Tribe Called Quest People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm by Shawn Taylor

Book Description

One of the finest hip-hop albums ever made, A Tribe Called Quest's debut record (featuring stone-cold classics like "Can I Kick It?" and "Bonita Applebum") took the idea of the boasting hip-hop male and turned it on its head. For many listeners, when this non-traditional, surprisingly feminine album was released, it was like hearing an entirely new form of music. In this book, Shawn Taylor explores the creation of the album as well as the impact it had on him at the time - a 17-year-old high-school geek who was equally into hip-hop, punk, new wave, skateboarding, and Dungeons & Dragons. All of a sudden, with this one album, the world made more sense. He has spent many years investigating this album, from the packaging to the song placement to each and every sample - Shawn Taylor knows this record like he knows his tattoos, and he's finally been able to write a fascinating and highly entertaining book about it.

Books By Author Shawn Taylor

Faith Painting by Shawn Taylor Faith Painting, Paperback / softback (May 2012)

When you make this paradigm shift, when you see your spiritual life through this lens, then religion changes to relationship, performance gives way to acceptance, the pursuit of knowledge becomes the experience of intimacy, and the Bible becomes a book of God's longing to communicate His pursuit of you.

Big Black Penis by Shawn Taylor Big Black Penis, Paperback (February 2008)

Being black and male is a serious business, but its absurd contradictions are often too funny for words. This book leads readers on a no-holds-barred tour of the author's masculine development, acknowledging some deep but often hilarious truths about black men.
