This is a pic from long time 7H contributor, Frank Franklin II who has shot many of our album covers and press shots. You may recognize his work from the 1st 2 J-Live albums as well as works from Djinji Brown, El Da Sensei and The Unspoken Heard. He is now an AP photographer and was camped out yesterday hawking Martha, Martha, Martha Stewart. check him out

I put this pic of the godfather Kool Herc. That line is taken from Black Thought on "Web" from the latest from The Roots "The Tipping Point"

One thing I would love to start is a Hip-Hop Hal Of Fame and Institute where we could celebrate and archive the works of these founders. I remember hearing about a Hip Hop Hall of Fame up in New Rochelle, NY but I haven't heard anything about in years.

The other pic is from the Wall Of Fame up in Harlem taken by Frank as well during a shoot for Djinji Brown's "Sirround Sound"

Just finished this book by Alex Ogg "The Men Behind Def Jam"

It is a great book that looks at Def Jam and the History of the culture.
