J-Zone – Root for the Villain: Rap, Bullshit and a Celebration of Failure

Root for the Villain takes a humorous and candid look at the ups and downs of a young hip-hop fiend who decides to make his passion a career instead of getting a “real” job. It’s the official J-Zone memoir, which has become the bible for all hip-hop nerds, as well as struggling, aspiring, delusional, and already washed-up rap artists out there. You also get a healthy dose of belly laugh-inducing commentary on the subjects of gentrification, NYC nightlife, gadgetry, dating, McJobs, social media, record and cassette collecting, living with your Grandmother as an adult, and the plight of a beleaguered Generation X. Root for the Villain was included in SPIN Magazine’s Top 10 Books of 2011 list and has received nods of approval from respected music biz veterans Prince Paul, ?uestlove, Chuck D, RJD2, Slug, and Danger Mouse.
