    1. An interesting style for a book and one that worked on occasion and didn't on others. The book seemed hastily put together and the number of typos and grammatical errors was horrendous at points. That being said it is a very fascinating read and even if this is not a topic you are at all interested in it is worth picking up if you have the time.

    2. Has to read to be believedThe saga of Death Row Records is amazing, despite this book not being able to secure interviews with a lot of the principal players. I say book, but books is more appropriate since there are really two concurrent storylines here. One is the story of Death Row, and the other concerns the making of the documentary on which this book is partly based. Both make for gripping reading. My only issue, and this might just be the Kindle version, is that it could have been edited [...]

    3. I cannot describe this book in any other way than a bait & switch. It bills itself as an oral history of NWA and Death Row, but in actuality, it is little more than a self-published, sloppy autobiography of the unremarkable author. More than half of this book deals with the author, his VHS distribution company, and how he came to make a Death Row documentary. He inserts himself into the narrative as if he was a part of the NWA/Death Row story, but it soon becomes clear that is not the case. [...]

    4. Excellent Fantastic read!!!! Great information about an era of music that was turbulent and crazy. Well put together and a great addition to the film.
