A tie with Please Kill Me as one of the most important books written about 20th century music Completely engaging, relevant, and well written, in the same oral tradition of Please Kill Me If you don t read this book and love it, you re a fucking moron. I read this for a book club Nobody else could make it all the way through Perhaps my tolerance is higher than most because I love burgeoning revolutions, and this was certainly one Plus, great early visual artifacts. A coffee table book that is well worth the full read, a fascinating first hand journey through hip hop s birth. always a fan of oral history i d give this book higher marks if i actually liked hip hop. This is the straight dope about the early days of hip hop from the people that were there Reminiscent of jazz oral histories, though with considerably street crime. On the whole enjoyable history of the first ten years of hip hop Hearing directly from all of the principals was great, it is easy to forget how young everyone was when this was popping off in the 70 s The focus on the soundsystem culture as the foundation and it s ultimate demise at the hands of it s own success in records and disco clubs in Manhattan was very interesting.I think Piskor s Hip Hop Family Tree graphic novels are actually a accessible and fun way to read these same histories, but the written word gives depth and breadth than you can squeeze in a graphic novel format Last thing, I would have bumped it up to four stars, except for the really distracting formatting of the book It has too many pages with hella small typography and too similar coloration of the prose and background page color it makes for frustrating reading in less than perfect daylight The pictures are wonderful, the captioning is illegible The publisher f d this up for everyone authors get a pass.
