A History of the Hip-hop Generation
From Library Staff
The definitive history of the culture known as Hip-Hop, Jeff Chang traces the foundations from Jamaica to the South Bronx. A fascinating account of its humble beginnings, a better history has yet to be written. Especially well done is the section on hip-hop's rise on the West Coast.
The rise of the hip hop movement is chronicled in this book through vivid cultural criticism and detailed narrative. Based on more than a decade of original interviews with DJs, b-boys, graffiti writers, gang members and rappers.
