The coffee table book "Rapper's Deluxe: How Hip Hop Made The World" presents the visual and cultural history of hip hop. The book charts hip hop's meteoric rise from underground pioneer to global tastemaker.

To tell the story of contemporary American culture is to tell the story of hip hop. From its humble, underground origins, hip hop transcended the boundaries of rap music and spread its influence across a broad spectrum of American life - fashion, film, art, sports, politics, language - to become a cultural movement of great influence.

Rapper's Deluxe is a critical contribution to America's cultural canon that sheds light on hip-hop's ability to redefine and influence culture, through: photographs; fine art; advertisements; book, magazine and album covers; film stills; and more. Arranged chronologically from the 1970s to the present, the image-rich and dynamic layouts show the people, places, events, objects, outfits and inspirations that have redefined the world as we know it - from fans in fur coats lining up for a Muhammad Ali fight at Madison Square Garden to a legendary party in the "Boogie Down" Bronx, through the slums of South Los Angeles and the stairwells of Atlanta to the extravagant red carpet looks of the Met Gala.

Using a wide range of curated examples, Dr. Todd Boyd re-examines hip-hop's legacy and how the genre remixes "high" and "low" culture from past and present to create a style all its own. Filled with original insights and clever wordplay, Rapper's Deluxe is a story of transformation, tracing hip-hop's arduous but always triumphant journey.
