I Wrote A Book With A Rapper Book Release

Friday, May 15, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Dirty Version

$10.00 to attend. Refreshments will be served, BYOB.

Local author Mickey Hess takes us behind the scenes of his book The Dirty Version: On Stage, in the Studio, and in the Streets with Ol’ Dirty Bastard (HarperCollins 2014), co-authored with Buddha Monk. Join us at Markeim as Mickey reads from and discusses the book and the sometimes uneasy translation of hip-hop onto library shelves.

Mickey Hess is Professor of English at Rider University and the author of Big Wheel at the Cracker Factory and Is Hip-Hop Dead? The Past, Present, and Future of America’s Most Wanted Music, and the editor of Icons of Hip-Hop and Hip Hop in America: A Regional Guide.
