"Raw, authoritative, and unflinching ... An elaborately detailed, darkly surprising, definitive history of the LA gangsta rap era."---Kirkus, starred review A monumental, revealing narrative history about the legendary group of artists at the forefront of West Coast hip-hop: Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, and Tupac Shakur. Amid rising gang violence, the crack epidemic, and police brutality, a group of unlikely voices cut through the chaos of late 1980s Los Angeles: N.W.A. Led by a drug dealer, a glammed-up producer, and a high school kid, N.W.A gave voice to disenfranchised African Americans across the country. And they quickly redefined pop culture across the world. Their names remain as popular as ever--Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, and Ice Cube. Dre soon joined forces with Suge Knight to create the combustible Death Row Records, which in turn transformed Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur into superstars. Ben Westhoff explores how this group of artists shifted the balance of hip-hop from New York to Los Angeles. He shows how N.W.A.'s shocking success lead to rivalries between members, record labels, and eventually a war between East Coast and West Coast factions. In the process, hip-hop burst into mainstream America at a time of immense social change, and became the most dominant musical movement of the last thirty years. At gangsta rap's peak, two of its biggest names--Tupac and Biggie Smalls--were murdered, leaving the surviving artists to forge peace before the genre annihilated itself. Featuring extensive investigative reporting, interviews with the principal players, and dozens of never-before-told stories, Original Gangstas is a groundbreaking addition to the history of popular music.

When he emerged from the nightclubs of Greenwich Village, Bob Dylan was often identified as a "protest" singer. As early as 1962, however, Dylan was already protesting the label: "I don't write no protest songs," he told his audience on the night he debuted "Blowin' in the Wind." "Protest" music is largely perceived as an unsubtle art form, a topical brand of songwriting that preaches to the converted. But popular music of all types has long given listeners food for thought. Fifty years before Vietnam, before the United States entered World War I, some of the most popular sheet music in the country featured anti-war tunes. The labor movement of the early decades of the century was fueled by its communal "songbook." The Civil Rights movement was soundtracked not just by the gorgeous melodies of "Strange Fruit" and "A Change Is Gonna Come," but hundreds of other gospel-tinged ballads and blues. In Which Side Are You On, author James Sullivan delivers a lively anecdotal history of the progressive movements that have shaped the growth of the United States, and the songs that have accompanied and defined them. Covering one hundred years of social conflict and progress across the twentieth century and into the early years of the twenty-first, this book reveals how protest songs have given voice to the needs and challenges of a nation and asked its citizens to take a stand--asking the question "Which side are you on?"

In diesem Buch erzählt Patrick Losensky - besser bekannt als Deutsch-Rapper Fler - seine Geschichte. Doch eigentlich handelt es von einer ganzen Generation. Besser gesagt von einer Gesellschaftsschicht, die nicht in München-Grünwald, Berlin-Mi!e oder Hamburg-Eppendorf lebt. Diese Jugendlichen wohnen in Vierteln, die man sonst nur ungern betritt, denn dort herrschen Arbeitslosigkeit, Kriminalität und Armut. Sie haben viel zu erzählen, aber ihre Geschichten schreiben sie nicht auf. Sie sprechen normalerweise nicht einmal darüber, weil sie Angst haben, abgestempelt zu werden. Doch Fler tut es jetzt. Er scheut sich nicht, die Wahrheit zu sagen, und erzählt von seinem Leben zwischen Einsamkeit, Psychiatrie und dem ganz großen Ruhm. Der erfolgreiche Rapmusiker beweist mit seiner Story, dass man auch raus kann aus der Welt, in die man hineingeboren wurde. Wenn man nur hart genug kämpft! Heute tritt er auf den größten Bühnen des Landes auf und ist Vorbild für Tausende junge Menschen. Sein Buch ist die autobiografische Geschichte eines Erfolgs, die den Lesern Mut machen wird, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen.
