Jonathan Mannion Is Hip Hop's Photographer

I'm a pretty big fan of Hip Hop music and I have seen every one of the pictures in these two videos. What I didn't know was that they were all taken by a single person. Jonathan Mannion is extremely talented but he also seemed to be around in exactly the right time to shoot the faces of this growing genre of music.

Does anybody know the name of the song that runs from 1:16 to 1:56 in the first video?

@Jon-Mark, Jay Z - 99 problems

Are you serious Jon-Mark? That is the music from Jay-Z's "99 Problems" baby!! I love the these images and this time. The music, and the images. The same images I used to admire when I was uh "younger". If there is any other video or more info, please hook it up. Thanks boys!

@Noah -

Aloe Blacc - I need a dollar.

Hip hop has been a huge part of my life. I have always followed the work of Glenn E. Friedman and his work with early hip hop, but it looks like this guy picked up where Glenn left off. Amazing videos. Thanks so much for sharing!
