An indispensible social history of rap from a music critic who was there or there abouts and has done his fieldwork. 200 pages and it leaves you wanting much more.

(Scandalously it is currently out of print and tails off with the rise of Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer. I hope Toop is working up a 4th edition, which I would totally buy.)

It's a third edition... hence the three. It has been very much rewritten since the first edition (which I'd read at the time). But it was still annoying to realise that I was rereading material which in some cases didn't seem to have been changed that much.

Recommends it for: bored orthodoxal hip-hop fans
Shelves: muzzikology
Unsorted collection of various facts, quotes and persons (most of them are not very interesting or smart).
