If you fancy an interesting read, or know someone from the younger generation interested in hip hop/rap this is worth checking out. Written in a fairly basic style to appeal to younger readers, it is nevertheless a compelling tale of 3 dissaffected London youths who decide to form a hip hop group, and charts their turbulent rise to fame and notoriety. Zephaniah has cleverly weaved his tale amid a social backdrop of a London filled with rebellious gangs, but unlike tabloid images he creates realistic characters whose moral indescretions are depicted in a realistic and thought provoking manner. A couple of references and innacuracies to rap/hip hop culture were a bit wince inducing but should not put readers off taking the work seriously and reflecting on it as a representation of elements of black and urban youth experience.
