Official book description:

Back in the Days

documents the emerging Hip-Hop scene from 1980-1989 before it became what is today's multimillion-dollar, multinational industry. Back in the Days, battles involved rappers, DJ's, dancers and painters, not gangsters and guns. Back in the days, the streets-not corporate planning- set the standards for style. Back in the days, Jamel Shabazz was on the scene, photographing everyday people hanging' in Harlem, kicking' it in Queens, and cold chilling' in Brooklyn. Street style with an attitude unmatched in fashion in the 30 years since, Shabazz's subjects strike poses that put supermodels to shame- showing off Kangol caps and Gazelle glasses, shell-top Adidas and suede Pumas with fat laces, shearling coats and leather jackets, gold rope chains, door-knocker earrings, name belts, boom boxes, and other finery. For anyone who wants to know what "keeping' it real" means, Back in the Days is the book of your dreams.
