Ego Trip's Book of Rap Lists
Author: Sacha Jenkins, Elliott Wilson, Jeff Mao, Gabe Alvarez, and Brent Rollins
Ego Trip's Book of Rap Lists is more popular than racism!
Hip hop is huge, and it's time someone wrote it all down. And got it all right. With over 25 aggregate years of interviews, and virtually every hip hop single, remix and album ever recorded at their disposal, the highly respected Ego Trip staff are the ones to do it. The Book of Rap Lists runs the gamut of hip hop information. This is an exhaustive, indispensable and completely irreverent bible of true hip hip knowledge.
