Sophia Chang has announced her audiobook memoir, The Baddest Bitch in the Room. Aside from detailing her rise as “the first Asian woman in hip-hop,” the book also provides the legendary manager a space to pay homage to the people she’s worked with over the years. The Baddest Bitch in the Room will be narrated by Chang herself, and fans of ’90s hip-hop can listen to her astonishing journey into the music industry — from falling in love with the genre to breaking racial and societal norms.

The daughter of Korean immigrants, Chang was raised in a Vancouver suburb before moving to New York City. A true hip-hop head, she found herself in the city’s underground music scene surrounded by who would become some of the most influential artists of all time. Her career progression in the music industry lead her to become the manager of Wu-Tang Clan members RZA, GZA and the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard, A Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip and R&B neo-soul names D’Angelo and Raphael Saadiq. Along with her stint as an artist manager, she also worked as General Manager of RZA’s Razor Sharp Records and Joey Badass’ Pro Era Records.

The Baddest Bitch in the Room releases September 26 under Audible and Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine. You can pre-order your copy on Audible now.
