NEVER DRANK THE KOOL-AID
He plays high-stakes poker with Jay-Z, hangs out in the recording studio with Eminem, gets threatened by Suge Knight and plays basketball with Prince. Tom Wolfe has called him "Oscar Wilde as a street thug." A sharp observer of the entertainment industry, contributing editor at Rolling Stone and former CNN pop culture correspondent, Touré is heralded for capturing the essence of his subjects and presenting fresh analysis. In Never Drank the Kool-Aid, he peeks into the lives of celebs, visiting Prince's Paisley Park, Lauryn Hill's Christmas party and more.
