"From a perspective few others in the world could relate to,
Ms. Goldwater opens our eyes to the Golden Age of hip hop
music, as it grew from a localized sub-culture to a worldwide
lifestyle and pop phenomenon. Her writing revisits her wide-
eyed enthusiasm as she launched her improbable magazine
publishing career, dedicating herself to a genre that was still
unfamiliar to mainstream America and a wide array of artists
who were just beginning what would become legendary careers."

"Ms. Goldwater relays her dealings with these fledgling
superstars in a personal, casual and exuberant manner that is
both informative and enlightening. When many at the time saw
these young entertainers merely as fodder for exploitation, Ms.
Goldwater, through her magazine, looked past that, and helped
solidify their careers, and as a result, the legacy of hip hop
music in American music history. Her story is interesting and
fun, and remains a vital part of documenting hip hop’s life story."
