Description

This is the story of Ronald "Riskie" Brent, a man who rose from the fabled streets of Compton to the hallowed halls of Death Row Records, the most celebrated rap music label of its time. Riskie Forever - From the Streets to the Industry - My Life and Art on Death Row Records reveals Riskie's struggle to develop as an artist and his ultimate triumph as the painter behind some of Hip Hop's most iconic images.This book is a time capsule of one of the most important eras in American popular music. Within its pages are the stories behind the artwork of 2Pac's All Eyez On Me and Makaveli's The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory, Snoop Dogg's Tha Doggfather, Nate Dogg's G Funk Classics Vol. 1 & 2, and many more albums blessed by Riskie's artistry over the past two decades.

The pages are covered with Riskie's sketches, drawings, paintings, and photographs, many of which have never before been seen by the general public.Riskie Forever, available in a 246-page full-color large format hardcover or ebook edition, is itself a work of art. Riskie worked for months writing the text, designed the book's cover, compiled his life's work, and arranged the best of his designs throughout. It is not just Riskie's story either. Leila Steinberg, who discovered 2Pac, provides a thoughtful introduction and many people whose lives Riskie has touched, including members of the Outlawz, wrote tributes to Riskie for the book.

The publication of this newly expanded edition of Riskie Forever is the culmination of a long journey - one any fan of Hip Hop music and art will want to explore with Riskie.
