    Comments:  | Leave A Comment

    Cey Adams created some of hip-hop’s most memorable album covers as the art director for Def Jam Recordings in the late 1980s and 1990s.

    Now Adams and former Def Jam publicist Bill Adler have created a book, DEFinition: The Art and Design of Hip-Hop (Collins Design) that champions the impact of hip-hop-inspired design on music, fashion, advertising, and more.

    GIANT Magazine gives you an exclusive, six-part online look inside the creation of this book, with narration from author Bill Adler and cameos from artists like Ice-T and Run (of Run-D.M.C.).
