I was anxiously awaiting The Hater's book. In fact, I had pre-ordered "Raise your own F'n Kids", but apparently it never saw the light of day [or was replaced with 'Objective Hate'] after the DJ Envy circus, which, by the way, I thought was a brilliant, gangster, 1st amendment move by Star.

In either case, I was looking forward to learning more about the philosophy that helped open my third eye as I drove to work each morning.

The book is an enjoyable, breezy read that manages to be sharp, intelligent, even gritty at times. He sprinkled in street vernacular, but at some points it was truly unneccessary and can sometimes detract from the brilliance of the writer.

The prequel was autobiographical in nature, yet suprisingly succinct in that regard. He briefly explains the various periods and influentual people in his life and quickly moves on. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A HIP HOP TELL ALL THIS IS NOT THE BOOK FOR YOU!!!

The one thing that surprised and impressed me about Star's story are the periods of self reflection. In my journey, I have found myself revisiting and analyzing my past & I always thought I was going backward emotionally. But I realize now that it is an essential part of "knowledge of self".

While I appreciated knowing his backstory, I wanted to learn more about Objective Hate. It was just starting to get good, focusing on the philosophy, and I was on the last page.

And just like an appetizer, it whet my appetite. It filled me up, but not enough to make me push the dinner plate away. It evened opened my palatte to taste new things. Looking forward to learning more about Objective Hate!!
