Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"Pulitzer-level reporting."
-Spin

"A classic of music business dirt-digging as well as a kind of pulp epic."
-Rolling Stone (4-star review)

"As gripping and dense as a prime Jay-Z rhyme...Charnas has done a real service to pop history."
-New York Daily News

"Essential...The Big Payback focuses not on the beefs you know but on the back-room battles you don't."
-Details

"[An] exhaustive, engrossing history of the genre"
-Entertainment Weekly

"In a year that has seen plenty of hip-hop books, The Big Payback stands out as a must-read for any fan - or detractor - of the genre."
-Forbes

"The riveting dialogue culled from more than 300 interviews makes it seem as if Charnas was in the room for every deal that ever went down in hip-hop, and sometimes he was."
-Austin Chronicle

"Dan Charnas captures an epic story full of joy and pain, triumph and failure, grace and greed with the skills of a journalist, the wisdom of an insider, and the passion of a microphone fiend. Call The Big Payback a hip-hop version of David Halberstam's The Reckoning."
-Jeff Chang, author, Can't Stop Won't Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation

"With an insider's connections and an outsider's perspective, Dan Charnas has written the otherwise untold story of the business of hip-hop. His cast of characters -- producers, agents, label executives, talent scouts -- is every bit as compelling and dramatic as the musicians themselves. In the tradition of such great music journalists as Fred Goodman and Frederic Dannen, Charnas takes us way behind the scenes. It's an unforgettable odyssey."
-Samuel G. Freedman, New York Times columnist and author of Upon This Rock, Who She Was, and Jew vs. Jew

"The Big Payback is a stunning achievement. Not only does it manage to pack in countless unprecedented anecdotes about hip-hop that you can't find anywhere else, the read is effortlessly smooth. First there was David Toop's Rap Attack, Ego-Trip's Book of Rap Lists, then Jeff Chang's Can't Stop, Won't Stop, and now this book, the one ring that rules them all."
-Cheo H. Coker, co-screenwriter of Notorious and author of Unbelievable: The Life, Death, and Afterlife of the Notorious B.I.G.

"How did hip hop's shoot-from-the-lip outlaws and go-for-broke gamblers become the entertainment industry's new landed gentry? Dan Charnas brings a fan's devotion, an industry insider's savvy, and a reporter's unblinking eye to chronicling a cultural revolution that is as contradictory and complex as the country that produced it. Payback is a bitch."
-Fred Goodman, author of Fortune's Fool and The Mansion on the Hill

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
When I held the book in my hands, I thought I would never get through the awesome 638 pages - sooo BIG. Yet, I loved every page of it because it is an extremely well-written and entertaining read, covering the major trends of hip-hop music and the business models behind it. It was exciting for me to go back in time and combine the narrative with my own memories and the corresponding beats. That's the special beauty of Charnas' vivid voice: by presenting the stories from an insider's view, he makes you feel part of it.
I have to read through tons of books on economic history, but most of them are pretty boring in comparison. Yo, you may say, there's no business like show business.
From a European perspective, I miss one point: Hip-hop is seen as an exclusively American success story. I wish Charnas would have included the global spread of hip-hop culture more. I think that's part of the success, even though rap in most countries has never been more than an imitation of US rap (with the exception of France that has an impressive track record of phenomenal rap artists, but that's my own humble opinion and I may not know better). Yet, I agree that this widening perspective might have diluted the impressive coherence of the book.

Ein überraschend gutes Buch über die Entstehung und den unvermuteten Erfolg einer Kulturform und Ihrer Musik. Keine Mythen sondern genau und glaubhaft aufgearbeitete Geschichten und Anekdoten die jeden älteren Rapfan seine eigene Musikgeschichte neu erleben lässt. Es macht einfach Spass! Eigentlich fehlt nur, dass bei jedem erwähnte Klassiker gleichzeitig das Stück irgendwo im Radio laufen würde.

HASH(0x9990b6d8) von 5 Sternen Dolla Dolla Bill Y'all. Great look at the history of Hip-Hop biz 13. Dezember 2010
Von re el - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
What "Hit and Run" did for exposing rock music, "Country Music, USA" dissected for Country Music and "Three Blind Mice" examined in Television, "The Big Payback" does for hip-hop. Almost every book on hip-hop has been overly academic, a cash-in or hagiography of the stars. Nobody has touched the nexus of commerce, culture (in particular race) and history in such a suspenseful narrative as "The Big Payback." Primarily, especially for those of us who grew up with hip-hop, this book opens the doors of what lay behind the music without the hype. And, it is more than just "Mo, Money, Mo' Problems." In particular, the historical roots of the music on the streets of Harlem add The Bronx. I found it impossible to put down. I only wish that the electronic version might have contained a soundtrack or maybe a video to punctuate the text.

HASH(0x9990bc00) von 5 Sternen Number One Hip Hop Fan 10. Dezember 2010
Von Kevin A. Mitchell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book is the most detailed and real to life accounting of the business of music ever written. Details are provided about the "behind the scenes" activity of how the hip-hop business grew into a billion dollar business. The book is vivid and informative to anyone aspiring to pursue a career in the music business. The author Dan Charnas' account is second to none and a must read for any fan of entertainment. Nothing like this exists to my knowledge. It provides the process of the development of an American art form that has transcended from the streets of the Bronx to the shores of Tivalu. Hip-hop music transformed life and culture in the 20th and 21st century and its fair to say it affected the election of an American president. I haven't put it down since I picked it up. Go grab this asap!!!

HASH(0x99e6b150) von 5 Sternen Hip-Hop's Business Bible 13. Dezember 2010
Von Zack O. Greenburg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
"The man who invented American money lived and died in Harlem."

Thus begins The Big Payback, a tour-de-force of a book that details the rise of rap music from the burned-out blocks of the South Bronx in the 1970s to the top of the international mainstream music world today. Tracking more than 30 years of hip-hop's history, it gives readers a peek at the origins of all the major players in the genre today-and the pioneers on whose shoulders they stand.

This sweeping narrative reminds readers that hip-hop has merged with mainstream popular music despite the naysayers who, even today, write it off as a passing fad. One need look no further than the obscure DJs spinning in sweaty South Bronx clubs in the book's early chapters to the rap stars starting their own companies by the book's end to realize how far hip-hop has come, and where it may yet go.

In a year that has seen plenty of hip-hop books, The Big Payback stands out as a must-read for any fan (or even any detractor) of the genre.

HASH(0x99e6b258) von 5 Sternen An Engaging Read with Excellent Reportage 23. Januar 2011
Von Laura L. Ohata - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Dan Charnas' book, The Big Pay Back, is one of the 3 best books I've read in the past ten years. Hip-hop fans will find lots to learn here, while the narrative is engaging enough to entertain and enlighten the most distracted entrepreneur. I place it up on the shelf right next to Sun Tsu's Art of War. Yes, it is that good!

HASH(0x99e6b3a8) von 5 Sternen Awesome! 20. Dezember 2010
Von Charles M - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a man of few words, also one to get board easily with books so I'll get straight to the point. This books is really hard to put down, it practically reads itself! It's amazing how elaborate and interconnected this story is, it's told in an intricate detail that puts you right in the middle of a guided tour through time as hip hop comes to life! If you're a fan of Hip hop, if you know anything about its origins or are the least bit curious about how it all started and are intrigued by the players behind the scene then definitely pick up this book!
