Yes Yes Y'all : The Experience Music Project Oral History Of Hip-Hop The First Decade based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Don't know how this book came on the shelves of my parisian bookstore but miracles happen sometimes. Either you know all the story or you're just beginning to read about hip hop culture, this book is a 'must have'. You feel just like you're living the story along with Kool Herc, Bambaata, Flash... You don't even have to speak english because the pictures are just amazing (dancers, flyers,...). Thousands of 'Merci' to the authors and hip hop pionneers. If someone can advise me some more brilliant books about hip hop or any other black music (jazz, blues, soul...) please feel free to do so.
If you want to kown the early days. This is the book for you. Before DMC and even before Rapper Delight. There was KOOL DJ HERC, Bambaataa and the Zulu Nation and so many others who made this culture what is... now it's world wide.
I WAS VERY HAPPY TO SEE THE PHOTOS OF MY FRIEND D.J.BREAKOUT. WAS EVEN MORE SUPRIZED TO SEE MY FLYER. THE BOOK IS DEFINETLY A COLLECTORS ITEM FOR ALL INSPIRED BY HIPHOP
I couldn't put this book down. The personal accounts you get out of this book are priceless. I always knew the names (Herc,Flash,Bambatta,Cold Crush etc.) and to an extent the legend; but the stories and pictures you get in this book are amazing. If you love hip you have to buy this book. I loved it.
