From mainstream pioneers to underground icons – featuring biographies, liner notes, artwork, and more.
A new book celebrating hip-hop producers, titled From Boom Bap to Trap: Hip-Hop’s Greatest Producers, is being published by Hamilcar Publications in 2022.
Written and illustrated by journalist Riley Wallace, From Boom Bap to Trap focuses on producers including MF DOOM, DJ Premier, and RZA, alongside Easy Mo Bee and Paul C.
In doing so, the 312-page book brings together biographies, list of key tracks, liner notes and artwork.
As Wallace writes, “until now, hip-hop heads have been forced to navigate a sea of wiki entries, incomplete bios and confusing credits (or none at all), which has caused some mind-melting tracks to be underappreciated or completely undiscovered. No more.”
From Boom Bap to Trap: Hip-Hop’s Greatest Producers is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter.
