I often get asked “why do you post so much hip hop music on this blog?” and “what’s the connection between comics and hip hop culture?”. To which I answer: “BECAUSE.” and “BASICALLY EVERYTHING!”.

From their underground beginnings, to their acceptance in mainstream culture. From the similarities between over the top characters, the super groups, the feuds, the team-ups and their ability to advance their art form and re-invent themselves and their medium over the years.

Hip Hop and comic books will always be linked, and my love for both is the main inspiration for this blog.

Above is selections from
Ed Piskor’s HIP HOP FAMILY TREE TWO-IN-ONE
from this past Free Comics Day. It illustrates better than I could how closely linked the two mediums are.
