?Rap Attack is "down by law" for understanding the roots of rappers in America - past, present and future
Gary Byrd, DJ ?David Toop rolls away the stones to uncover a hidden world of B Boys, Hip Hoppers and Planet Rockers, where time is caught in a frantic loop, and where taste is a matter of "if it fits, use it"? Charlie Gillett ?Records the vertiginously metamorphic nature of Afro-American culture (Village Voice)
Rap Attack will not only put you in touch with the most innovative music of the last decade but will also give you a fair insight into the creative input of the Black American for the last century and more, and then tie it up neatly with a comprehensible bow at the end - most rewarding (The Wire)
