Adler Hip Hop Archive Materials

The historical artifacts presented in this digital collection are selected from the Adler Hip Hop Archive. Compiled by Bill Adler, a noted journalist and founding VP of Publicity at Def Jam Recordings, the Adler archive contains thousands of newspaper and magazine articles, recording industry press releases and artist bios, correspondence, photographs, posters, flyers, advertising, and other documents. These materials offer an unprecedented view into Hip Hop’s history and are made available here for study and research. The Adler Hip Hop Archive is part of the Cornell University Hip Hop Collection. The materials digitized so far represent about 5 percent of the Adler Hip Hop Archive, all of which is physically accessible to researchers on Cornell’s Ithaca, N.Y. campus. Detailed information on the entirety of the collection can be found in the finding aid. Over the next few years, Cornell University Library will digitize the remainder of the Adler Archive, creating an increasingly deep and wide digital resource on Hip Hop’s history. Questions or comments can be sent to hiphopcollection@cornell.edu.
