Críticas:

"Pulitzer-level reporting."
-"Spin"
"A classic of music business dirt-digging as well as a kind of pulp epic."
-"Rolling Stone" (4-star review)
"As gripping and dense as a prime Jay-Z rhyme...Charnas has done a real service to pop history."
-"New York Daily News"
"Essential..."The Big Payback" focuses not on the beefs you know but on the back-room battles you don't."
-"Details"
"[An] exhaustive, engrossing history of the genre"
-"Entertainment Weekly"
"In a year that has seen plenty of hip-hop books, "The Big Payback" stands out as a must-read for any fan - or detractor - of the genre."
-"Forbes"
"The riveting dialogue culled from more than 300 interviews makes it seem as if Charnas was in the room for every deal that ever went down in hip-hop, and sometimes he was."
-"Austin Chronicle"
"Dan Charnas captures an epic story full of joy and pain, triumph and failure, grace and greed with the skills of a journalist, the wisdom of an insider, and the passion of a microphone fiend. Call "The Big Payback" a hip-hop version of David Halberstam's "The Reckoning.""
-Jeff Chang, author, "Can't Stop Won't Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation"
"With an insider's connections and an outsider's perspective, Dan Charnas has written the otherwise untold story of the business of hip-hop. His cast of characters -- producers, agents, label executives, talent scouts -- is every bit as compelling and dramatic as the musicians themselves. In the tradition of such great music journalists as Fred Goodman and Frederic Dannen, Charnas takes us way behind the scenes. It's an unforgettable odyssey."
-Samuel G. Freedman, "New York Times" columnist and author of "Upon This Rock, Who She Was," and "Jew vs. Jew"
""The Big Payback" is a stunning achievement. Not only does it manage to pack in countless unprecedented anecdotes about hip-hop that you can't find anywhere else, the read is effortlessly smooth. First there was David Toop's "Rap Attack, Ego-Trip's Book of Rap Lists," then Jeff Chang's "Can't Stop, Won't Stop," and now this book, the one ring that rules them all."
-Cheo H. Coker, co-screenwriter of "Notorious" and author of "Unbelievable: The Life, Death, and Afterlife of the Notorious B.I.G."
"How did hip hop's shoot-from-the-lip outlaws and go-for-broke gamblers become the entertainment industry's new landed gentry? Dan Charnas brings a fan's devotion, an industry insider's savvy, and a reporter's unblinking eye to chronicling a cultural revolution that is as contradictory and complex as the country that produced it. "Payback" is a bitch."
-Fred Goodman, author of "Fortune's Fool" and "The Mansion on the Hill"

"There has never been a better book about hip-hop...a record-biz portrait that jumps off the page."--A.V. Club
THE INSPIRATION FOR THE VH1 SERIES THE BREAKS

The Big Payback
takes readers from the first $15 made by a "rapping DJ" in 1970s New York to the multi-million-dollar sales of the Phat Farm and Roc-a-Wear clothing companies in 2004 and 2007. On this four-decade-long journey from the studios where the first rap records were made to the boardrooms where the big deals were inked, The Big Payback tallies the list of who lost and who won. Read the secret histories of the early long-shot successes of Sugar Hill Records and Grandmaster Flash, Run DMC's crossover breakthrough on MTV, the marketing of gangsta rap, and the rise of artist/ entrepreneurs like Jay-Z and Sean "Diddy" Combs.
300 industry giants like Def Jam founders Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons gave their stories to renowned hip-hop journalist Dan Charnas, who provides a compelling, never-before-seen, myth-debunking view into the victories, defeats, corporate clashes, and street battles along the 40-year road to hip-hop's dominance.
