Coffee Talk: Photographer Mike Schreiber Takes Us Through His New Book "True Hip-Hop"

“This was also down in New Orleans, and this shot was taken on one of the blocks Pimp C used to do his thing on. This was after Hurricane Katrina and the photo editor I was working with wanted me to shoot him in front of the broken-down buildings. When I mentioned it to Pimp C, he said we couldn’t do that because a lot of these houses may look abandoned but they weren’t. He said that the people inside don’t ask questions, they just come out blazing. I like that picture though. I like the words.”
