"SOS is proud to present a collaboration with Ed Piskor and Fantagraphics Books for Issue 12 of the internationally acclaimed Hip Hop Family Tree comic.
To celebrate the final monthly issue of HHFT we've teamed up with super DJ/Producer, Jorun Bombay, to drop an incredible flexi-postcard found in every copy! What better way to represent a comic than cutting "Hip Hop Family Tree Pt.1" into a record made from paper including FREE MP3 DOWNLOAD.
Issue 12 makes it's debut at Comic-Con International: San Diego this week where Ed Piskor is up for 3 Eisner Awards for Book 3, which is featured in this issue. There's too many incredible milestones in this issue to name! LL Cool J makes a record with Rick Rubin and Def Jam. KRS One gets arrested and meets his future DJ. The Fat Boys and Run DMC headline the first national Hip Hop tours. Just to name a few. PLUS: This issue comes with the exclusive Slice of Spice flexi disc of hip hop gold!" Slice of Spice
"On March 22nd 2016, hip-hop lost one of its most iconic voices when Malik Taylor (better known as Phife Dawg aka The Five Foot Assassin) passed away following a 25 year battle with diabetes. The mark he left on the music industry is well documented, most notably for being a founding member of A Tribe Called Quest, one of the greatest & most consistent rap groups of all time.
This mixtape from Jerry Nice entitled "Live & Direct – A Phife Dawg Tribute" pays homage not only to his work within the group, but also several solo tracks & guest features throughout his career. "
All proceeds from the CD's go to The American Diabetes Association.
