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.


Whether at home or on-the-go, when it comes to vaporizers, we want it all. We want to be able to use full flower or potent concentrates depending on the mood–and keep it smooth without any harsh smoke. We want multiple modes for unique combinations of flavor and vapor. We want an oven that’s as easy to clean as it is adjustable depending on the length of the session. Sounds impossible, right? It’s not with PAX Plus. In addition to packing all those features into one perfectly portable device, it’s also one the most sleek and stylish products that’s come out recently.
