Author Raquel Rivera explains the significance of Nuyorican and Latin influences throughout the history of hip-hop music and culture.

This book reflects a solid research effort by Raquel, and it serves as a worthy contribution to two fascinating fields: her work stands as a very refreshing study of Puerto Rican cultural evolution in New York City, and at the same time it serves as a vital addition to the existing literature documenting the true and unsensationalized history of hip hop history. This book was a great read; highly engaging, and highly recommended!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is a great documentation of Puerto Ricans' involvement in defining the Hip Hop culture. Many people believe that Latinos mimic when in truth there are many pioneers not spoken of because of the media's insistance that Hip Hop is 'black people's music'. Nice job Ms. Rivera!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
