Hey, Billy Jam! So Looking forward to this interview! I'm interested to hear if there's some common theme that Brian Coleman found in interviewing these hip-hop pioneers?
And/or, what one thing (if possible) does Brian Coleman think he took away, or we should take away, from the book?

I enjoyed reading this review pitchfork.com...

Brian, cool stories from the actual interview sessions? Any one of them surprise you the most?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/21/14 7:07pm Studio B Ben:

One of the best classic Jazzy Jeff tracks out there. Hell yeah, Billy.
  Fri. 11/21/14 7:07pm BC:

Lots of surprises in each chapter to be honest. On the Company Flow front, Mr. Len had a heart attack at age 18, that was kind of ill. NJ represent!

Brian, What's your sign?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 11/21/14 7:09pm chris:

What's the deal with the killer book cover? Totally dig it.
  Fri. 11/21/14 7:09pm BC:

My sign: yield.
  Fri. 11/21/14 7:10pm BC:

Book cover by the amazing Romanowski, from the Bay. Amazing DJ and producer but his visual art is amazing. It's a custom piece he did for the book. Just saw him last week in San Fran. Look him up if you don't know!
  Fri. 11/21/14 7:12pm Nashville Noah:

Is it true that you're from Jersey and used to go to hardcore shows at City Gardens?
  Fri. 11/21/14 7:12pm BC:

Nashville Noah: it's true. Stop stalking me with your insider knowledge.

We LOVE BRIAN COLEMAN! Sending Del Taco love!

Holla Billy Jam.. the man..LOVED that Masta Ace freestyle!

There's a saying about how the first album is full of songs artists have dreamed about recording and have had all their lives to write. It makes first albums interesting, and may be a reason for the sophomore slump.
