Summary: Forged in the fires of the Bronx and Kingston, Jamaica, Hip Hop has been a generation-defining movement. In a post-civil rights era transformed by deindustrialisation and globalisation, Hip Hop became a job-making engine and forever transformed politics and culture. Based on more than a decade of original interviews with DJs, b-boys, graffitti writers, gang members and rappers, and featuring unforgettable portraits of many of Hip Hop's forbears and mavericks, this book chronicles the rise and rise of this movement through vivid cultural criticism and detailed narrative.
