Justin BUA, one of the many important names in hiphop to recognize (especially in artistry), is preparing for a national book tour across the country, promoting his new book called The Legends Of Hiphop. The book is scheduled for a November 8th release date. With that being said, he’s teaming up with DJs Q-Bert & Mix Master Mike to make this happen! The two DJs havent performed alongside each other in over ten years, so this event is definitely special to be a part of. Justin & DJ Q-Bert (who’s also featured in the book) will be signing books as well. So… get your cameras ready! November is right around the corner.
Groundbreaking artist Justin BUA profiles and paints fifty key figures, including everyone from Afrika Bambaataa and Grandmaster Flash to President Obama and Jay-Z, providing a portrait of each legend in a style reminiscent of the great masters. The artwork is accompanied by an engaging autobiographical narrative that contextualizes the impact each icon has had on Bua’s personal life and on the hip-hop culture at large. With a foreword by Chuck D, this landmark volume is more than a celebration of hip hop; it is the definitive word on the subject as told by Bua, one of hip hop’s leading artists and a legend in his own right. – Harper Collins
