NYCC Panel Recap: “Hip-Hop And Comics: Cultures Combining”
I found this dope interview while scouring the internet at work. It combines two of my biggest passions, comics and hip hop. Check it out y’all they get quotes from DMC, Jean Grae and Illus just to name a few and they speak about how comics influence their lives and rhymes.
Ever since Afrika Bambaataa named graffiti as one of its “four pillars,” hip-hop has been tied to visual expression. But hip-hop’s influence on comics (and vice versa) isn’t only about cool graphics.
Moderator Patrick Reed assembled an all-star group of hip-hop legends, as well as comics writers and artists, at New York Comic Con for a tour-de-force exploration of the connections between the two art forms.
The panelists included Adam “Illus” Wallenta, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Eric Orr, Jean Grae, Johnny “Juice” Rosado, Kagan McLeod, Pete Rock, Ron Wilson and Ronald Wimberly.
