HIP HOP Large Format Book x 10


A very special large format edition (UK A4) limted to 10 copies only.


From the BLAG Vaults, a selection of important long-form interviews with hip hop culture icons, collated in a luxury coffee table book or paperback.


Originally published in BLAG magazine over the past few decades.


Inspired and intuitively driven by the music, when Sarah J. Edwards and Sally A. Edwards began BLAG, they were taken under the wings by many of the artists fans grew up admiring, as they stepped-up to play the big brother role to the twins.


Juxtapositions of bygone samples and future gazing facts. Real hip hop is as iconic as it is unique.

Beats that ignite the senses.

Words that strike emotions.

Hip hop’s power is an irreplaceable force.


In these interviews, given Sarah and Sally's relationships with the artists you’ll find rare conversation, real advice, striking humour and influence. You won't read anything like it anywhere. Highly inspiring and laugh out loud funny. We've collated some exceptionally feel good stories together for this very special release.
