From 1988’s “Posse on Broadway” by Sir Mix-a-lot to the success of Seattle’s Macklemore, Northwest hip-hop has been an essential part of the national music scene. Author and professor Dr. Daudi Abe explains how the Northwest’s rich contributions from Grammy-winning rappers, world champion break dance crews, tastemaker hip-hop magazines, renowned designers, and grassroots organizations has influenced and created a living document of our region’s style as well as social and political movements.
