A few months ago I caught on to 9th Wonder lecturing at Harvard and creating what amounts to a history of Hip-Hop to be catalogued.

9th Wonder Submits 200 Albums to Harvard Archives

Now here is another project with similar merit from Bill Adler of Def Jam. This is a collection of dope ass pictures from his catalogue documenting the rise of Def Jam during the golden age of Hip-Hop.

Now it’s not that Hip-Hop needs to be given credibility by gaining recognition from elite/Ivy league academic institutions, but there is a certain amount of satisfaction that people understand how important this culture is to Americana. Use the Source link to check out more pictures and big shout out to Patta Sneaker Shop for introducing me to this project.
