Journalist Vikki Tobak dug deep into the world of outtakes from over 100 hip-hop photoshoots and paired them with interviews and essays from industry legends for the new book Contact High: A Visual History of Hip-Hop. Throughout the 300-page journey that is Contact High, you’ll explore the contact sheets from photographers who played critical roles in bringing the visuals of early hip-hop to the world at large. Barron Claiborne’s photographs of the Notorious B.I.G. in the crown. Jamil GS’s photos of Jay-Z next to the boat. Janette Beckman’s shots of Slick Rick. Whether it’s the iconic album covers, t-shirts or posters that we all know and love, the imagery in this book is perfect for music and photography fans alike. There’s also a pretty deep foreword by Questlove that seals the deal.
