5. “The Hip-Hop Professional” by Shanti Das
Looking to get into the music business? Not exactly sure where to start? Finding yourself applying for internships with almost non-existent up and coming record labels? Shanti Das has created a delightful piece of literature that infuses music lyrics to help carry out her story. Taking it a step further Shanti not only speaks about how she made it in the business but how important it is to empower each other during the process of completing our goals. Although this book may not be a step by step guide to getting in the music business Shanti Das allows us to use her experiences as a lesson without making the same mistakes.
