I recently bought a book for my 14 yr old son. It is called "How to Rap: The Art and Science of the Hip-Hop MC". He was delighted with it. He disappeared into his room and we saw very little of him for a couple of weeks. Now my son normally never reads books!!! Anything that will get him off the computer is worth it. I had a quick look in the book before I handed it over and it looks to be a serious study of the poetry and the skill of rapping. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
