The definitive introduction to the history of rap and a guide to the best recordings available. Here you will learn about the importance of Public Enemy, the meaning of KRS-One's name, MC Hammer's place in the rap universe, the story of Salt-n-Pepa's discovery (as telephone operators at Sears!), the rise of gangsta rap, which of LL Cool J's records is absolutely essential to own, and much more. Written in a hip-hop gonzo style by two who grew up with da noize, this is the one essential insider's guide to the boldest new music to storm the gates of pop in decades.
