Filled with more than 250 images of artists including Ice Cube, The Notorious B.I.G., LL Cool J, Naughty by Nature, Public Enemy, 50 Cent, N.W.A, Snoop Dogg, Lil' Kim, Flavor Flav, Lauren Hill, Queen Latifah, TLC, many that have never before been published, this book is set to become the new hip-hop photography bible

With exclusive, behind-the-scenes access, preeminent photographer Brother Ernie captures the last four decades of the evolution of hip-hop--the styles that grew from it, and the artists who shaped it. Complete with Brother Ernie's personal anecdotes of time spent with subjects, and stories behind the photographs, Hip-Hop at the End of the World shares intimate moments from the most important era of hip-hop.

After picking up a camera in the 1973 to document the graffiti art that dominated New York City, Ernest Paniccioli started his journey of whole-heartedly capturing the scene during the most fertile years of hip-hop. Always armed with a 35mm camera, he successfully photographed nearly every rapper of note since the genre's inception, making him the go-to photographer for magazines like Word Up and Rap Masters. Hip Hop at the End of the World is a carefully curated selection of photographs from Brother Ernie's extensive archives, celebrating over 40 years of swag in one of the most complete records of the most crucial movements in American music.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"More than 250 vintage snaps documenting the evolution of hip hop and the artists who shaped it on both coasts, featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes images of everyone from Biggie to Tupac to N.W.A., all accompanied by Brother Ernie's personal anecdotes and candid stories behind the images." -Inside Hook

"To capture history, you have to be present for it. Hip Hop at the End of the World: The Photography of Ernie Paniccioli (Rizzoli; $40) is filled with photos only Paniccioli has because, from the mid-1970s forward, only Paniccioli thought to be there - and was permitted in the room. (That's an underappreciated photographic skill: not getting kicked out.)" -NEW YORK TIMES
