National - Amber Communications Group, Inc.'s imprint Colossus Books has published BEYONCE': Before the Legend-The Rise of Beyonce' and Destiny's Child-The Early Years by Kelly Kenyatta.

The true and timeless story of Beyonce' and her rise to fame and fortune: from Destiny's Child to Dangerously in Love and Jay-Z.

With more than 60 photos that detail the journey of Beyonce' one of the world's most beautiful and most talented divas to emerge in the twenty-first century. Author Kelly Kenyatta describes the formation of Destiny's Child the hot girl group from Houston Texas that went on to gain international fame in the early years before the split.

Beyoncé's confidence in music came long before she had gained any acclaim or won any awards. The star who was born on September 4, 1981, performed in her first talent show at age seven and received a standing ovation for her rendition of "Imagine". Before the talent show ended, Beyoncé told her mother that she wanted to "get her trophy, get her money, and go, because she was hungry". Her mother attempted to contain her ego by explaining that the contest was over, and they did not yet know who was actually going to win the event; however, it was not long before Beyoncé's confidence was proven valid, as she was announced as the first place winner.

Years later, after achieving phenomenal international success with the group Destiny's Child, Beyoncé decided that 2003 was the perfect time in her career to release a solo album. She gained immediate acclaim, because all of her mainstream exposure had made the release of Dangerously in Love highly anticipated. Audiences knew that the help she received from Missy Elliot, Jay Z, Sean Paul, Mario Winans, Big Boi, and Luther Vandross would only seal the potential success of the album.

They were right. Every song that was released from Dangerously in Love was an instant success. The album was more passionate, more mature, and more personal than anything she had ever done with Destiny's Child. "Me, Myself, and I", "Baby Boy" and "Naughty Girl" achieved the same extreme and immediate success that "Crazy in Love" had, causing the album to reach multi-platinum status. It only made sense when she embarked on her first sold-out tour as a solo artist with co-headliners Missy Elliot and Alicia Keys.

Critics loved Dangerously in Love as much as her fans did. Beyoncé found herself overwhelmed as she was the biggest winner at MTV Music Awards, BET Awards, and even the Grammy Awards, where she tied the record set by Lauryn Hill in 1999 by taking home five awards.

BEYONCE': Before the Legend-The Rise of Beyonce' and Destiny's Child-The Early Years chapters include: "In the Beginning", "Destiny's Child the First Album", "The Writing's on the Wall", "A New Destination", "On the Road with Christina Aguilera" and "Three Times a Charm".

BEYONCE': Before the Legend-The Rise of Beyonce' and Destiny's Child-The Early Years was written by Kelly Kenyatta, a Chicago-based writer and freelance journalist. Kelly has written for major newspapers and magazines and holds bachelor's and master's degrees in journalism. Other Colossus Books titles written by Kelly Kenyatta include: Eminem & Dr. Dre and Aaliyah-An R & B Princess in Words and Pictures.

National - Amber Communications Group, Inc.'s imprint Colossus Books has published KANYE WEST: Before the Legend-The Rise of Kanye West and The Chicago Rap and R&B Scene-The Early Years by Jake Brown. The fascinating story of Kanye' West from the studio years as Jay Z's producer to his escalation to the top of the music charts as an international phenomenon.

Kanye Omari West is a hip hop musician, songwriter, record producer, film director, and fashion designer.

With over 80 photos that detail Kanye from the beginning of his studio days to the grand explosion of winning three Grammy Awards for Best Rap Solo, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Album in 2006. Author Jake Brown takes you on a vivid six-year journey that encompasses all the ins and outs of becoming the legend that millions of Kanye West fans have come to adore.

Kanye West is getting his due props, in the moment, because he demands it. West wouldn't just shoot for the stars, even when he was producing them, as he wanted most of all to be one in his own right. Few realize how important Kanye West had been to the hip-hop movement between 2000 and 2006, well before he became a solo phenomenon, back when he was still a fledgling producer working on Jay Z's The Blueprint - arguably the first 5 MIC's-worthy album of the Millennium - and the record, which most critics and fans alike consider to be the most musically consistent and influential album of his career. Kanye's talent to lay samples over beats captured the moment better than any other producer to come along since Dr. Dre. Fellow hip-hop mogul P. Diddy's view on Kanye's relevance to the future of the rap game, simply stated "God put him here to do this. I've been producing for a minute, and I know that he is definitely the next generation: a real hit maker."

West was the first hip-hop spokesman for the African American SUBURBAN population, those who had grown up as he did-in the blue-collar Midwest. He could rap about being a student in a statistically white-dominated University system where he wasn't a star athlete, rather just another student. He could rap about coming from a working class family, but with a mother who had a doctorate and championed her son's career pursuits as blindly as a single, African American mother working at menial labor jobs to support her children's dreams. West had plenty of COMMONalities to the well-known story of the young, African American male from the working class neighborhood in Chicago he grew up in, to the fact he was the product of a single-parent home. The difference with West as a reflection of a specific demographic of African Americans between the ages of 16 and 25 laid in the fact that he wasn't escaping the ghetto, rather the working class.

Kanye West gave that generation an identity it had not previously had. As the producer explained, "I really felt like those kids were not being spoken for. By pitching himself in image as a college student, he was targeting a largely untapped image that few if any hip-hop stars had taken on, up to that point in 2003. Moreover, West was in a position, as both producer and rapper, to exclusively create and tailor his own sub-genre of hip-hop.

West is the millennium's first rapper with enough musical and lyrical sophistication to imply through his music's message that everyone from the inner city to the suburban middle-class young black male has the same right to go to college as his or her grandparents did to sit in the front of the bus. The parallel lies in the erasing of labels be they colored-only bathroom signs or those more subtle ones put on display in reality TV shows.

Through his sound, West breaks it all down, and in the course of KANYE WEST: Before the Legend-The Rise of Kanye West and The Chicago Rap and R&B Scene-The Early Years, we as students will uncover the method behind this genius's multi-platinum madness, from Jay Z's 'The Blueprint', lesson by lesson, through to 'College Drop Out' and 'Late Registration', and beyond. His beloved "Chicago Times" certainly felt that was the case in late 2003 when they predicted that "West is indeed really putting it down, and the answer to his question of 'what if ' is that he seems destined to become hip-hop's next multi-platinum superstar."

KANYE WEST: Before the Legend-The Rise of Kanye West and The Chicago Rap and R&B Scene-The Early Years chapters include: "Kanye West on the Come-Up", "Welcome to the R.O.C.", "College Dropout", "Arrogance or Brutal Honesty?", "Kanye' West: IN-DEMAND", "GOOD", "COMMON & John Legend", "Late Registration", "Hip-hop Looks WESTward" and "Kanye West Discography".

KANYE WEST: Before the Legend-The Rise of Kanye West and The Chicago Rap and R&B Scene-The Early Years was written by Nashville-based music biographer Jake Brown who has published over thirty books including: Prince: In the Studio; Dr. Dre: In the Studio; Suge Knight: The Rise, Fall and Rise of Death Row Records; 50 Cent: No Holds Barred; Biggie Smalls: Ready to Die; Tupac: In the Studio as well as titles on R. Kelly, Jay-Z, the Black Eyed Peas, Red Hot Chili Peppers: In the Studio.
