I’ve mentioned this before but after putting down the Malcolm X photo book yesterday, this one found its way into my hands. If you’re a real hip-hop junkie, then this book needs to be purchased by you (or your mom) ASAP. We could all make arguments about what should have been included in this first round (Illmatic, Word…Life, Ready to Die, The Chronic, OB4CL, Death Certificate, etc.) and at first I was a little grumpy about that. But I realized that the author must be including those and many others in the second round. Let me say this again. BUY.THIS.BOOK. I’ve read it at least three times now and I’m still not bored with it.
