Store Suspended

Hi!  While BMLP is searching for a new home, we are suspending online shopping through this online storefront. However, you can still support BMLP with online shopping through our page (click here to be redirected)! You can find the books you want and have them shipped directly to your home. A percentage of each purchase is donated to BMLP and will help us as we transition into our next phase.

We will continue to work to get books into the hands of under-resourced students despite the physical store closing so your contributions continue to make an impact in the lives of children.

Thank you for your continued support of BMLP and the mission to get books into the hands of all children.

With love,

The ManaTeam

The work of pioneering photographer Joe Conzo forms the backbone of this crucial documentary journey through Hip Hop's formative years. Curator and writer Johan Kugelberg builds on this foundation by gathering the scattered remains of a movement that had its eye on the future from day one. The energetic flyer artwork of Buddy Esquire provides another aesthetic pillar of the book and is supported by personal contributions from influential creators including Grandmaster Caz, LA Sunshine, JDL, MARE 139 and Grandwizzard Theodore. A foreword by Legendary DJ and Bronx native, Afrika Bambaataa and hip hop timeline by bestselling author, Jeff Chang round out this important collection and add further context to the movement's explosive early period.
