HIP HOP HAIR is a poetic parade of rhythm and rhyme. Partnered with dynamic colors and images that speak to generations of creatives, this book offers a fresh look at Hip Hop. The elements of Hip Hop and the styles that accompany it (especially the hair styles that helped to define it) are many. Emceeing, deejaying, breakin’, graffiti, and beatboxing are on display like never-seen-before with the hairstyles to match. The vivid illustrations and unique artistry present the messages of self-awareness and self-acceptance to the hearts and minds of readers. Hip Hop is diverse and so are the HIP HOP HAIR styles we all know and love!
Written by JFAM Johnson™ (a collective of 8 siblings), HIP HOP HAIR highlights the rhyme, rhythm, and respect of the history and culture of Hip Hop.

Each illustration is a vibrant display of Black and Brown American boys and girls in uplifting and true-to-life settings. With imaginative end rhymes and repetitive melodies, you’ll be chanting, “I’m HIP, I’m HOP,” before you’ve made it half-way through the book. HIP HOP HAIR is an interactive immersion boasting fun facts, resources, and a bonus website so you can have a truly hip-hop experience!
