New York State of Mind 1.0 is three exclusive interviews, and 166 links to singles, videos, interviews and tales.
A fascinating genuine narrative formed in the crucible of Golden Age Hip-Hop mindfulness.
New York State of Mind 1.0, the 7th book in the series, provides you with a real flavour of the personalities, in all their raw forms, who breathed life into the streets of the city, taking the music to new heights and in entirely new directions.
Tragedy Khadafi is as real as it gets. Through impressive MC skills and a formidable street reputation, he lived the life of a real hoodlum, surviving gunshot wounds, stabbings and broken bones. The strong lyrical message of Brand Nubian reflects on the group's identity as Five-Percenters and the philosophy of the Nation of Gods and Earth, while Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth arrived on the scene in the midst of a Hip-Hop impasse of sorts.
New York State of Mind 1.0 is a candid look deep inside the psyche of each and an examination of what makes them tick. Take a ride alongside them and learn how they made their mark in a generation.
