With a sales growth of 51 percent from 1995 to 1998, hip-hop has become our nation's fastest growing listening preference: 62 million rap albums were sold in 1997 alone. "Move the Crowd" celebrates this meteoric success, chronicling rap's Golden Age -- the '80s and early '90s, when the music grew from an inner city phenomenon to a primary force of youth culture. The book captures this unique era through hundreds of thought-provoking quotations from the artists themselves, and alongside their powerful words, newspaper headlines and brief excerpts from other media evoke the political and cultural climate that in many ways fueled the rise of hip-hop. With its stunning graphic design and previously unpublished black-and-white photographic portraits, "Move the Crowd" is sure to captivate all music lovers.
