Check the Technique

Brian Coleman, is working on a book titled Check the Technique: Liner Notes for Hip-Hop Junkies, which will contain a chapter about the Beastie Boys' album Check Your Head.

The author told The Phoenix: "For the Beastie Boys chapter (Check Your Head) I talked to every single person involved in making that record. It gave me the luxury to do that. It was nothing but amazing, I'm really excited."

Coleman is the author of Rakim Told Me, a first-hand account of hip-hop classics. The self-published book created such a buzz that Random House asked Coleman to update and release a much bigger book. Coleman doubled the amount of hip-hop information to 500 pages, including and excluding some things from Rakim. The book is 36 chapters on the making of 36 hip-hop classics -- everything from the Fugees to Too $hort.

Check the Technique: Liner Notes for Hip-Hop Junkies will be released on June 12 by Villard.
