Kenny Dope - Wild Style Breakbeats, 7" Casebook
Kenny Dope Wild Style Breakbeats in 7" Casebook.
Kenny Dope and Get on Down collaborate to release the first Kay-Dee Book Series. Features seven 7” records, 28 pages of photos, and interviews with Charlie Ahearn, Fab 5 Freddy, Chrisstein, and Lenny Ferrari. Packaged in a collectible “Kay-Dee” casebook.
Kenny’s vision for Kay-Dee’s first book was to create a premium set with a mix of well-known and never-before-seen “Wild Style” photos, in addition to liner notes detailing the stories behind the music of one of his favorite films. Teaming up with GET ON DOWN, the record label and online boutique dedicated to presenting and celebrating music with unique packaging and exclusive extras, the two have come together to release this impressive and historically-significant musical trophy item:
The Wild Style Breakbeats
The book features the following elements:
