Hip Hop Decoded
HIP HOP DECODED

Author:The Black Dot

WARNING! This book is not for everyone. If you feel that there's nothing wrong with the current state of Hip Hop, then this book is not for you. If you feel that gangsta rap, pimpin ho's, violence, drug and thug activity, and half naked women in videos has elevated Hip Hop as an art form; then this book is definitely not for you.
If on the other hand, you feel that listening to the same songs over and over on the radio that are laced with negative lyrics, watching soft porn or graphically violent videos, while reading the watered down Hip Hop magazines that endorse this way of life has shaped the minds of our youth, and are collectively being used as part of a mind control operation to mentally and spiritually enslave our future generations; then welcome to...HIP HOP DECODED.

Bury That Sucka
BURY THAT SUCKA

Author:H.Lewis Smith

The premise of Bury That Sucka is to inform some of the African American community to stop embracing the N-word and to bury it along with the negative, destructive power it holds. Strangely, having a four-hundred year old history surrounding it, the N-word appears to be something some African Americans will not let go of, yet it is taboo for any non-black people to use this word.
It is further suggested that the black American community are in fact unknowingly debasing and victimizing themselves, NOT keeping their heritage alive, as some may think.
The book is written in a manner that all can understand. The points are well-taken and the wording is easy to follow. There are quotes from great people in our history including Martin Luther King, Jr., Harriet Tubman, James Baldwin and many, many others. Smith has mixed history with honesty, love with life, education with effects. This is a great book for educators, parents, managers, professionals, newsmen, and anyone else wanting an in-depth look at the N-word, the effects and the solutions. A MUST READ!!!!

BOOK REVIEW: I have read around the way girls part one, two, and three and I can say that Part III is what's happen. The author can not keep it no real than what it is. Thats one of the goodiest book I have read this year. If you are from the street you can relate and understand it is what it is. But you have to walk their shoes and crawl their crawl or you wouldn't understand the around the way girls. If you like adventures and excitement this is the book to read so if you do not have it yet you need to purchase now. Keeping it real

Tony Jackson learns this lesson the hard way. Labeled the "asshole of West Philly," Tony holds no shame in having other women in his girlfriend Quanisha's bed. There is little remorse after he knocks off a convenience store and beats the cashier with a gun. He'll rob from his girl, his friends, people he doesn't know and your mama. Whoever, he doesn't care. And we all know that when you get money wrong, you can't hold onto it for nothing! The question is when will Tony figure that out? Maybe when he starts getting his Karma instantly and mercilessly he'll get the hint.
In fact, when will Tony get the big picture? That there's no future in his game. Will a dose of Instant Karma show him that not contributing to society in any positive way is guaranteed to get him a one way ticket to no where?
