''This book marks the time where our modern literature changes from entertainment to education. A study guide for our next generation using the modern day struggle into manhood and beyond.'' --- M-1, from dead prez
''This is one of the most profound, searching, and insightful studies of what happens to the identities and worldviews of high school students who are exposed to a hip-hop curriculum. With Beats, Rhymes, and Classroom Life, Hill establishes himself as one of the most gifted young interpreters of hip-hop culture and educational experience in the nation.'' --Michael Eric Dyson, author of Can You Hear Me Now?
