The Big Payback- Dan Charnas
Dan Charnas tells the story of hip-hop with honesty and breath that is nearly non existent in his age of high tech. He details the relationships, the subculture and the historical worthiness of music’s key genre. No writer in recent times has written an in depth expose without the need for a “payback”. It’s a must read for any fan of music.

Hill Harper is deeply reflective and honest. The author’s ability to discuss his own faults regarding relationships with raw and unflinching candor is impressive. His sincerity should move readers to hold up the mirror, evaluate the health of their own relationships, or assess why they may be unsuccessful in establishing new relationships. Readers seeking inspiration might also enjoy the quotes from other notable celebrities at the beginning of each chapter in this book.
