nappyafro Book Club: Superhead, Questlove, & No Malice

nappyafro Book Club #1

Books on nappyafro? Yup. It happened. Besides badly writing about Hip-Hip, watching movies (and shit), and posting up pictures of women with big posteriors, I also occasionally read a book. In fact, my book reading may have doubled since I bought a Kindle earlier this year. Since I read a lot of books having to do with Hip-Hop/Rap music, I thought it wouldn’t be a bad idea to write about some of them on nappyafro. I’m still wondering if that was a good idea. Either way, here’s the first edition of nappyafro Book Club.

Young Barry White. The geek out of the bunch. He is also Jay-Z’s biggest fan. He looks like your cousin from the burbs. He is “Pro Black” (not anti-white, just “Pro Black”). Probably the wittiest out of the bunch. It is said that he got fired from the same job three times.

    True story, I was VIce President of the Association of Black Students at UofL my sophomore year and there was a serious talk about booking Karrine for Black History Month. The logic was at the time she had released her first(maybe second) book and a few people thought she was coming at things from a women’s empowerment perspective, plus she’d be a draw to get more people who may not be into Black History/consciousness. Luckily, that didn’t happen, but it would’ve been cool if it did.

      Check this out, I did an interview with an author named C.Mikki about her documentary, Black and Write, about self publishes authors and African-American literature. This is what I wrote for the introduction: “Cornel West, Tavis Smiley, Michael Baisden, Eric Jerome Dickey, Iyanla Vanzant, Terry McMillan, and Karrine Steffans are some of the most successful authors in the modern African-American literature world.”Her name looks weird with the rest of the authors but, she is a best-selling author.

      One of the legacies that Superhead has, is that she opened the door for all these Hip-Hop groupies to write trashy books, not female empowerment.

      • Young Boris Kodjoe

        Yup, thats why we didn’t bring her. Not enough substance to justify it.

    I was wondering about that Questlove book, it seemed interesting and I could never find No Malice’s book anywhere. B-Easy, have you checked out Eriq La Salle’s book, “Laws of Depravity” ?

      I had to get the Kindle version of No Malice’s book because I’m not sure if a physical version was available.

      I heard of ‘Laws of Depravity’ but I haven’t read it. Is it any good?
