Book just came out on the 28th.Authors Michael Eric Dyson and Sohail Daulatzai.

Heres the description

The best and brightest writers of the hip-hop generation reflect upon the era's landmark album: Nas's Illmatic.
From the moment then nineteen-year-old Nasir "Nas" Jones began recording tracks for his debut album the hip-hop world was forever changed. Released in 1994, Illmatic, was hailed as a masterpiece and is one of the most influentialalbums in hip-hop history. In Born to Use Mics, Michael Eric Dyson and Sohail Daulatzai have brought together the brightest minds to reflect upon and engage one of the most incisive sets of songs ever laid down on wax.


Illmatic stays in my top 3 albums of all time.I know i'll be picking this up.

I think it's 5 stars, but i've heard how great it is for the past 15 years. I'm not gonna pay money to hear these two say the same thing i've already heard.
