Coming from a person who has watched (and listened) to the culture grow, it was fascinating to hear how all the little bits and pieces that I picked up over the years were related one way or another. Having grown up in New York during the period that most of the book takes place, it explains HOW events in Hip Hop came to be.
This book covers ALOT of players in the industry. It is hard to pick a favorite. I did find Rick Rubin's story to be very interesting.
His voice and style were perfect for this story. His normal speech is comfortable to listen to and he also sprinkles in authentic slang when appropriate. You get the feeling that Kevin is familiar with the events in the book by the way he reads. On a funny note, he pronounces the rapper's name Treach as Treech. Based on Kevin's reading of this book I have searched for other books that he has done.
Yes. Hearing the story of what happened to DJ Scott La Rock. Being a fan it was common knowledge back then what happened to him but I did not know the particulars.
Great book. Great performance. If you were of music listening age in the late 70's and are a fan you will gain great insight as to how each little progression came to be. And for all fans of Hip Hop, you will get accurate information on what occured to bring this music to the dominance it now enjoys.
Yes because it is very informative and will change the way you think about money.
