Children's Literature - Enid Portnoy
The series “Superstars of Hip-Hop” boasts many outstanding Hip-Hop performers. Read to learn Hip-Hop vocabulary and meet a talented musician from Florida named (originally) Tramar Dillard. What he loved to do was rap and he began to make his dream come true. Check out his discography, timeline, and other information sources included at the end of the book. He loved to spend his time making mixed tapes in his garage of his Florida home. As early as ninth grade he was rapping with a popular group. Read about his time in Los Angeles where he met a lot of professionals who helped his career grow. Find out how he turned down some offers in order to go to college in order to understand more about the profession he dreamed of entering. From Miami to Atlanta he began to discover supporters and listeners who urged him on. Photographs of big name musicians and celebrities are included. When Atlantic Records signed him his single “Low” became a big hit. Readers will appreciate the easy writing style Earl displays in this short biography. The book is well organized and has interesting photographs of Rida as well as old and new friends. Earl has also included Flo Rida’s discography plus information about media sources for readers to search for further information. Rida’s reputation has spread throughout the world thanks to his recordings and personal appearances. He is an attractive and strikingly strong- looking figure who has many albums young readers will want to begin to look for, and listen to. Reviewer: Enid Portnoy; Ages 12 up.
