James' best friend Robbie used to be dope, and then his son was born.
So James wrote 'O is for Old School' to remind him (and his little boy) that he wasn't always as wack as he is right now.
This book will take you from A-to-the-Z through the most iconic words and phrases in hip hop. But you'll soon learn that for new parents these words have new meanings: Hoods are worn on heads, Peace comes at naptime and when they're Ballin' it seems like they'll never stop, unless you put a Sucker in it. So now's your chance to become the freshest parent in your playgroup; while your kid learns their ABCs like a G. Word to the muthas (and the papas).

His childhood dream was to be the Fresh Prince and have a T-Rex as a best friend. James lives in London, UK.
