I ordered my copy on a Thursday, and got it in the mail on Monday. I wasn't expecting it to be autographed, which was a nice surprise. As soon as I got it I sat down to read it. I couldn't put it down, and finished it in one sitting. Incredibly thought provoking, WPPBAN was not what I was expecting. While hip-hop plays a role, this book is about Gene Thorntons journey to reconcile his life with God. This is his testimony of faith, and how by letting Jesus into his life, he's found peace. This is one of the most personal things I've ever read, and I feel I'm the better for it. This is definitely worth $15, hit the link above to order your copy.

East Palo Alto, California O.G. Ad Kapone has a strong history in the rap game. He formed the legendary West Coast group Totally Insane along with childhood friend Mac-10 or Ten Dolla. Later Scoot Dogg would join the group, who had several notable underground releases on In-A-Minute records. After being derailed a few times by the industry and the law, Ad came back strong. Rebuilding by starting T.I.E(The Insane Empire,) venturing into the online and digital realms, and releasing a solo album, AK has made a concerted effort to change with the times. The "new industry", Master P, and the effects of incarceration on an artist were a few of the subjects we explored during an email interview.

Laz has been at it strong for years and despite a few systematic derailments, has built an enormous following. We politicked on Pottersfield, Opium the Hangmen, and hip-hop in Brooklyn.
