By Jeffrey O. Lawrence: University Press of Kansas, Jeffrey O. Ogbar's new book is a wide-ranging and knowledgeable addition to the expanding field of hip-hop studies. He addresses many aspects of this controversial and influential cultural phenomenon: its charged gender and racial politics; its engagement with the repressive criminal justice system; its fierce investment in authenticity; its potential for political mobilization; and the music's effects on young listeners. As a historian deeply conversant with hip-hop, Ogbar builds most of his arguments by combining long-frame historicization, contemporary contextualization, and lyric analysis. His chapter on minstrelsy and hip-hop, for instance, reaches back instructively into age-old stereotypical modes and black representational politics.
