HIP is a turtle who raps very slowly. HOP is a bunny who raps superfast. Together they are Hip & Hop, the coolest rap duo in Oldskool County.

This hilarious collection features two stories that remix the fable of the tortoise and the hare, combining comic book elements with short raps, traditional narration, and the coolest characters on the block.
