Review: Rap: The Lyrics

User Review  - Goodreads

A good selection from the golden age of rap--makes me realize I should've been paying more attention. Especially to the class clowns (Biz Markie and Sir Mix-a-lot) and to all the ladies. Many of the raps can be hard to appreciate if you don't know the beats, though. Read full review
