About the Author

Jeffrey O. G. Ogbar is associate professor of history and director of the Institute for African American Studies at the University of Connecticut. He is author of Black Power: Radical Politics and African American Identity and edited the volume The Civil Rights Movement: Problems in American Civilization.


Easily one of the most substantial and thoughtful works on the cultural politics of hip-hop. Original and analytically rigorous, it successfully balances an insider's love of the culture with a scholar's critical eye. Expect it to generate considerable attention. William Jelani Cobb, author of To the Break of Dawn: A Freestyle on the Hip-Hop Aesthetic ""What does it mean now to 'keep it real'? Is hip-hop ripping society apart? Ogbar compellingly examines race, gender, authenticity, and this African American generation's quest for true democracy and liberation."" Jeff Chang, author of Can't Stop Won't Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation
