The history of Hip Hop Music and Culture is explored in Pittsburg Cartoonist Ed Piskor's excellent weekly series, online at Boing Boing and in the gigantic treasury edition published format from Fantagraphics Books. We discuss the interesting performance art intersections that helped evolve the Hip Hop Movement from playing at rec rooms in the bronx, to the world wide phenomenon it became.

Ed talks about his big break working with Harvey Pekar, his self published work, and more.
