Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this blockbuster word-of-mouth, underground classic, William "Upski" Wimsatt attacks the whole idea of the suburb as "an unfortunate state-of-mind... founded on fear, conformity, shallowness of character, and dullness of imagination."

Review:

"Not only is Upski one of the best writers on hip-hop bar none, he's also one of the most exciting theorists of racial and cultural identity in quite awhile." Ben Kim, New City

Review:

"It's a cop-out to call this 'The hip-hop book of the year.' It's the book of the year." Ben Hall, Modern Heiroglyphics
