Back In the Days

Jamel Shabazz

StickyVinyll would like to pay homage and the up most respect to Jamel Shabazz; Photographer and educator. Jamel Shabazz is noted to have documented some of the highlights of “Urban Life” over the course of 30 years. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Shabazz made a point to capture New York at it’s prime time; including the crack era – which although rough, was a true inner beautiful representation and expression of the Urban lifestyle through struggle.

The photos below are featured in Shabazz’s book, “Back in the Days”, which captures the beginning of the hip hop culture between 1980 – 1989.
