You Made it a Hot Line:
The Most Influential Lines in Hip Hop (Volume 1)
by Alfred Obiesie
You Made It A Hot Line: The Most Influential Lines in Hip Hop by Alfred Obiesie highlights the social significance of each line and its impact on our culture through savvy commentary and dope illustrations. Those familiar with One Track Mine may know Alfred (Alf) better as Crazed Afrykan, our friendly neighborhood hip hop aficionado, whose wry wit and penchant for biting social commentary is legendary around these parts. As a hip hop producer and super-fan for over 30 years, he’s intimate with the motivations, rhymes and reasons for one of the most revered genres in modern music.
Earlier this year, Alf suffered “sudden cardiac death,” spent two weeks in a medically induced coma, and not only lived to tell the tale, but wrote the hysterical and insightful You Made it a Hot Line in the months that followed. And you thought you were busy.
You Made it a Hot Line is available in eBook and hardcover with artwork by the masterful Shah Wonders.
