Editorial Reviews

Review

"an impressive collection of essays that fills a crucial gap . . . Its diversity of themes, research methodologies, national idiosyncracies, historical narratives, and an impressive discography and videography, make for a deep and valuable resource. . . . an important book." (Journal of World Popular Music, 2014)

"remarkable essays by experts who offer deep historical and cultural connections. . . . readers will gain a lot from the volume's grasp of the politics and history that underpin hip-hop culture in Africa. The depth of knowledge in this book, as well, will appeal to readers who seek a richer understanding of hip-hop culture on the African continent." (Africa Today, 2014)

"a welcome addition . . . The extensive bibliography in this collection will also offer the most voracious reader and researcher of hip-hop a large source for more data . . . offer[s] rich historical material." (Journal of African Cultural Studies, 2013)

"an impressive collection . . . addresses the new frontiers and expressive cultural routes of hip hop, emphasizing the linguistic and cultural diversity that African urbanites have brought to bear on this global art form. . . .  a particularly useful resource for graduate and undergraduate courses." (Research in African Literatures, 2013)

"impressively details hip hop's evolution throughout Africa . . . presents important arguments in African hip hop scholarship, including discussions on African hip hop's linkages with US hip hop, and debates over authenticity and imitation. . . . much of the volume's strength lies in its examination of local hip hop scenes. (African Studies Quarterly, 2013)

I would recommend it to anyone interested in global Hip Hop, African youth and social movements, the expressive cultures of citizenship, the links between tradition and modernity on the African continent, or even just popular culture in general.
