Children's Literature - Jillian Hurst
Learn about the lifestyle, music, and big names of the rap scene in this edition of "The Music Scene" series! Readers can discover how rivalries, rhymes, and beatboxing play a part in defining the rap lifestyle. This educational book explains old school vs. new school; describes the big players in the industry such as Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, and Missy Elliot; and details the story of one female rapper trying to get a record contract. By using relevant characters and interesting sidebars, the authors make this informative book even more appealing to its young audience. However, the choice of colors, pictures, and crowded layout of this book resemble an educational book from the 80s, which may turn students away before they even read the information. This book would be a great resource in a library or school for those eager to learn more about rap or who are interested in writing a report on the rap scene. Includes glossary, timeline, and suggested further reading. Reviewer: Jillian Hurst
