It’s easy to view successful musicians as larger than life figures, captivating crowds before disappearing into their mansions to sip champagne. Of course, when you peel back the curtain, you see the hours of blood, sweat, and tears that go into becoming that icon. Back to the Lab: Hip Hop Home Studios takes you inside the homes where the magic happens so you can see a collection of artists in their natural environments. Producers and DJs from around the world are profiled with their gear strewn about their home. Raph Rashid does a fantastic job capturing the hustle in the photographs in this book, allowing you to garner a respect for the craft of music making. Keep a copy on the shelf next to your Roland TR-808.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
