Hip Hop Family Tree is the comic book history of hip hop, as documented by Ed Piskor. This mix is a tribute to the collected Book 3, out this week, and contains pretty much every track mentioned in the volume.
If you have a comic shop near you, the monthly issues are kicking off imminently. I recommend the independent @TravellingMan, as they were kind enough to order me in the latest volume and they display Piskor’s work prominently!
