Foreword by Shepard Fairey. If you want to understand our culture. To learn knowledge itself. Truth about the art form of poetry in motion. The struggle of our community through rhyme and rhythm. This is the book that inspired me long before I found my place in hip-hop. The power of self-expression. Unapologetically. Taught by the teacher himself. Chuck D!!! Kendrick Lamar This book is required reading for those who claim to know hip-hop, love hip-hop, and want their information from a true Master and General of the hip-hop culture...Public Enemy #1, Chuck D! Ice-T Chuck D wasn't put here to play any games. He created the greatest hip-hop album in my opinion to date, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. But the very first minute he sonically appeared to us, I knew rap was changed forever. Power, awareness, strength, and militancy is his stance in a world obsessed with punishing poor people. I knew he would righteously and boldly die so that a little young boy he didn't even know from Queensbridge could live. He attacked wickedness head-on being the rappin' rhino terror that he is. He represented for all of us putting his life on the line and making the right music fighting for hip hop, the youth, truth, and justice. Chuck D made the lane for people like me to walk. Nas Reading this book is like reliving my life all over again. Chuck D is Dope!!! LL Cool J In the more than 40 years since the days of DJ Kool Herc and "Rapper's Delight," hip-hop and rap have become a billion-pound worldwide cultural phenomenon that reaches well beyond music, into fashion, movies, art and politics. Yet there is no definitive history of the genre - until now. This massive compendium details the most iconic moments and influential songs in the genre's recorded history, from Kurtis Blow's "Christmas Rappin'" to The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill to Kendrick Lamar's verse on "Control." Also included are key events in hip-hop history, from Grandmaster Flash's first scratch through to Tupac's holographic appearance at Coachella. Throughout the book, Chuck offers an insider's perspective on the chart toppers, artists and key moments. Illustrating the pages are more than 150 portraits from mADurgency, an artist collective specialising in art and design for the hip-hop community.

A Shadow History of Hip-Hop in White America

Over the last quarter-century hip-hop has grown from an esoteric form of African-American expression to become the dominant form of American popular culture. Today, Snoop Dogg shills for Chrysler and white kids wear Fubu, the black-owned label whose name stands for "For Us, By Us." This is not the first time that black music has been appreciated, adopted, and adapted by white audiences-think jazz, blues, and rock-but Jason Tanz, a white boy who grew up in the suburban Northwest, says that hip-hop's journey through white America provides a unique window to examine the racial dissonance that has become a fact of our national life. In such culture-sharing Tanz sees white Americans struggling with their identity, and wrestling (often unsuccessfully) with the legacy of race. To support his anecdotally driven history of hip-hop's cross-over to white America, Tanz conducts dozens of interviews with fans, artists, producers, and promoters, including some of hip-hop's most legendary figures-such as Public Enemy's Chuck D; white rapper MC Serch; and former Yo! MTV Raps host Fab 5 Freddy. He travels across the country, visiting "nerdcore" rappers in Seattle, who rhyme about Star Wars conventions; a group of would-be gangstas in a suburb so insulated it's called "the bubble"; a break-dancing class at the upper-crusty New Canaan Tap Academy; and many more. Drawing on the author's personal experience as a white fan as well as his in-depth knowledge of hip-hop's history, Other People's Property provides a hard-edged, thought-provoking, and humorous snapshot of the particularly American intersection of race, commerce, culture, and identity.

Nach dem Sturz der Mauer stehen überall in Berlin ungenutzte Flächen und Gebäude bereit, mit neuem Leben gefüllt zu werden. Die Besitzverhältnisse sind ungeklärt, und so erobert die Szene aus beiden Teilen der Stadt die neuen Freiräume. Clubs, Galerien, Ateliers und Studios entstehen – oft nur für wenige Wochen. Bald schon ist Berlin Epizentrum einer neuen Kultur, lockt mit Clubs wie dem Tresor und dem E-Werk Tausende Anhänger aus aller Welt an. Sie tanzen in Gasmaske oder Schweißerbrille die Nacht hindurch zum Presslufthammersound bisher unbekannter DJs aus Detroit. Unter ihnen auch Schriftsteller, Künstler, Fotografen und Designer. Mit 180 BPM breitete sich in Berlin kurz nach der Wende die Jugendkultur aus, die Ost und West vereinte: Techno. DJs, Clubmacher, Musikproduzenten, Türsteher und Szenegestalten, Menschen aus der Mitte der Bewegung und von ihren Rändern, sie alle kommen in »Klang der Familie« zu Wort und lassen eine Zeit lebendig werden, in der alles möglich schien.

The Malignant Ideology

Exploring the Connection Between Black History and Gang Violence

The Malignant Ideology is a journey that explores the connection between black history and the gang violence endemic within our inner-city urban communities. Stephen J. Williams has diagnosed urban gang violence as a symptom of an actual de facto disease that has infected the manner in which an entire subculture has been conditioned to think. He traces this ideological malignancy back to West African tribalism, throughout slavery and African-American history, and makes the requisite connection between the circumstances, situations, and conditions perpetuated against blacks in America to the factors that contribute to the gang violence endemic within our inner-city urban communities. Having thoroughly diagnosed the many symptoms that cause gang violence to erupt, The Malignant Ideology provides a comprehensive prescription that, if taken as prescribed, has the power to fully eradicate gang violence in America.

This is the first collection of essays to take a pan-European perspective in the study of hip-hop. How has it traveled to Europe? How has it developed in the various cultural contexts? How does it reference the American cultures of origin? The book's 21 authors and artists provide a comprehensive overview of hip-hop cultures in Europe, from the fringes to the centers. They address hip-hop in a variety of contexts, such as class, ethnicity, gender, history, pedagogy, performance, and (post-) communism.

Sein Leben lang musste Albert ein Vater für seinen Vater Fred sein: Fred ist ein Kind im Rentenalter, ein schlaksiger Zweimeterriese, der nichts als Lexika liest, grüne Autos zählt und im Dorf als Held eines dramatischen Busunglücks gilt. Als sich herausstellt, dass Fred nur noch fünf Monate zu leben hat, machen sie sich auf die Suche nach Alberts Mutter. Ihre Reise wird zu einer Odyssee, die immer tiefer in die Vergangenheit führt. Albert muss herausfinden, dass die Menschen, die ihm am nächsten stehen, am meisten zu verbergen haben, und dass die Vergangenheit in der Erinnerung immer wahr ist. Es entspinnt sich eine Lebens- und Liebesgeschichte, die in einer Augustnacht 1912 im oberbayerischen Segendorf beginnt und sich durch ein ganzes Jahrhundert zieht. Ein beeindruckender, überraschender Roman um ein wundersames Dorf und zwei liebenswerte Helden. Um ihre Geschichte kennenzulernen, bleibt nicht mehr viel Zeit. Es geht ja meistens alles sehr schnell.
