“Evocative. . . . A rare glimpse inside an inscrutable American city and an inadvertent elegy to it.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Poignant. . . . An intimate portrait of the New Orleans rap scene, [where] the folks he meets are unforgettable: gifted, dysfunctional, undefeated.”

Triksta captures the game’s street-level desperation [and] tells their stories in an energetic, empathetic shorthand [that is] infused with love and respect.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Cohn’s journey through the world of teenage rappers, rickety studios, and crumbling housing projects is a human and fascinating view of a culture that isn’t widely known . . . A heavyhearted memorial.”
Entertainment Weekly
