Review '[R]iveting and poeticâ€šÃ„Â¶Abdurraqib's gift is his ability to flip from a wide angle to a zoom with ease. He is a five-tool writer, slipping out of the timeline to deliver vivid, memoiristic splashes as well as letters he's crafted to directly address the central players, dead and living.' (Washington Post 2019-01-26)'[W]arm, immediate, and intensely personal...This lush and generous book is a call to pay proper respects not just to a sound but to a feeling.' (New York Times 2019-01-30)'Abdurraqib's book doesn't attempt an arm's length, scholarly approach to analyzing the group and its music; instead, Abdurraqib speaks from his own experiences, often in the form of questioning or appreciative open letters to members of the band. It's a bold conceit, but if the book loses a bit of reserved objectivity in the process, it gains much more: an emotional grounding for why the group was so important to the author, and, by extension, why their music should matter to readers, too.' (Foreword Reviews 2018-11-08)'Even those who know little about the music will learn much of significance here, perhaps learning how to love it in the process.' (Kirkus, Starred Review 2019-12-09)'Go Ahead in the Rain is more than just an homage to A Tribe Called Questâ€šÃ„Â¶it's more like a reckoning. The result is a critical examination of the groupâ€šÃ„Ã®their message and historyâ€šÃ„Ã®as well as a musical memoir of sorts, and an exploration of the lasting impact music can have on the soul.' (Vanity Fair 2018-12-20)'Abdurraqib explores and exposes the power of music, of art, to not just connect with people, but to connect people, to make movements, to inspire change and revolution, on levels both large and small. In powerful, poetic language, Abdurraqib makes clear the legacy of ATCQ, both the one the group called upon for their own creation and the one they left behind.' (Nylon 2019-01-02)'Go Ahead in the Rain is an accurate, honest documentation of the band, their music, and the timeâ€šÃ„Â¶Brilliantly entertaining, informative, and self-reflective. This is essential reading.' (February Indie Next List 2019-01-02)'[Abdurraqib] allows us into his own history alongside the groundbreaking group, blending personal, musical, and cultural insights into something that truly resonates. ' (Buzzfeed News 2019-01-04)'The book comes to life when [Abdurraqib] speaks from his own experiencesâ€šÃ„Â¶Although Go Ahead in the Rain is a no-brainer for devoted hip-hop heads (even those who think they've read all there is to know about the group), Abdurraqib's poetic homage to ATCQ (and hip-hop in general) will captivate casual music fans as well.' (Booklist, Starred Review 2019-01-08)'Go Ahead in the Rain is a literary hybrid: part academic monograph on the group and its music, part pocket history of hip-hop, part memoir, and part epistolary elegy. It is a book that conveys the wonder of being a fan and the visceral impact of experiencing the feeling of having oneself reflected back in music and pop culture.' (Publishers Weekly 2019-01-11) Read more Review 'Go Ahead in the Rain reminds anyone fortunate enough to receive its pages that being black in America is to be part of a lineage, that no one personâ€šÃ„Ã´s story exists in a vacuum, and that, like Hanif with Phife and Ali and Q and Jarobi, connective tissue exists all around us, invisible to the indifferent and brightly illuminated to the curious. ' (Rembert Browne)'This book is a gorgeous offering that will bury itself in the overjoyed heart of every kid who came of age in the '90s.' (Samantha Irby)'If readers first encounter Hanif Abdurraqib'sÂ¬â€ Go Ahead in the RainÂ¬â€ as a chronicle of fandom and the development of an aesthetic sensibility, when they come to his bereavement lettersâ€šÃ„Ã®addressing each member of A Tribe Called Quest on the breakup of the groupâ€šÃ„Ã®they will realize something far more compelling is going on.Â¬â€ This book is about the struggle of the writer to fully connect with something bigger than himselfâ€šÃ„Ã®ultimately, the world at large, as it will present itself for the rest of his life.'
