This encyclopedic comics history of the formative years of hip hop captures the vivid personalities and magnetic performances of old-school pioneers and early stars like DJ Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, plus the charismatic players behind the scenes like Russell Simmons; Debbie Harry, Keith Haring and other luminaries make cameos.The lore of the early days of hip hop has become the stuff of myth, so what better way to document this fascinating, epic true story than in another great American mythological medium — the comic book? From exciting young talent and self-proclaimed hip hop nerd Ed Piskor, acclaimed for his hacker graphic novel Wizzywig, comes this explosively entertaining, encyclopedic history of the formative years of the music genre that changed global culture. Originally serialized on the hugely popular website Boing Boing, The Hip Hop Family Tree is now collected in a single volume cleverly presented and packaged in a style mimicking the Marvel comics of the same era. Piskor’s exuberant yet controlled cartooning takes you from the parks and rec rooms of the South Bronx to the night clubs, recording studios, and radio stations where the scene started to boom, capturing the flavor of late-1970s New York City in panels bursting with obsessively authentic detail. With a painstaking, vigorous and engaging Ken Burns meets- Stan Lee approach, the battles and rivalries, the technical innovations, the triumphs and failures are all thoroughly researched and lovingly depicted. plus the charismatic players behind the scenes like Russell Simmons, Sylvia Robinson and then-punker Rick Rubin. Piskor also traces graffiti master Fab 5 Freddy’s rise in the art world, and Debbie Harry, Keith Haring, The Clash, and other luminaries make cameos as the music and culture begin to penetrate downtown Manhattan and the mainstream at large. Like the acclaimed hip hop documentaries Style Wars and Scratch, The Hip Hop Family Tree is an exciting and essential cultural chronicle and a must for hip hop fans, pop-culture addicts, and anyone who wants to know how it went down back in the day.

Wallace journeyed to California in Feb, 1997 to uphold his forthcoming record a melody video for its “Lead Single”, “Hypnotize“. On Mar, 5 1997 he furnished a radio talk with The Dog House on KYLD in “San Francisco”, California. In the talk he affirmed that he had employed safety since he feared for his protection; this was since he was a superstar figure in general, not because he was a rapper. Life after Death was planned for release on Mar, 25 1997. On Jan, 8 1997, Biggie Smalls & Sean “Puffy” Combs completed a video “What’s Beef” which was directed by Dave Meyers. On Mar, 8 1997, he offered a medal to Toni Braxton at the 11th Annual Soul Train Music Awards in Los Angeles & was booed by some of the audience.
On Mar, 9 1997, at about 12:30 a.m., Wallace left with his staff in two GMC Suburbans to go back to his hotel after the Fire Department clogged the festivity in the early hours because of congestion. Wallace journeyed in the front seat next to his associates, Damion “D-Roc” Butler, Junior M.A.F.I.A. member Lil’ Cease and driver, Gregory “G-Money”
After 15 minutes, the streets were jam-packed with people leaving the occasion. Wallace’s motor vehicle stopped up at a red fifty yards from the museum. A black Chevrolet Impala pulled up next to Wallace’s motor vehicle. The driver was an African American guy dressed in an azure outfit, rolled down his window, drew a Nine mm pistol and fired at the GMC Suburban; 4 bullets hit Wallace in the upper body. Wallace’s staff rushed him to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but he was pronounced dead at 1:15 a.m.
Thus a Great HIP HOP master left this world.
