Ed Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree Volume 1 has been a nonstop bestseller since it was released last fall, and we couldn’t be more excited about the second volume. In fact, we’re so crazy over-the-top excited that we’re gonna have a party for the book with Ed Piskor in attendance. And he won’t just be signing books! Before we settle down for drinks and comics, Ed and Reggie Ossé will sit down to talk hip hop, comics and whatever else tickles their fancy.
