“Learn the ABCs with a beat!”
Former music business executive turned author Howie Abrams is bringing forth an illustrated Hip-Hop Alphabet book to young kids and all hip-hop fans of every age. Brooklyn graffiti artist and MC, Michael “Kaves” McLeer, is the co-author of this project that calls on the readers to “take a wondrous alphabetical journey through the glorious history of hip-hop in this kid-friendly introduction to the music that defined a generation.” Abrams and Kaves have used the twenty-six letters to shine light on emcee icons such as LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys and Jay-Z. Also in the book are elements of hip-hop music and culture that will essentially educate everyone of all ages to the fundamentals of graffiti, breakdancing, DJs and turntables. This is history and education creatively blended together through a fun and engaging media platform. Print is clearly not dead and this project is just another proof.
Run DMC’s Darryl McDaniels wrote the foreword to the Hip-Hop Alphabet book and is available now for pre-order on Amazon.
