    • What would be a great reference about the timeline of watershed events and albums in rap history doesn't quite work as a linear book. I listened to it on Audible, and at first it's a pretty amazing series of massive events in rap history, and up until about 1996 I was loving it, because it put all my favorite albums in context with one another.But as it gets into the late 1990s and early 2000s, the list, like rap itself, becomes tedious. To be honest, I can't really get amped for anything regard [...]


    • A Great Guide to Hip-Hop Very informative history of Hip-Hop for an old school fan like me but also an essential chapter in Black culture for those who love Hip-Hop today. While I am not a fan of most of the hip-hop that came out after 2000 I support the art if it still can be used to awaken the social conscience of our society. Chuck D will always be a hero to me along with KRS1.


    • This is great. It's not the type of book that you read from cover to cover, but it's sufficiently detailed and doesn't editorialize. It goes back to DJ Kool Herc and is very inclusive. One thing I love about it is the art. The inclusion of the art really makes this book great and worth owning. Obviously, you would have to be into rap/hip-hop to enjoy it. My only complaint is that I wish it was cross-referenced a little better, but admittedly, that will take a lot more time.

Interspersed in the chronology are notes from Chuck D. relating his personal experience with or insightful commentary on an artist or event. The information on production collaborations, contract disputes, and personal rivalries were an i [...]


    • It's very informative and I'm checking out a lot of music that I hadn't heard before but I wish that there were more anecdotes about the people because that's the most interesting part.


    • This brought back good memories and reintroduced music that I enjoyed in the past. It's encyclopedia style, so one can choose to read what interests them.
