In this volume, witness the birth of hip-hop and learn how this musical genre became a cultural revolution. From its humble origins at house parties in the Bronx, where DJs mixed old records to create new sounds, charismatic MCs let their clever lyrics flow, and B-boys and B-girls pioneered inventive dance moves, hip-hop quickly became a musical and cultural revolution. In this volume of History Comics, we follow Aaliyah, a hip-hop superfan who is about to get a lesson in all things "old school" courtesy of her dad. The pair take a day trip to the Bronx, where Aaliyah discovers the many unsung heroes who helped create the foundations of hip-hop.
