This book is amazing. I had been a fan of Shawn Lov since 2001. I first heard him in 2000 while in Texas at my training school for the Air Force. I had a friend who rapped and was from New Jersey. I have loved hip hop and rap since I first heard LL Cool J's "I'm Bad" at a babysitters house. Fast forward to 2000 and this guy tells me the future is Shawn Lov. Coming from a black guy who knew rap, I believed him.

Then in 2001 I was stationed away from home and was working crazy hours. One day I went on and saw Shawn Lov's page. I figured I would give a listen since he was already endorsed by a friend. Since then I was a fan. I bought and dow loaded all his albums and songs. Still have them to this day. Shawn is one of the few musical artists that I have never been disappointed with. I dont always agree with his lyrics or stance on certain issues, but I repect his art and views on life. Its 2016 and I am still listening to all his songs as well as the rest of my hip hop library, classic rock, soul, and pop. Shawn is right up there.

This book brings everything full circle and not only gave me further insight on Shawn Lov the artist but Shawn Livernoche the man. This book also is not much a history on hip hop but a journey through Shawn's life and his love for the art amd culture of hip hop. I would recommend this book if you want a good honest read about someone who loves pure hip hop and not this corporate watered down mess we have now.

Whether you like his music or not, Shawn has heart and thats about the most realest thing a person can show.

been a bit of a fan of shawn lov's for a while now.. and was very interested to read this. whether its all true or not, and whether it has typo's and editing problems is beside the point. its an inspiring and somewhat educational story - even the hiphop element isn't really vital to the story, you could just as easily swap it for any art of any kind really. being hiphop was just a little bonus! its a great read, un-put-downable as they say... make sure you also check out shawn's latest work musically, with aussie producers prowla and plutonic lab. the track 7:59 is basically a continuation of this book... filling you in on what happened more recently... an epilogue of sorts... wwwdotcheckoutwaxdotcom is the place to get it! NUFF SAID RECORDS! NUFF SAID BEATS!

I honestly have not read this book. Perhaps my only reason to pick it up would be to laugh. As far as I know, Livernoche grew up in the lap of suburbia listening to Blink-182. Its in his profile, if you'd like to check it out. I'm pretty sure the Abercrombie & Fitch clothes that he "continually rocks" negate any kind of street credibility he may aspire to. And I have heard his music. I have heard better stuff out of MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice. I would make other comments, but I'm afraid that his thug friends Muffy, Buffy, and Biff might jump me outside of Starbucks on their skateboards.

I would like to start by saying that I have been a loyal fan of Shawn since I first heard his music in 2000. If you are considering purchasing this book, I will assume you are too. This book provides a great perspective of the origin of rap and hip-hop from a man who obviously has experienced, as a fan and musician, all of the ups and downs of the genre. For the fans of the Lov Doc, like myself, it also offers the incredible story of the life of Shawn and his experiences. It allowed me to go from being his fan to really being able to connect with him and his views. I do not like books by any means, but I read this entire book within two hours. I literally could not put it down. This is a MUST HAVE for any fan of Shawn Lov.

I recently ordered the ebook version of this novel and let me tell you, it is explicit! Wowie!! Still, there was something very exciting and very real about the story and I was sucked in from page one. In fact I didn't put it down. The book was less about music and more about the life of the author and although I thought at first that was going to bother me, it ended up being a real treat. I am 28, and let me tell you, it is not often that a writer comes along that actually understands what it was like growing up in the eighties and nineties, I can't find any more written by Livernocke, but I hope to see more in the future. By the end I felt like I was one of Shawn's best friends.

A lot of people hear hip-hop everywhere they go, but not many of them know it's roots and that it's not all the craziness you hear on the radio. This book is excellently constructed varying between personal narrative and historical background that kept my attention even though I didn't know much about hip-hop to begin with. Now I hear the names that are in the book and know exactly who they are and the role they played. Livernoche's book is easy to read, extremely entertaining and informational- I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the roots of the music!

It is really rare to see a person be so honest in a confessional. I didn't know anything about Shawn Love's music before I read his book and now I am a fan for life, he is an amazing writer on and off mike. I am a graduate student at Virginia State and I read a few books every week. There isn't enough African American literature out there so sometimes I make an exception and pick up something by one of my lighter brothers. I was not dissapointed.
