The powerful pictorial features images of some of the artist's most iconic collaborators including hip-hop icons Missy Elliot, Kanye West, Jay Z and the late Lisa Left Eye Lopez among others.
Hype Williams is known for his signature editorial style, selling hip-hop culture as a lifestyle and always outdoing himself in the process of his work. These stunning photographs include artist shoots and video stills of hip-hop heavy-weights, each telling a different story and exuding a strong sense of presence and mood.
From highly conceptual and avant-garde photos staring a body-painted Kelis to a subtly elegant black and white shot of the late Aaliyah, The History of Hype editorial pays homage to the man that changed hip-hop media.
