About the Author
Eminem is a multi-platinum recording artist and the recipient of two Grammy Awards. His full-length albums, The Slim Shady LP and The Marshall Mathers LP, have garnered vociferous critical acclaim.
Sacha Jenkins much like rap great KRS-One is hip hip. Sachy-Sach, his sister Dominiqe, and their artistically inclined, Haitian-born mom-dukes, Monart, moved to Astoria, Queens, NY from Silver Springs, MD in the summer of 1977. Their Philadelphia, PA-reared, filmmaking/Emmy Award-winning pop-dukes, Horace, was already living up in NYC at the time (100th Street & Central Park West, to be exact . . . blocks away from the infamous Rock Steady Park). During the school week, young Sacha spent his post three o clock days playing stickball and skelly. Then...
1980 Sacha was blessed by an elder with an instrument of destruction that would forever change his life. PK, a local subway scrawler with some inter-borough celebrity, handed the young boy a very juiced-up Pilot magic marker.
1988 Inspired by a the "International Graffiti Times" (a rag published by aerosol legend Phase 2 and David Schmidlap), Sacha would put together "Graphic Scenes & X-plicit Language" a zine dedicated to, yep, graf. And poetry. And anti-Gulf War rants. And humor. And towards the end, in 1991, music.
1992 "Beat Down", America s "first" hip hop newspaper, is launched by Sacha and a childhood friend. Ten issues in, Sacha and childhood friend have a falling out. Bye bye, Black bird.
June, 1994 e"go trip" magazine is born.
1996 Sacha writes for "Vibe", " Rolling Stone" and "Spin". He gets a Writer-At-Large then Music Editor gig at "Vibe".
Present In his spare time, Sacha likes to play guitar, collect "Planet of the Apes" action figures and listen to rap that isn t wack. He s a Leo.

Le livre est mal fabriqué. Les pages ne sont pas collées au livre. Elles me restent dans les mains. Je suis vraiment déçue.Published on Feb. 18 2013 by Geneviève
