    The Hip Hop Cop and His Hip Hop Ego

    When I first picked up the book and read the book cover summary, I was interested, but 10 pages into it, Parker reminded me about 20+ times that he was the 'hip hop cop'. OK, I get it - you are the hip hop cop....only you on the NYPD knew about hip hop, you heard it before you became the hip hop cop. You hung out with the hip hop stars because you were the hip hop cop. Because Parker was the hip hop cop, he knew how to investigate hip hop crimes. See a theme developing in my comments....it is reflective of his writing. I've read about a dozen or so cop books and they can tell a great story - as long as they focus more on the story and not the story teller.....even the hip hop story teller.....

    The Sunning Rocks

    At one end of the territory are the sunning rocks. Here, cats can rest in the bright sunlight. It is also a hreat place for catching prey, as it seems they enjoy restining in the sunlight too!<br>

    Very Interesting

    This book was about the deaths of Tupac, Jay Master Jay, and Biggie Smalls. It's told in a detectives's point of view and it really makes you think how others viewed each situation and all of their deaths. There was a lot of conflict between Tupac and Biggie before they died and a lot of conflict between Tupac's people and Biggie after Tupac died. There was a big conflict between the east coast and the west coast and you'll get an inside look of what really happened.

    This is a great book

    for anybody who wants to learn about the relationship between hip hop artists and the police, and it tells of the genesis of hip hop being taken seriously by the police as the nation's premier popular entertainment. It details many of the famous crimes that involve hip hop artists and tells of many things that aren't common knowledge. He also tells a good story about his own upcoming in the nypd, which is interesting enough without the hip hop angle. it's doubly entertaining for this reason.
