Moon Lane in association with Nicci Cheek Presents HipHop Love Books

From Jurassic 5’s legendary baritone rapper Chali 2na and Dilated People‘s Rakaa Iriscience, to members of the Grammy-Award winning Ozomatli, to worldwide superstar DJs Cut Chemist and Krafty Kuts… we bring you weekday storytime sessions for 0 – 5 yr olds (and mums and dads) on our new YouTube channel

Nicci Cheeks, in her younger days, was a London bgirl, DJ, radio host, A&R, record producer and artist manager. Nicci had the honour to work with and represent some of the world’s most cutting edge artists in hip hop between 1996 and 2006. Nicci recently became ‘Business Manager and Children’s Bookseller’ at the newest of the multi award-winning Moon Lane Children’s Books & Toys shops in Ramsgate and is bringing these two much-loved worlds together to boost morale and spread the joy of reading to children around the world during the Coronavirus pandemic.

We have collaborated with illustrator Derick Brooks who  Nicci discovered with the help of the British ‘Look Up!’ illustrator Dapo Adeola. Derick is a cartoonist from Richmond Virginia working in comics literary publishing and animation. He loves to create adventure fantasy, soft sci fi, and slice of life stories about people of color. He’s currently illustrating the book series Bright Family (Epic!) and in production of his first graphic novel Grip Up! (Iron Circus Comics) coming in 2022. https://www.derickbrooks.com
