Never mind football cards, how about trading Legends Of Rap collectors cards?
It’s an illustrated history of hip hop by Florian Braun, ignoring all the new faces of rap, keeping it very much old school. The 32 full-colour illustrated cards include portraits, biographical stories and selected discographical data of each featured artist. There’s also a fold-out poster of Grand Mixer D.S.T. and an extra card showing all the artists.
Which artists? Well there’s…Kool Moe Dee, Melle Mel, Whodini, Busy Bee, Kool DJ Red Alert (is the great man), Fab 5 Freddy, The Treacherous Three, Kool DJ Herc, Doug E Fresh, Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, Double Trouble, Fantastic 5, LL Cool J, Roxanne Shante, Grand Wizard Theodore, Afrika Bambaataa, Crash Crew, Kurtis Blow, Bobby Robinson, The Beastie Boys, Cold Crush Brothers, The Sugar Hill Gang, The Sequence, The Fearless Four, Funky Four Plus One, The Fat Boys, Run DMC, Spoonie G, DJ Hollywood, Rick Rubin + Russell Simmons and Sylvia Robinson.
