check the technique.


Hip-Hop journalist Brian Coleman is set to release his second book, Check The Technique: Liner Notes For Hip-Hop Junkies, this summer under Random House/Villard Publishing.

Check The Technique is the follow-up to Coleman’s first book, the widely acclaimed “Rakim Told Me: Hip-Hop Wax Facts, Straight From the Original Artists.”

Written for Hip-Hop artists, industry professionals and fans alike, Check The Technique is a 36 chapter account of never-before-told stories of Hip-Hop experiences by the artists themselves.

Over 75 DJs, producers, industry insiders and artists, like De La Soul, Public Enemy, The Fugees, Beastie Boys and more gave their input on for Check The Technique.

“My goal with Check the Technique is to let people eavesdrop on some amazing conversations I’ve had with Hip-Hop legends over the years,” Coleman said. “To me, the most important thing about the book is that the facts, stories and opinions come from the artists themselves. Hip-Hop artists have a certain image on video screens and in press-junket interviews, but Check the Technique does its best to strip all of that away and talk to these innovators as people, with respect and fan-fueled curiosity.”

The book, scheduled to appear in bookstores June 12, will feature over 500 pages of exclusive interviews, photos taken by B+, and an introduction by The Roots drummer, ?uestlove.

Coleman is currently planning book release events in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and San Francisco for the summer of 2007.
