To celebrate the resounding critical and commercial success of the first two volumes of Ed Piskor's unprecedented graphic history of Hip Hop, we are offering the two books in a deluxe slipcase, drawn and designed by the artist, featuring exclusive all-new cover art on each volume.

As a special bonus for this slipcase set, Piskor has drawn a 24-page comic book — Hip Hop Family Tree #300 — that elegantly reflects the confluence of hip hop and comics. Piskor tells the behind-the-scenes story of the famous 1991 Spike Lee-directed Levi Jeans commercial starring Rob Liefeld, who went on to create Youngblood and co-found Image Comics, not to mention ending up on the radar of gangster rapper Eazy E. This exclusive book serves as a perfect parody/pastiche/homage to ’90s Image comics and hip hop.
