Publisher's Summary

Eric Reese is taking the cultural shock of hip hop to unknown boundaries of music history, so educate yourself in the way of life that is defining young America now!

Hip hop truth for the art and pulse of America!

This cultural brilliance of sound presented a voice and unique mind through the rough streets of America's largest conurbations going as far back as the 1920s. Sprung from the spirits of poverty, this inner city culture quickly uncovered an amazing bunch of young fresh black American forces of nature eager to express their unique self-street accounts and contributed to a spirited new style of soul of black Americana across major cities in the USA.

Nowadays, hip hop has reached the doorsteps of regions as distinct as Africa, Japan, Korea, Myanmar, Jamaica, and just about everywhere. To picture how far rap music has come, I tell you its biography in a number of urban themes, all pointing to a surreal social evolution. You'll learn in this book:

  • Why underground hip hop is its prominent feature
  • The merits of cultural theory and popular culture in rap
  • Greatest benchmarks in hip hop history by year
