Rapping into a hairbrush breakdancing on the kitchen floor carrying around the world’s smallest uietest ghetto blaster in 1980’s Britain long before the world has heard of Eminem how does an aspiring whi. I was sent a review copy of this through an online book groupI tend to read factual books about hip hop history as there aren t many that take a personal perspective on it DJ Semtex s Hip Hop Raised Me was a rare example of one with a personal touch but it was about the story and photos and less about the writing This book can be enjoyed even if you don t like hip hop it s just as much about the author s life 80 s and 90 s Britain heavy metal and pop and it s written with real humour some of it silly some of it bittersweet He s very hard on himself and he even reprints his worst lyrics but it builds up into a picture of a person who s really passionate about the music and wants to sum up what it meant to his generationI think he s succeeded I found some bits really touching especially the family drama and the footnotes were observant and full of good jokes I m hoping for books that tell stories about life in hip hop and would like to read some US ones too

Wiggaz With Attitude

Itself A new sound that changed the way we dance dress and talk it gave the author's generation a fresh perspective on the world This is their story told through one wannabe rapper's rise and fall Mostly fal.

    Some of my favourite autobiographies aren't afraid of choosing places to admit defeat rather than tout success Unlike the Alan Partridge autobiogaphy in which the author chooses to end an awful lot of his anecdotes with the phrase

    An interesting and addictive read for any hip hop fan As you follow the journey of the unsuccesful rap career it is apparent that Andrew Emery has an outstanding knowledge of the genre and the footnotes along the way make
