Overview

This book represents the Holy Grail of early hip hop journalism, written by the only professional journalist to travel to the South Bronx in the early 1980s to document the origins of the culture. For anyone interested in "first generation," this is the most authentic portrait of hip hop before commercialization took over. Sadly, the hard copy book was published before its time and never saw the distribution or sales it deserved. Copies of the original edition sell for as much as $500. This version contains new material not found in the original print edition.

Meet the Author

I started out writing black comedy, but I'm best known as the first reporter to document hip hop and the instigator of the film Beat Street. I also founded the Cannabis Cup, organized the first 420 ceremonies outside of Marin County, and launched the hemp movement with Jack Herer while writing some landmark conspiracy articles.
