Sacha Jenkins-much like rap great KRS One-is hip hip. Sachy-Sach, his sister Dominiqe, and their artistically inclined, Haitian-born mom-dukes, Monart, moved to Astoria, Queens, NY from Silver Springs, MD in the summer of 1977.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Real This book is all you need to know about the history of artists and the art itself. The obscure topics and entertaining content are well worth the price. Everything from number one chart toppers,to rappers who have survived shootings,to wax wars,to atheletes who can't rock the mic. This is not your typical book with a topic. It litterally is a book of lists,(which is a bonus if you have no attention span like me)that you can pick up and put down anytime(though it is a hard to put down). If you have any interest in the culture,the politics or the hype overall, you'll love this great breakdown of a culture that will never die.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 2nd best book about Hip Hop ever After Hip Hop America by Nelson George, this is perhaps the finest addition to Rap's (slim) library. In a genre short on history, it fills in the gaps that would otherwise be forgotten and exposes the truth lurking underneath all the hype. Plus, it tells us who has the worst teeth in Hip Hop, which is worth EVERY PENNY.
