It’s no secret that D.D. Turner looks towards his own childhood growing up in East New York, Brooklyn, (with specific reference to Linden Houses) when writing The Chronicles of a Hip Hop Legend. But did you know that a great deal of the locations referenced in the series are actual places in East New York? Just check out the description of Feedback’s lair in “Paths of Grand Wizardry” and how it matches the mountainous dirt mound on the westbound Belt Parkway (Pennsylvania Ave. exit). Feel free to ask him about his inspiration on July 21st at this year’s Harlem Book Fair.
