This tour book commemorates the Cut Chemist & DJ Shadow Renegades Of Rhythm tour. Renegades Of Rhythm is national tour featuring DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist playing Afrika Bambaataa's record collection as a tribute to the original architect of hip hop. DJ Shadow says, “They’re his records, with his blessings. This isn’t just ANY copy of ‘X’ breakbeat, it’s THE copy, THE copy that started everything.”
The book features full color reproductions of numerous original records, flyers, photos, drawings, test pressings, and acetates from Afrika Bambaataa’s archive. Alongside rarely seen images are exclusive texts by DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, and Afrika Bambaataa detailing the history of the Zulu Nation, hip hop, and DJ culture, as well as lists of Bambaataa’s favorite breaks.
