About the Author
Dr. Daudi Abe has been in the field of teaching for twenty years working with all levels from preschool to grad school. He completed his undergraduate studies at Santa Clara University, hosting one of the first college rap radio shows on the west coast at station KSCU between 1988 and 1992, and earned a doctorate in education from the University of Washington. In addition, he has written articles on the increasing use of hip-hop as an educational platform in academic journals and newspaper op-ed pages. Dr. Abe has also participated in panels, facilitated workshops and spoken at conferences around the country on various aspects of hip-hop music and culture. Since 1998, Dr. Abe has taught college level courses on hip-hop music and culture within multiple modalities including in person, online and hybrid formats. He has also taught versions of these courses to high school students and worked with middle school students on media literacy and critical analysis skills. He currently lives in Seattle with his son Dana and daughter Leila.

For those of us who are familiar with the music of that era (and even those who don't!), it is fascinating to see how Dr. Abe illustrates the tremendous influence that a handful of artists had in transforming society into what it is today.
I would highly recommend this book. The book moves briskly, and is always entertaining. Moreover, it is one of the most informative reads I've enjoyed this year. Who knew that Eazy-E still had lessons to teach 20 years after his death?
