En vanvittig bog fra Brian Coleman på 528, der fortæller historien bag en række af de mest legendariske hiphopalbum i historien. En klassiker og et must for alle hiphopfans.

"The stories behind a triple dozen of the most legendary albums of hip hop's golden age -- told to Brian Coleman by the MCs, producers and DJs themselves -- a perfectly realized follow up to his superb Rakim Told Me that's bigger and better in nearly every way! Coleman, a longtime columnist and freelance scribe on the hip hop beat for XXL, Waxpoetics, and many more pubs really works some magic with this book -- getting the firsthand stories of some of the most phenomenal hip hop albums ever -- with commentary on each track. Check The Technique revisits of the some of best chapters from Rakim Told Me and adds lots more -- collecting the stories behind De La's 3 Feet High And Rising, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Pete & CL's Mecca And The Soul Brother, PE's It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back, Do You Want More ?!!!??! by The Roots, Tribe Called Quest's Low End Theory, Resurrection by Common (Sense), Lyte As A Rock by MC Lyte, The Infamous Mobb Deep, Brand Nubian's One For All, Run-DMC's Raising Hell, The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick and much more -- including a preface by Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson and photos by Brian Cross, aka B+ of Mochilla! Trade paperback, 528 pages.

It’s a sad fact: hip-hop album liners have always been reduced to a list of producer and sample credits, a publicity photo or two, and some hastily composed shout-outs. That’s a damn shame, because few outside the game know about the true creative forces behind influential masterpieces like PE’s It Takes a Nation of Millions. . ., De La’s 3 Feet High and Rising, and Wu-Tang’s Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). A longtime scribe for the hip-hop nation, Brian Coleman fills this void, and delivers a thrilling, knockout oral history of the albums that define this dynamic and iconoclastic art form.

The format: One chapter, one artist, one album, blow-by-blow and track-by-track, delivered straight from the original sources. Performers, producers, DJs, and b-boys–including Big Daddy Kane, Muggs and B-Real, Biz Markie, RZA, Ice-T, and Wyclef–step to the mic to talk about the influences, environment, equipment, samples, beats, beefs, and surprises that went into making each classic record. Studio craft and street smarts, sonic inspiration and skate ramps, triumph, tragedy, and take-out food–all played their part in creating these essential albums of the hip-hop canon.

Insightful, raucous, and addictive, Check the Technique transports you back to hip-hop’s golden age with the greatest artists of the ’80s and ’90s. This is the book that belongs on the stacks next to your wax.

“Brian Coleman’s writing is a lot like the albums he covers: direct, uproarious, and more than six-fifths genius.”
–Jeff Chang, author of Can’t Stop Won’t Stop

“All producers and hip-hop fans must read this book. It really shows how these albums were made and touches the music fiend in everyone.”
–DJ Evil Dee of Black Moon and Da Beatminerz

“A rarity in mainstream publishing: a truly essential rap history.”
–Ronin Ro, author of Have Gun Will Travel"
