Description

The Art Behind The Tape is the first book dedicated to the Mixtape Culture. It compiles a collection of interviews and artwork compiled by DJ Mars and The Art Behind The Tape Team- Bril Ndiaye, Maurice Garland, and Tai Saint Louis.

This book is the most thorough look ever done about mixtape culture. It begins in the park jams all the way to the current day and shows how mixtapes shaped Hip Hop over the decades. The book features (deep breath) : Red Alert, Jazzy Joyce, Brucie B, DJ Envy, Doo Wop, Cipha Sounds, Funkmaster Flex, Mick, Jazzy Jeff, DJ Clue, Ron G, DJ Premier, DJ Self, Dj Whoo Kid, Silva-Surfa, Stretch Armstrong, Cosmic Kev, Neil Armstrong, DJ Skee, Statik Selektah, DJ Drama, DJ Soul and countless other tapes with a forward by Kid Capri. The Art Behind The Tape also showcases so many classic tape covers from every era, it’s just an endless amount of eye candy, and trip down memory lane for any 90’s rap fan. With over 200 pages of full color mixtape art and interviews this book is so expertly done we can’t do it enough justice.

God’s favorite DJ Clark Kent says “God bless DJ Mars for telling the story of our beloved mixtape world! This is a perfect read for anybody who wants to learn about one of Hip Hop’s most vital tools, the mixtape.”

Just Blaze adds “To say that I love this book is an understatement. Mars and his team have accomplished the seemingly impossible and presented this archive of History in a way that can only be described as a shinning example of their dedication and love for the craft and more importantly, our culture!”

At its core hip hop is all about independence and self expression. I feel it is my duty as a card carrying member of the hip hop community to tell this story the right way! – DJ MARS
