Everyday Life By MG Hardie

EveryDay Life has earned praised for being “Ground-Breaking”, “An Urban Hip-Hop Masterpiece”, and “Realistic”. Hardie has created unique African-American characters and voices that are honest, passionate, and intelligent. Hardie, through EveryDay Life, manages to drop perhaps the most potent verse in Hip-Hop and what is one of the most provocative books of the millennium.
EveryDay Life begins with a raw urban setting and four African-American men, but then it “Cuts” and “Scratches” its way through the oversexed, verbally charged, and very humorous lives of the disenfranchised. These characters openly discuss matters from slavery to foreign policy. EveryDay Life is a contemporary book which does not shy away from stereotypes, it embraces them. The story plays out entirely on the West Coast, but the subject matter in EveryDay Life is universal. Tucked nicely inside the pages of EveryDay Life’s unimposed narrative is the history of the most important cultural movement of our time... Hip-Hop.
“My goal was to craft a book that was music to your eyes and at the same time be thought provoking and entertaining. EveryDay Life is vastly different and that is one of the best things about it.”, says Hardie. EveryDay Life keeps you laughing while providing enough social commentary to last a decade. EveryDay Life effectively adds Literature as a fifth element to Hip-Hop and does it with a mean B-Boy stance. A recent review has gone so far as to say that “...EveryDay Life has taken literature into unchartered territories.” You can also get to know MG Hardie when he is interviewed by Tamika Newhouse of AAMBC on BlogTalk Radio during the month of November. African-Americans on the Move Book Club is a movement focused on supporting African American Literature.
