About the Author

Nelson George, supervising producer and writer for the Netflix series "The Get Down," is an award-winning author of both fiction and nonfiction. He has written for Playboy, Billboard, Esquire, the Village Voice, Essence, and many other national magazines, as well as writing and producing television programs and feature films.


If there's anyone qualified to write a solid and entertaining tome on the culture, politics, and business of hip-hop, it's George, who started covering rap in the early 1970s. He not only chronicles the scene's nascent years but also the story of rap as an art form and a cultural and economic force through today. (LJ 9/15/98) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Clear-headed and objective... an immensely readable survey of rap and its wide cultural impact. ("Philadelphia Inquirer")
