Description du produit

Revue de presse

“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

“Detailed and colorful…a must-read for fans of the music industry.”—Los Angeles Times

“The rap tome you have to read...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

“One of the juiciest, flat-out most enjoyable books I’ve read in a long time.”—The Atlantic
“Epic.”—The Village Voice

“[A] stylish, lavishly detailed love letter to the genre and industry...Charnas makes an elegant case for how hip-hop is the consummate art form.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“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.”—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.”—Cheo H. Coker, co-screenwriter of Notorious and author of Unbelievable: The Life, Death, and Afterlife of the Notorious B.I.G.

“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

Présentation de l'éditeur

“There has never been a better book about hip-hop…a record-biz portrait that jumps off the page.”—A.V. Club


The Big Payback
takes readers from the first $15 made by a “rapping DJ” in 1970s New York to the multi-million-dollar sales of the Phat Farm and Roc-a-Wear clothing companies in 2004 and 2007. On this four-decade-long journey from the studios where the first rap records were made to the boardrooms where the big deals were inked, The Big Payback tallies the list of who lost and who won. Read the secret histories of the early long-shot successes of Sugar Hill Records and Grandmaster Flash, Run DMC's crossover breakthrough on MTV, the marketing of gangsta rap, and the rise of artist/ entrepreneurs like Jay-Z and Sean “Diddy” Combs.

300 industry giants like Def Jam founders Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons gave their stories to renowned hip-hop journalist Dan Charnas, who provides a compelling, never-before-seen, myth-debunking view into the victories, defeats, corporate clashes, and street battles along the 40-year road to hip-hop's dominance.

En décrivant avec une précision chirurgicale les dessous économiques et commerciaux de l'industrie culturelle du hip hop Dan Charmas montre que les acteurs de cette forme d'expression ont été aussi ingénieux pour distribuer commercialement leurs productions que pour les élaborer sur le plan poétique et musical. Avec des méthodes qui ne sont parfois pas sans rappeler celles utilisées par les dealers le hip-hop a réussi à s'imposer sur une scène médiatique qui lui était radicalement hostile. Mais ce qui est sidérant à la lecture de cet ouvrage c'est la façon don Dan Charas réussit à montrer que cette ingéniosité à vaincre l'adversité et à forcer sa chance est en elle-même un acte de nature éminemment créatrice, et participe étroitement de l'esthétique du rap.
Christian Béthune

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dolla Dolla Bill Y'all. Great look at the history of Hip-Hop biz 13 décembre 2010
Par re el - Publié sur

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hip-Hop's Business Bible 13 décembre 2010
Par Zack O. Greenburg - Publié sur

"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.

Very well put together no unbiased book on the history of hip hop from. Business standpoint. There is a saying "follow the money", its true that here there is money to be made, there is motivation, no behind every motive there is someone's story. The stories of some of the greats in hip hop re told just by virtue of connecting the dot don the money path. I lost have a bigger respect for the RZA, Chris Lighty, and Darryl Cobbin. Awesome read!

I have purchased this book no less than three times, once for myself and two others as gifts, this purchase included. As someone who grew up on this culture, I can say that not only is Dan Charnas extremely accurate with these accounts, he is extremely in-depth, and even the most "in the know" folks will learn TONS. The book is also a fun read, and a real shot in the arm for those jaded by the cynicism that comes with today's industry as it will jog your memory to the "fun times" while also including modern day events and how artists have empowered themselves over time. Really good stuff here. Also some great accounts of the late Chris Lighty and the early days of NY street promotion and record pressing. Dan has always been among the forefront of music journalists and hip hop, and The Big Payback certainly cements his place in the pantheon of "the good guys. ABSOLUTELY worth your purchase, 100%.

A great read, I am a big hip hop fan. I like the inner working knowledge of the business. Just a very disheartening look at the music industry. Just seems like mostly all the artists are at the bottom of the pyramid.
