Questlove ‘Hip-Hop Is History’ book release information

Questlove has officially announced the release date of his upcoming book, Hip-hop is history.

Debuts June 11 Hip-hop is history appears via Questlove’s own AUWA Books imprint and is co-written with Ben Greenman. The book delves into “the creative and cultural forces that created and shaped hip-hop,” but with his own personal twist as a young black boy growing up in a musical family in Philadelphia. “It is at once an intimate, keenly observed story of a cultural revolution and a sweeping, grand theory about the evolution of the great artistic movement of our time,” the press release reads. “And of course, Questlove approaches it not only with the encyclopedic fluency and passion of an obsessive fan, but also with the expertise and originality of an innovative participant.”

Questlove’s Hip-Hop Is History will be published June 11 in hardcover, e-book and digital audio.
