Praises for Hip Hop You Saved My Life: A Black Girl Narrative
Aza Njeri’s Hip Hop Memoir, “Hip Hop You Saved My Life: A Black Girls Narrative” is a thought provoking and inspiring look into the life and experiences of a “black girl” who is transitioning through life experiences in order to define her Purpose. Aza makes great use of prose and storytelling as she brings readers into her perspective and walks us through her shoes as a youth in St. Louis, MO—the heart of America and pulse of Black America. This is a must read for all Hip-Hop fanatics and is sure to be an integral work within the cannon of black non-fiction and autobiographical texts.

Impressive, marvelous, must reading and so forth do not do justice. I found it packed full of insights that people can relate to and which could save their lives too.

Aza's story is a nostalgic journey of laughter, lessons and growth. It gives the reader a visual, as well as a sonic experience into the writer’s life. You can hear the soundtrack playing as we "time travel". This story makes me wish for the boldness to enlighten through my own transparency as well. Inspirational masterpiece.
