Hyldest til gruppen der bragte jazz ind i hiphop og bragte fornyet liv til gamle rytmer, A Tribe Called Quest.

Poeten og skribenten Hanif Abdurraqib dykker ned i gruppens historie og trækker fra sine egne personlige erfaringer om hvordan den distinktive lyd resonerede blandt fans som ham selv. Et resultat der er ligeså rapsodisk som gruppen selv.

Abdurraqib sporer hele Tribes kreative karriere fra deres tidlige afrocentriske dage gennem de klassiske album og deres lange pause.

Paperback, 216 sider

Udvalgte anmeldelser af bogen:

"[R]iveting and poetic…Abdurraqib's gift is his ability to flip from a wide angle to a zoom with ease. He is a five-tool writer, slipping out of the timeline to deliver vivid, memoiristic splashes as well as letters he's crafted to directly address the central players, dead and living." (Washington Post 2019-01-26)

"[W]arm, immediate, and intensely personal...This lush and generous book is a call to pay proper respects not just to a sound but to a feeling." (New York Times)

"Go Ahead in the Rain is more than just an homage to A Tribe Called Quest…it's more like a reckoning. The result is a critical examination of the group—their message and history—as well as a musical memoir of sorts, and an exploration of the lasting impact music can have on the soul." (Vanity Fair)

"The book comes to life when [Abdurraqib] speaks from his own experiences…Although Go Ahead in the Rain is a no-brainer for devoted hip-hop heads (even those who think they've read all there is to know about the group), Abdurraqib's poetic homage to ATCQ (and hip-hop in general) will captivate casual music fans as well." (Booklist, Starred Review)

"Go Ahead in the Rain is a literary hybrid: part academic monograph on the group and its music, part pocket history of hip-hop, part memoir, and part epistolary elegy. It is a book that conveys the wonder of being a fan and the visceral impact of experiencing the feeling of having oneself reflected back in music and pop culture." (Publishers Weekly)
