Absolutely loved!

This is the 2nd book of Abdurraqib’s that I have read. I was such a fan I knew I had to come back for more. This book was more than I expected. What an absolute delight reading it was. The reader gets a VIP ‘behind the scenes’ look at some really pivotal and important moments in Black history and pop culture. I was so intrigued with each and every story I literally could not put the book down. With the gimme shelter performances, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston any reader could find a story they’re interested in or could relate to. The author does such a good job engaging the reader and making the book impossible to put down. Love, heartbreak, fame.. what does this book have that you couldn’t love? 5 stars all around.
