With knowledge of self, there's nothing I can't solve

At 360 degrees I revolve
This is actual fact, it's not an act, it's been proven
Indeed and I proceed to make the crowd keep moving

Innovative illustrator Kirk Parrish brings the iconic song "Move the Crowd" to life for the first time as a children's picture book. The lyrics to Eric B. and Rakim's hit song provide the inspiration for this instant classic.

Follow along as Parrish pairs the lyrics with colorful illustrations about a boy being absorbed into his stereo and dropped into a colorless world where the music is dull and the people uninspired. The ensuing transformation he brings to the crowd with his music is one that the whole family can enjoy together.
