This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: This tour book commemorates the Cut Chemist & DJ Shadow Renegades of Rhythm tour, a national tour featuring the two DJs playing Afrika Bambaataa's legendary, 40,000-strong record collection (now archived at Cornell University) as a tribute to the original architect of hip hop. As DJ Shadow says, "This has never been done before, definitely not on this scale. They're his records, with his blessings. This isn't just ANY copy of 'X' breakbeat, it's THE copy, THE copy that started everything." Renegades of Rhythm, edited by Johan Kugelberg, features full-color reproductions of original records, flyers, photographs, drawings, test pressings and acetates from Afrika Bambaataa's archive. Alongside rarely seen images are exclusive texts by DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist and Afrika Bambaataa himself, detailing the history of the Zulu Nation, hip hop and DJ culture, as well as lists of Bambaataa's favorite breaks.
