Everybody and their mother have been tweeting about how amazing the television show was. So naturally I've been dying to watch it, but I really try to read the source material first when it comes to movies and TV. Abacus Books were kind enough to send me a copy to review.

I've been "getting into hip hop" hard for the last four months or so. Kanye and Jay are now regular rotations on my Spotify sessions (Watch The Throne might be my favorite album of the moment) complementing my standard Childish Gambino mixtapes. And I've been delving into the works of Nujabes, OutKast, Wale, Kendrick Lamar, and Mos Def.
