Critic Reviews

Score: 4.5

Miranda Sawyer - The Guardian - Jan 16, 2021

"DJ Semtex has been one of the UK’s greatest hip-hop experts for more than two decades, with a high-profile show on 1Xtra for 15 years before he jumped ship in 2018 to Capital Xtra. The first interview is with (who else?) Chuck D, who wrote the book’s foreword. D is typically forthright and interesting, relaxed in Semtex’s company, and there are other influential names to come: Busta Rhymes, French Montana, J.I. the Prince of NY and more."
