    Cultured Driven Piece.

    The African American culture and Hip Hop has been one in the same for the past twenty years. What's unfortunate is that when one is negative it sheds the same light on the other. However, this book is vital becuase it breaks down the mirror-image reflection of the two. Any one into Hip-Hop should study this book. Another book that researches Hip-Hop in relation to black culture is 'Why do I have to be your Nigger? Theories in Niggativity.'

    Finally a real understanding of what hip hop really is

    Hip Hop tells the story of a generation that is still fighting for the rights of African Americans. It was not only a cultural movement but an insight into what we are still fighting for. We all need to realize that the fight of the 50's and 60's continues! And Hip Hop is the worlds insight to what some may never see or understand.
