Librarianz N the Hood

Cornell Library’s Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections is going big on hip hop and rap music.

The founding materials in Cornell’s hip hop collection were the gift of collector and author Johan Kugelberg. Materials in the collection form the basis for the book Born in the Bronx: a Visual Record of the Early Days of Hip Hop (November 2007) edited by Johan Kugelberg (author), Afrika Bambaataa (foreword), Buddy Esquire (contributor), Jeff Chang (contributor) and Joe Conzo (photographer).

I can just see the librarians dripping in bling, hanging out with some dirty-assed fly honeys, and digging Gangsta tunes from Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube and 50 Cent. (You can tell I’m white, can’t you?)

  1. What an imagination! I am not a “hip-hop” fan per say…but i am a music history buff. and price of admission at $3-$4 it would be worth to see the emergence of rap and how it evolved – very interesting thanx for the tip
