Bobby, Bruce & Bam

Bobby, Bruce & Bam: The Secrets of Hip-Hop Chess is a history book about hip-hop, chess, and martial arts in America in the 1970s. As someone who worked with hip-hop musicians in Compton and established the Hip-Hop Chess Federation, Adisa (The Bishop) is an expert who presents stories and draws insights from that time. A textbook which allows the reader to learn what the author calls "chess notations and life equations" is included, a valuable resource for those who want to achieve success of whatever kind in their life. This book will inform and inspire you-without pseudo-cultish undervibes.

GETV145: Hip Hop Chess Tournament
We got wind of a big chess tournament happening with some of the big names in hip hop, so of course we had to see what this was all about. Turns out the Hip Hop Chess Federation was putting on the inaugural Chess Kings Invitational, an event with the brightest young minds of chess competing for scholarships and the big belt. Chess, hip hop music and martial arts are the elements that build life strategies according to founder Adisa Banjoko. Irina gets the scoop behind the 64 squares and meets legends PopMaster Fabel of the Rock Steady Crew and The RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan among others. www.geekentertainment.tv/2007/10/22/hip-hop-chess-tournam...
