Hip Hop America
Posted Mar 29 2006
George has been active in the hip-hop community for more than twenty years and it shows in his writing. A skilled journalist, he brings a first-hand perspective of someone who’s helped shaped the culture through his work on major films, and songs such as “Self-Destruction.” In this book George addresses the usual topics, including fashion and sexism within hip hop culture, yet brings new insight on these topics, as well as critical behind-the-scenes observations. From hip-hop’s disco roots, to media mogul Andre Harrell, to hip hop’s lack of political clout, he adeptly addresses a wide-breadth of issues. A must read for anyone remotely interested in popular culture, much less hip-hop.
