That's the Joint!: The Hip-Hop Studies Reader Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

That's the Joint brings together the best-known and most influential writings on rap and hip-hop from its beginnings to today. Spanning nearly 25 years of scholarship, criticism, and journalism, this unprecedented anthology showcases the evolution and continuing influence of one of the most creative and contested elements of global popular culture since its advent in the late 1970s. Think of it as Hip-Hop 101.

Assembled with great care by Mark Anthony Neal, hailed as one of the most brilliant cultural critics of his generation (Chicago Sun Times)] and fellow hip-hop scholar Murray Forman, That's the Joint is the first to attempt to present the most important hip-hop scholarship in one comprehensive volume.

The articles presented here display a diverse array of concerns, illuminating hip-hop in its broadest conception as both a musical and cultural practice. You will find critiques of groundbreaking recordings like Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five's The Message and Public Enemy's It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, some of the earliest commentary on B-Boys break dancing and DJs sampling, and serious responses to key moments and controversies from the 2 Live Crew obscenity trial to gangsta rap to the movement of hip-hop into commercial and academic spheres.

Book News Annotation:

Another outlaw art form gets coral-reefed into academia as 44 articles and essays reprinted from music magazines and books introduce students to some of the prominent authors and major themes and debates in hip-hop studies.
