This book is what they don't tell you about. The book talks about racism, rap and rebellion. All you would want to know but it is still written in a simple way that even teenagers could enjoy. I read this book twice already and I am going for a third. It will change your view of life. This is the perfect buy for anybody who claims to mildly like rap music and those who are experts alike. This could be the best money you ever spend.

A Seminal Work of pure brilliance . Chuck D is a mesmerising force of the old skool Rap movement when music was more about fighting for causes and not tweaking out parodies of cultural stereotypes . Packed with vibrant discursive topical insights into the motivation for rap the book is a fiery testament of society's obsession with tabloid crap . Whether you're on the A List or no list this book urges the need for communities to take the lead and change the status quo . Chuck says it best Fight the Power ! Raw, untamed super smart and charging with brilliance .

For anyone interested in getting into the mind of a man who for many, regardless of race or colour, has been an inspiration in music and ideology.
