Overview

In the preface of The Vinyl Ain’t Final, Robin Kelley exclaims ‘Hip Hop is Dead! Long Live Hip Hop’, and the rest of the contributors in this edited volume respond by providing critical perspectives that bridge the gap between American-orientated hip hop and its global reach.From the front lines of hip hop culture and music in the USA, Britain, France, Japan, Germany, Hawaii, Tanzania, Cuba, Samoa and South Africa, academics, poets, practitioners, journalists, and political commentators explore hip hop — both as a culture and as a commodity. From the political economy of the South African music industry to the cultural resistance forged by Afro-Asian hip hop, this potent mix of contributors provides a unique critical insight into the implications of hip hop globally and locally. Indispensable for fans of hip hop culture and music, this book will also appeal to anyone interested in cultural production, cultural politics and the implications of the huge variety of forms hip hop encompasses.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[T]his is a helpful book in explaining the appeal of hip hop and rap across the world to those who are dispossessed and have no other voice. It would certainly gain a wider readership beyond the academic community as many of the essays consciously eschew an academic framework which helps the reader to appreciate the political and social aspects of rap not only in the United States but across the world." -Dr. Lee Sartain, University of Portsmouth
