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.'
