Most of the visuals that you see here on Potholes, including our Potholes Music album cover sand overall site design, are made possible by the great Theodore Taylor III. Today we celebrate the work of this talented young artist by spotlighting an incredibly exciting project he helped make happen. It is a children’s book written by Laban Carrick Hill on DJ Kool Herc and the birth of hip-hop. Theodore illustrated the entire hard cover book, and today we are excited to say that it is available for purchase. Titled When The Beat Was Born, this is more than just a book for kids, but a wonderfully illustrated piece of artwork that will sit beautifully on any hip-hop head’s coffee table.
