    Some of my favourite autobiographies aren't afraid of choosing places to admit defeat rather than tout success Unlike the Alan Partridge autobiogaphy in which the author chooses to end an awful lot of his anecdotes with the phrase 'needless to say I had the last laugh' here in the title alone the writer has humanised his life in pursuit of success and acceptance in the hip hop world That's what makes Emery's work so relatable and

    An interesting and addictive read for any hip hop fan As you follow the journey of the unsuccesful rap career it is apparent that Andrew Emery has an outstanding knowledge of the genre and the footnotes along the way make for good reading too He manages to convey the passion for the music in a way that most hip hop fans can relate to

I was sent a review copy of this through an online book groupI tend to read factual books about hip hop history as there aren t many that take a personal perspective on it DJ Semtex s Hip Hop Raised Me was a rare example of one with a personal touch but it was about the story and photos and less about the writing This book can be enjoyed even if you don t like hip hop it s just as much about the author s life 80 s and 90 s Britain heavy metal and pop and it s written with real humour some of it silly some of it bittersweet He s very hard on himself and he even reprints his worst lyrics but it builds up into a picture of a person who s really passionate about the music and wants to sum up what it meant to his generationI think he s succeeded I found some bits really touching especially the family drama and the footnotes were observant and full of good jokes I m hoping for books that tell stories about life in hip hop and would like to read some US ones too

Drew s encyclopaedic knowledge of hip hop be it the US or UK scene is wittingly and self deprecatingly told through his aspirations from young to become a rapper It s an enjoyable read as well as a detailed insight into the world of hip hop and its history The last chapter annoyingly glosses over his encounters with various names but perhaps that s being saved for another book
