"Being in an Ed Piskor comic is cool enough to freeze hot water." – Fab Five Freddy

"This is the comic of all time." – Biz Markie

"This is the comic I’ve been waiting 40 years to read." – Harry Allen (Public Enemy Media Assassin)

"If ever a chapter of modern American history were ripe for the Classics Illustrated comic book treatment, it is hip-hop’s first decade. Ed Piskor, a talented writer and artist who has long savored the connections between comic books and hip-hop, has now written that chapter in the seductive and entertaining form of Hip Hop Family Tree. He weaves dozens and dozens of individual stories into an unprecedented book-length narrative encapsulating the out-sized drive, creativity, humor and violence that defined hip-hop culture from its gestation in New York’s outer boroughs in the early Seventies to its thrilling first steps onto the world stage via records and tv in the early Eighties. … It’s a great great story and Piskor tells it immaculately well.” – Bill Adler, co-author, Def Jam: The First 25 Years of the Last Great Record Label

"They say the story of Jesus is the greatest ever told, but JC didn’t steal a DJ mixer during the New York Blackout of ‘77 or bomb a subway car with Fab 5 Freddy. With his ‘Hip Hop Family Tree,’ comics artist Ed Piskor delves into the history of hip-hop and gets straight-up biblical, penning a ‘who-begat-whom’ with a b-boy twist." – Jonathan Zwickel, MTV.com

Tried finishing this up for the weekend but that didn’t happen, so here it is. A bit of some R&B and funk and 80s jamz. The blends are a bit whatever, but life be’s that way sometimes.

*SIDENOTE: If you like this type of stuff, definitely listen to Sparkle Motion and their NIGHT HYPE mix, or really anything they do. So good.

I might or might not be watching The Last Dragon with director’s commentary right now and just noticed William H. Macy was Vanity’s manager (that jacket wtf!). Also a bummer Michael Schultz stopped making hip-hop/Motown movies.

this video is kind of perfect

Remember when Joey Ramone was playing tuba in the Bobby Brown video on the Ghostbusters II soundtrack?

Found the new Banksy piece on Broadway

codeinedrums asked: Hey, I love your four summer mixes, have you got any more like them? Or totally different ones?

Thanks I’m glad there’s other people that are also into the same corny love songs I listen to. I get kinda weirdly self-conscious with those after I put it together mostly because I’ve had Serato and Ableton installed on my laptop for a few years now and I never bothered to learn them to put together a proper mix. One of these days maybe…

If you’re into something more different I might do something for October again, like this one I did a few yrs back: http://waxinandmilkin.com/post/12053103670/october-jamz-1

Saw this earlier at the New York Film Festival. It was good and Spike made L.A. look so different.
