    1. It took me forever to get a copy of this book but the wait was worth it While reading I would often play the albums explored and remember the times when I first heard them Having read Check The Technique first, I knew what to expect from a structure and writing perspective What makes the book is the classic subject matter Some of the writing leaves you wanting but it is an important book, especially when you consider where hip hop is today It feels stagnant and same.

    2. I enjoyed this book a lot Great oral history on some seminal rap albums that should be required reading for those who want to learn the history on these albums.

    3. I read Check the Technique first, but had to get this book if not for the sole purpose of reading about the Ultramagnetic MCs Critical Beatdown why did he leave that out of the reissue Though the normal format of background info then track by track breakdown is insightful, the two longer biography style narratives of Beatdown and BDP s Criminal Minded are where I learned the most I really appreciate Coleman inserting a lot of Kool Keith s lyrics in his section to read over outside of music would [...]

    4. This is a fantasic book about early hip hop I especially liked the bit on Pubic Enemy Very informative Apparently there is a new edition of this out with even information and artists profiled Great.

    5. First self published book by Brian Coleman It is the original book about the origins of many of the most classic hip hop albums ever He later published Check The Technique which expanded this edition
