” Reading Is Fundamental “
Even though I spend a great amount of time reading non-Hip Hop related material, I still attempt to keep my library flooded with all types of Hip Hop treats for inspiration…
I plan on ordering two books this week….First up to bat is the new SCARFACE joint “Diary of a Madman: The Geto Boys, Life, Death, and the Roots of Southern Rap”….Like many of the BATTLEFIELD readers I haven’t agreed with his production choices since the mid-90’s, yet I still respect the work he put in as well as his uncompromising contributions to the art form..
Next up is the second installment of “CHECK THE TECHNIQUE 2 – Liner Notes For Hip Hop Junkies” by Brian Coleman..I would have been content with the excellent first volume, I could be wrong but it appears as if he topped his previous efforts with interviews from BLACK SHEEP, KOOL KEITH, ED O.G, etc..
I have to get that Scarface book..Have a look at Houston Rap by Peter Beste and The Dirty Version by Mickey Hess/Budda Monk (a biography of ODB’s life by a close friend), well worth puttin on ya shelf B
