Thought to have started back in August 1973 in the Bronx, hip hop has gone through many evolutions over the years, from artists such as Grandmaster Flash, Queen Latifah, and Nelly. The Library can help you explore hip-hop playlist through CDs, streaming apps Freegal+ and hoopla, and one aptly named graphic nonfiction.
