A tribute to the number 38 of the Source magazine from November 1992 featuring Dr. Dre on the cover.
The good old days running to the magazine store to check if the new Source had arrived already.
When buying it getting home as soon as possible to read it from A to Z not forgetting all the ads to find possible news hip hop albums that I didn’t have yet. Those were the days…
The Source is a United States–based monthly full-color magazine covering hip-hop music, politics, and culture, founded in 1988. It is the world’s longest running rap periodical, being founded as a newsletter in 1988.
I bought my first official hip hop items back in the late 80’s and ended up with a room filled of classic hip hop. Some years ago my girlfriend, now wife, proposed me to come out with my collection and share it with the world. So I did and hiphopcollector.com was born.
I will randomly take albums and items from my collection and post it on my website hoping that it brings memories to you guys as well as lots of fantastic hip hop has been produced since the Bronx gave birth to the hip hop movement…
All items featured in the movie are taken from my personal hip hop collection. In the late eighties on a local schoolyard in Antwerp, Belgium, a hip hop cassette was swapped between friends. It would change my life forever with a personal collection of over 11.000 hip hop tapes, cd’s, LP’s & memorabilia!!
With collecting all this hip hop I try to preserve the culture and pay respect to the pioneers who really deserve it.
On my hiphopcollector.com platform I do not only give credit to the pioneers, but I also want to provide a nice mix of classic with ‘quality hip hop’ which is still out there when you look for it. There are lots of great nowadays artists out there who don’t get the credit and promo.
