    1. A great anthology of a golden era in Philadelphia underground music and entertainment. Insightful and reflective interviews conducted by Damon that gave light to rappers, promoters and many more in an era that has long passed. A great way to relive the moments and renew your faith in urban music and entertainment.


    2. Loved it! Very insightful for those involved in the music industry; a real look from the inside, and well-written. I highly recommend this book and await the next.
