Summary "The Latin Quarter was an incubator of talent for the Golden Era of hip-hop. During the mid- to late '80s, legends were born in that bustling Times Square club--from Stetsasonic, KRS-One, and Eric B. & Rakim to Queen Latifah, Public Enemy, and A Tribe Called Quest. It was the perfect recipe for success for unsigned and up-and-coming artists, as it was the ideal place to be seen and hone your craft--and music industry A&Rs were on-site to snatch up the hottest rappers. You could walk into the club a nobody and come out a star"--Back cover.
