Write Lines: Adventures in Rap Journalism | Andrew Emery (SIGNED COPIES)

Regular price £14.99



Having failed at rapping, what's next for an endlessly passionate rap nerd? In this sequel to the acclaimed memoir Wiggaz With Attitude, it turns out what's next is a sometimes controversial career in rap journalism. Write Lines: Adventures in Rap Journalism tells the tale of hip-hop writing from the inside. 


From death threats to interviewing Lauryn Hill while she's in the shower. From calling Jay-Za c*** to his face, to letting a notorious rapper sleep in his bath, it's a hilarious, anecdote-studded tale that takes in hip-hop's first ever magazine and lifts the lid on rivalries, squabbles and how music journalism really works.


Brutally honest and endlessly opinionated, Write Lines is also a love letter to hip-hop as it changed seismically through the decades. It charts those changes from the front line through encounters with many of the greats of rap: Chuck D, Missy Elliot, RZA, Eminem, Jazzy Jeff and Gang Starr. This is an unfiltered tale of hip-hop that is both heartfelt and scabrously funny.
