Thumbs up

Just thought I'd bump this up top for all you SCIC hip-hoppers....

I'm reading this book right now I think you all'd probably enjoy. It's called "Bomb the Suburbs." It's really interesting, talks about the origin of hip-hop, coming from the break-dancing, b-boy, graffiti crowd. Basically says how Dre and all that gangster rap ish ruined rap as an art form and a political force.

He also rants about how the suburbs are evil. Makes a pretty good argument for it too....

Oh yeah, the author is William Upski Wimsatt. Check it out. I think you'll like it. It's a good bathroom read....

Cheers,
Grant
