Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Examine the society-altering collision between black youth culture and mass media into big business. A finalist for the National Book Critics Award in Criticism.

Review:
"George writes with the ardor of a longtime hip-hop fan (and close associate of many of the people who played a formative role in its development) and the analytic detachment of a critic, and his book is animated by a passion for the music and frustration with its often insular point of view."

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 12/04/1998

Review:
"As in his previous works of nonfiction, George's voice is assured, accessible and knowledgeable. His connection with hip-hop from its infancy has provided him with access to many of its most notable icons; he and Russell Simmons, hip-hop mogul and co-founder of Def Jam Records, have been friends for twenty years. While such closeness gives him invaluable perspective on the inner workings of the industry, some readers may find that George is too personally engaged with his subject."

Mark Anthony Neal, Washington Post Book World, 1/10/1999
