Massachusetts Hip-Hop Artists:

Promotional Materials and Press Articles

(1980s - present)

On this page, most of the images will speak for themselves, in part because they will be press releases and articles about the groups. This is a 360 degree view -- promotional materials sent out by groups and managers (press releases, photos, flyers) and the results that came from them.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

The Healy Library at UMass Boston houses the Massachusetts Hip-Hop Archive and has a ridiculously large collection of materials, including promotional items like those on this page AND dozens of hours of audio tapes, mostly from Magnus Johnstone's "Lecco's Lemma" radio show on WMBR 88.1 FM in the mid- / late-1980s.
