Breaking Atomz PUBLISHING HOUSE Book publishing opportunities for aspirant authors and creatives.


Breaking Atomz Publishing House (BAPH) is an independent dynamic publishing house, whose focus is on Hip hop culture literature (and magazines). Due to archaic requirements associated with traditional publishing, aspirant authors of literary works relating to Hip hop and Hip hop culture have often been rejected by traditional publishing houses with their proposals or manuscripts often labelled as not fitting publishing programmes or criteria.

In many ways, this has impacted on and has contributed to the slow growth of literature on South African Hip hop. Breaking Atomz seeks to break this cycle by offering and opening up publishing opportunities to aspirant authors who wish to publish books relating to Hip hop culture or any of its facets or founding Pillars/ elements (Djing; Mcing; B-Boying; Writing/ Graffiti; and Knowledge of Self). In its more than 30 years of existence South African Hip hop has grown from a regional Cape Flats subculture movement to influencing every facet of South African pop/ youth culture and commercial media nationwide. It only stands to reason that its presence should be visible in the literary realm too.

Our vision is to grow into being a reputable and go to publishing house for all things Hip hop culture & literature.
We strive to establish, grow and broaden book publishing opportunities for aspirant authors and creatives who wish to make exceptional and creative literary contributions to the rich, multi-layered, and complex Hip hop oral heritage. We are of the view that a vast presence of literature on South African Hip hop will, by implication, meaningfully contribute in shaping the identity of the culture & genre and (by extension) record & preserve its history.
