Original Gangstas Receives a Starred Review From Kirkus

OG cover 3D

My new book Original Gangstas: The Untold Story of Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Tupac Shakur, and the Birth of West Coast Rap has received a starred review from Kirkus, which means they thought it was super dope, or, in their words: “An elaborately detailed, darkly surprising, definitive history of the LA gangsta rap era.”

It’s my first ever starred review. I’m pumped.

The book comes out September 13, but you can pre-order it now, which I’d appreciate, as strong pre-sale orders help the publishing companies decide which books they’re going to push. To read short excerpts, follow Original GangstasFacebook page, which also has some great original photos, and also check out an excerpt I did for Tidal, about the brilliance and controversy of Ice Cube’s Death Certificate.
