Narrator Ron Butler delivers a history of the early 1990s hip-hop scene, along with excerpts from love letters from the author to the members of the legendary group A Tribe Called Quest. Butler's delivery of the more academic aspects of the audiobook are clipped and professional--at times he sounds as if he is reading straight from a dissertation. But when he narrates the personal content from the author, he interjects more emotion. Amid those parts he finds more success in the charged moments than the tender scenes of a high school kid discovering a band that will change everything for him. The vocal contrast between the narrative and the deeply personal letters to Tribe leave the listener a bit jolted--but exceptionally well informed.
