Can I tell you how good it is to read a "tell-all" by someone who is an actual writer? Kim Osorio's Straight from the Source is probably the first book I've read about one person's experience in hip-hop that was well-written, engaging, not exploitative, and had a message. In addition, as a story (outside of hip-hop) I would put Straight from the Source on the same level as the New York Times best-selling Man in the Middle by John Amaechi -- she managed to tell a solid story that anyone can relate to.

After reading her book from cover to cover, I sat down with the first and only editor-in-chief of The Source for The Advocate. Osorio offers excellent insight on sexism, homophobia, and how her experience transcends all groups.
