Ego Trips "Book of Rap Lists" Review
I bought this book this weekend as a christmas gift to myself. I have a tendency to buy 1 gift for someone then 1 for myself. Anyway, This book is quite possibly the best "Hip-Hop" almanac ever printed. Ego Trip (the now defunct magazine) put together a this reference material in a very easily digestable format in a very tongue-in-cheeky manner. They are able to show their true sense of humor, remain informative, and keep their "Street credibilty" all in one stride. Anyway, what it boils down to, Every hip-hopper should own this book because of the important history documented in it (especially all you new jacks). I havent been able to put it down even though ive read all 326 pages twice already (and im dyslexic)....
you can buy on-line from Egotrip or Amazon dot Com ... the ISBN # is 0312242980 ...
well worth your 20 duckets ($15 @ amazon)....the offical author / title is "Ego Trip's Book of Rap Lists"
by Sacha Jenkins, Elliott Wilson, Chairman Mao, Gabriel Alvarez, Brent Rollins
So it’s the famous detroid, the writer who’s been published worldwide talking shit again. You sure do yap a lot for a guy who doesn’t post much more than snide replies to others. Your intellectual elitism is laughable. I guarantee you that there are comic book writers that put everything you have ever put to the page to shame. Ever heard of Alan Moore? And for the record, I don’t own any comics, but I respect the medium and can’t stand folks like you who speak on topics they don’t know shit about.
I’m sure “Ego Trips: Book of Rap Lists” is a work of literary majesty. Dumb fuck, it’s a book of lists. When you are ready to read big boy books, I’ll give you the list. Until then still your fingers on those keys, cause I’m sick of your pompous bullshit.
i read almost the whole thing at tower the other day... real good, i learned quite a bit. i think the clerks got mad though.
the pics of the biz markie doll were pretty funny, plus i got to see what RA the Ruggedman looked like. i also learned that outkast's "playa's ball" was originally a christmas song.
i also developed a new fear of Sbarro's restrooms...
did you see kool moe dee's (was it him?) rankings of current emcees? i thought that was interesting...
hey is that book online somewhere?? where can i download it? haha
its a great great book. im very surprised that you people can read however. i thought you were only up on like comic book words like "whap" and "bam"...im very proud of you people reading books. keep it up. i do notice how only three people responded to this, books arent hot with the kids these days huh? thats great for my book thats in the works, i'll have a house full of them shits.
