Fine Art Friday: Lisa Leone - "THE RISE OF HIP HOP"

Bronx bred photographer Lisa Leone grew up in the heyday of late 80s and early 90s hip hop and documented some of the superstars-to-be and lesser known groups, who oddly look like the youth of today, and recently published a book with her own catalog of pics from that era. Capturing some of the iconic figures in the world of hip-hop at the beginning stages of their careers, the early images of Nas, Snoop, Mobb Deep, Guru and many others make us all nostalgic for the days when they ran the airwaves and made us excited to hear new hip hop music. Check some of the highlights below and her site for more in depth info.
