Praise

“Jonathan Abrams, for the entirety of his career, and regardless of the subject matter, has shown a profound ability to take the words and recollections of others and stitch them together into something big and special. . . . Here, in maybe his most massive undertaking, he’s done it with the rise of hip-hop. The Come Up is Abrams at his sharpest, at his most observant, at his most insightful.”—Shea Serrano, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“To say this book is incredible simply doesn’t do it justice. It’s essential. A primary source. It isn’t just the fact that you have the voices of the most seminal rap artists who were there from the very beginning, you now have the perspective of time and reflection. Read this book. Eat this book. Steal this book. All the pieces matter.”—Cheo Hodari Coker, creator and showrunner of Marvel’s Luke Cage, co-writer of the Notorious B.I.G. biopic Notorious, and author of Unbelievable: The Life, Death, and Afterlife of The Notorious B.I.G.
