Also known as signifying, joning, and playing the dozens, snapping is as old as the blues and as cutting-edge as hip hop and rap. The book features more than 450 snaps direct from the streets as well as from celebritites. This book will make you laugh out loud—and give you verbal ammunition for the next time someone tries to snap on you.

More than 500 of the sharpest, funniest, most creative insults from an African-American comic art form as old as jazz and as cutting-edge as rap. Snapping affirms the power of the spoken word--of fighting with wits, not fists--and is being featured more and more in movies, sitcoms, sports, and stand-up routines. Illustrated.
