‘Whoop Whoop’ … you know the rest!

I didn’t know this until I saw it on Slamxhype but a little while back in Autumn KRS ONE has launched his his first book called ‘The Gospel of Hip Hop: First Instrument‘, which is the first book from the ‘I Am Hip Hop’ imprint. It’s a  philosophical masterwork of KRS ONE and written in the format of a self-help book and visual style in a holy book that I am sure many Hip-Hop heads will see it as. The publisher PowerHouse and say that its ‘opus is a spiritual manual for citizens of Hip Hop Kulture that combines classic philosophy with faith and practical knowledge, for a fascinating, in-depth exploration of Hip Hop as a life path.’

Ultimately the book covers some of his life story but also details the history in creation and development of Hip-Hop culture, what it means, and the true philosophy for hip hops future by stating its true fundamentals. I think I might pick up a copy to find more ammunition for real hip hop none of that Hip-Pop shit.

I love your comments, please leave me one ...
