Mike Miller’s Photography Captures ’90s Hip-Hop And Lowrider Culture To The Fullest


With a first edition print run already dwindling down to below 100 copies left, this might make a great, and perhaps rare gift for the holidays: Photographer Michael Miller’s West Coast Hip-Hop: A History In Pictures is a 200-page 9″ x 12″ coffee table book that collects Miller’s images of many of hip-hop’s most important artists (e.g. Tupac Shakur, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, Snoop Dogg, Too $hort etc.) in their ’90s prime.

After launching his career in fashion, Los Angeles-native Miller photographed his first hip-hop artist, Arabian Prince, in the late ’80s. His work on a Stussy campaign won the admiration of DJ Muggs, who asked Miller to shoot his new group, Cypress Hill. And the rest, as they say, is history. Featuring the stories behind the photos from Miller himself as well as a foreword by Paul “DJ P” Stewart – former Pharcyde manager, A&R wizard, and all around West Coast hip-hop man in the mix – it’s an essential Westside document.
