MOME Publishing is proud to present the ground breaking, soon to be classic Hip Hop book, “Hip Hop Decoded,” written by an underground street writer, The Black Dot.

This masterpiece takes its readers from Hip Hop’s ancient origin to its modern day Matrix. Never before has a book been written about Hip Hop through the spiritual scope of the culture, or has examined the culture from a mystical perspective. The Black Dot cleverly accomplishes both, while providing plenty of fuel for conspiracy theorist. Hip Hop Decoded reveals that Hip Hop is far deeper than just beats and rhymes, and masterfully illustrates that each element of Hip Hop (Graffiti, DJ, Emcee, and B-Boy) has an ancient origin (hieroglyphics, drummer, oracle, and dancer), as well as spiritual significance (earth, air, fire, and water). Knowledge is the fifth and most sacred element of Hip Hop, however, the most misunderstood. The Black Dot has compiled the most comprehensive study of the subject in book form. Hip Hop Decoded is the red pill for those looking to escape from the Matrix of Hip Hop, and begin the journey to uncover the truth about the culture.

There have been many books written about Hip Hop from a political, social, economical, and even cultural perspective, but not many have uncovered the spiritual essence of Hip Hop. The Black Dot challenges the Hip Hop faithful to delve deep within its core to explore the most sacred aspect of the art form, and exposes the Matrix put in place to counter and destroy this spiritual energy.

The foreword to the book was written by Legend, and Live Rhyme Master, Grandmaster Caz, and the illustrations were drawn by the legendary Graffiti Writer, James Top. This promises to be the first of many books to come from The Black Dot that will continue to explore the deeper, darker, mystical side of Hip Hop.
