Podcast: Brian Coleman on Check the Technique: Liner Notes for Hip-Hop Junkies

Bullseye


Like a lot of music nerds, Brian Coleman is into liner notes. Unlike a lot of music nerds, however, Brian's chosen genre (hip-hop) rarely provides them. Instead of whining about it, Brian wrote "Check the Technique." The book records the oral history of the great albums of hip-hop's golden era, from "It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back" to "Life Is... Too $hort." Coleman calls this history "the invisible liner notes."
