Thirsty for rap knowledge and history in book form? Interested in discovering how the mixtape went from a homemade project for the neighborhood to a jumping point for DJs careers? Our friends DJ Mars, Maurice Garland and Bril Ndiaye, along with Kickstarter, have partnered to present, The Art Behind The Tape, a coffee table tome focusing on the evolution of mixtape cover art.
