Politics and Prose at Union Market
Originally a featured column on the music website Mass Appeal, this collection of photos, outtakes from over one hundred photo shoots, interviews, and essays, is a stunning visual and textual anthology of the history of hip-hop. Covering the early years up through today’s hip-hop artists, the album features Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, A Tribe Called Quest, Nas, Wu-Tang Clan, N.W.A, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne, and many more. The collection’s editor, Vikki Tobak, a journalist, former producer, and founding curator of FotoD.C.’s film program, will be joined by Barron Claiborne, a prolific photographer perhaps best known for the iconic Biggie Crown photo, and Danny Hastings, listed as one of Complex Magazine’s fifteen rap photographers every rap fan should know.
