Manology : secrets of your man's mind revealed by Tyrese( Recording )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this New York Times bestseller, Tyrese Gibson, multi-platinum R&B singer and movie star, and Rev Run of Run-DMC and star of Run's House, present a bold, honest, and uncensored look into the male mind. Tyrese and Rev are the unlikeliest of best friends--Rev is married with six kids, and Tyrese is a single dad still hesitant to settle down. But after an unexpected argument in which Rev insisted that marriage is forever, and Tyrese countered that you could bail when the sex went bad, the two decided not just to agree to disagree but to team up and open their debate to a larger audience. Manology will help you weed out the cheaters, manipulators, and pimps from the good men, and it will give you the tools to know if your man is the marrying kind. In "Manology after Dark," the guys even give the lowdown on what men need in bed, before and after they put a ring on your finger. Some behavior can't be changed, but as Tyrese and Rev share, it's better to face the truth. With Rev's hard-earned knowledge on how to make a marriage work, and Tyrese's sometimes uncomfortable but always honest take on the single man's mind-set, Manology is your one source to help you take control of your love life and truly understand your man
Licensed to ill by Beastie Boys( Recording )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit ihrem Erstling <<Licensed To Ill>> waren die Beastie Boys nicht nur die erste erfolgreiche weisse Rap-Gruppierung - sie landeten gleich auch das erste Nummer-1-Album in der Geschichte des HipHop. -- Das New Yorker Trio kam ursprünglich aus der Punk-Szene, war aber von Anfang an geprägt von der Liebe zum schwarzen Funk von Sly and The Family Stone und The Meters. Produzent Rick Rubin holte die Beasties 1985 zum eben gegründeten Label <<Def Jam>>, wo bereits LL Cool J und bald auch Public Enemy unter Vertrag standen. -- Obwohl Run-DMC mit <<Walk This Way>> bereits eine Bresche geschlagen hatten, sorgte die Mischung aus Heavy Metal und Rap auf <<Licensed To Ill>> für Kontroversen. Erst recht in Verbindung mit den frechen Texten, deren Humor nicht überall richtig verstanden wurde! -- Trotzdem: <<Fight For Your Right>> wurde zur ultimativen Party-Hymne, <<No Sleep Till Brooklyn>> zum Motto einer Generation die den Begriff <<Crossover>> erst noch erfinden musste. Drei Jahre später, nach der Trennung von Rubin, bewiesen die Beasties mit ihrem zweiten Album <<Paul's Boutique>>, dass sie keine Eintagsfliegen waren.

Big fun in the big town : [1986 cult hip hop and NYC street culture documentary] by Bram van Splunteren( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dutch filmmaker, journalist and rap fanatic Bran Van Splunteren stepped into New York City for one intense week in 1986, armed with five things: a camera crew, a map, a deep respect for the hip-hop artform, a list of phone numbers, and a burning desire to find out what this still-growing subculture was all about. By the time he left, he had the answers be needed, along with a treasure trove of golden video footage. Tragically, these amazing images, interviews and live performances--featuring some of hip-hop's most legendary figures in their prime--were shuttered away in Europe, not seen in hip-hop's homeland for more than a quarter-century. Until now. Big Fun in the Big Town is about hip-hop when artistry in the game was still at its center. When skills, not hype, got you your first record deal. When Run-DMC took the reins from Doug E Fresh and Grandmaster Flash, paving the way for hundreds of other hitmakers to follow. When a chart-topping LL Cool J still lived with his grandmother. And when artists of all stripes could taste their own pop-chart dreams"--Container
