Full description for Mo' Meta Blues
MO' META BLUES is a punch-drunk-on-culture memoir in which Ahmir tells his own story while tackling the greats, the lates, the fakes, the headliners, and the almost-weres of music, as well as pivotal moments in black art and culture. As one of our most recognizable cultural chameleons, Ahmir writes his story in his inimitable, passionate, stream-of-consciousness style. His book will reveal his own formative experiences, such as growing up in 1970s North Philly with 1950s doo-wop singers as parents, finding his way though music, and ultimately founding and rising up with The Roots, as well as some random musings about his run-ins with celebrities and playing with his idols. MO' META BLUES further distinguishes itself as utterly unique by constantly questioning its own form and quality, thereby getting deeper and deeper into the truth and heart of Ahmir's life (hence the 'Meta' of the title). Ahmir will also end each chapter with reviews of his favorite records from that chapter's time period. This book is a psychedelic amalgam of self-examination, music, pop culture, black culture, and is absolutely one-of-a-kind.
