I’m wondering if anyone can help me with finding a book. I bought it around 2003. It was a yellow book about hip hop, it was yellow I think. It delved into mcing, breakdancing and grafitti. It was like a manifesto. I loved that book but lost it and can’t remember the name. Thanks

Just stumbled across this dude’s reaction channel.
Don’t be put off by what you’re expecting him to be like.

His first listen to a Jehst track - “I’m about to have a fucking stroke!”

Yeah I did the same last night - subbed etc too.
His enthusiasm is infectious.

Listening to Take it Personal podcast* and came across this. The DJ means well but looks like a total spazz. The concept and production is overall pretty dope for a rap fan like myself.

Also this West Coast Funk infused track is pretty good. I nebver really liked West Coast stuff but it’s a nice change.

  • The last episode is full of dope contemporary rap music which gives hope for those who think everything today sucks.

The trouble is, there are a hundred others just like him all using the same lingo and intros. I kinda like watching reactions though, especially when people get emotional about music I love too.
"What’s going on… " “It’s your boy” “back once again” “with that said” “without any further a do”
And this is even before I have clicked on your link. I bet he says at least 2 or 3.

Edit: BOOM, he dropped many. He’s a loveable caricature though.

hearing Ced-Gee wanted to sample Prince’s BatDance for this track killed me.

I quite like the look of that Biggie crown but $20,000 for virtual wine tasting with Big Daddy Kane seems a bit steep
