The Rap Year Book - Shea Serrano

It’s really hard to describe a book as a “must read.” No matter how good a book is, chances are you can get by without reading. Not this book. If you are a rap fan of any level, a green newcomer or a seasoned vet, you need to read this book. While you won’t get a complete education in rap history per se (only one Outkast song included here, come on) there is more than enough to hang your hat on. To cap it all off is Serrano’s sense of humor and writing style, which is perfectly suited for Twitter but also, as it turns out, translates just fine to the physical page. This is one of my favorite books of 2015…as Shea himself would say, “FOH all other rap books.”
