AMAZING book! Tricia Rose deftly deconstructs why so much commercial hip hop--and both criticisms *and* defenses of it--are problematic due to racist and sexist assumptions and stereotypes. An enjoyable and well-written contribution to a debate that's still going strong, particularly in the age of entertainment corporations' monopoly.
