Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.70)
- 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "It's not the first hip-hop archaeological dig. But this mix of proto-rap testifying, trash-talking and gibberish from the Twenties to the Sixties may be the most far-ranging one yet."

Spin (p.86)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his scholarly comp proves its relevance with unwavering and often hilarious topical familiarity."
