DJ AJ and DMC, Yes Yes Y’all crackles with vitality, humor, and menace.
