Celebrated journalist, TV personality, and award-winning author Touré investigates one of the most enigmatic and fascinating figures in contemporary American culture:

PRINCE

Drawing on new research and enlivened by Touré’s unique pop-cultural fluency, I Would Die 4 U relies on surprising and in-depth interviews with Prince’s band members, former girlfriends, musicologists, and even Bible scholars to deconstruct the artist’s life and work.

Prince’s baby boomer status allowed him to play a wise older brother to the latchkey kids of generation X. Defying traditional categories of race, gender, and sexuality, he nonetheless presents a very traditional conception of religion and God in his music. He was an MTV megastar and a religious evangelist, using images of sex and profanity to invite us into a musical conversation about the healing power of God. By demystifying the man and his music, I Would Die 4 U shows us how Prince defined a generation.

Not so great

Was reading the sample and when it got time to pay, a price of $3.99 came up and I accepted. Next day was charged $15.00.
The book was fairly boring as far as prince goes, with to much input from the author and not enough information about Prince.

A must for Prince/Pop culture lovers

A intriguing look into the man who many love but very few actually know. Once you start you won't want to stop reading. Another great book by Touré.

PRINCE BY TOURE

Great read, wish someone would write about his life from 2012 until he died.
