I applaud authors Forman and Neal for this book. Too many young people are clueless to the fact that hip hop is more than gangsta rappers in baggy pants and foul lyrics. In fact, gangstas represent only a small segment of the culture, although the public tends to see more of this because--face it--it sells. But if you want a global perspective on what is perhaps the most influential cultural development the world has seen in a long time, That's the Joint is a good place to start! I'm teaching a college course on "Writing the Thug," and this is a suggested reading.

Format: Paperback
Clear that this edited volume was rushed to print. Publication date got moved back a few times. Problem with books like this on Hip Hop culture, is that Hip Hop moves so fast that many of the pieces, while interesting become aged very quickly. Not to say the more "historical" pieces won't continue to be relevant, but that some of the understandings of people, places, etc., can and have changed in a few short years since those chapters/articles were yanked in to this volume. Pretty good organization of materials but really hard to justify purchase when so many of the articles are going to be easily accessible to University Students.

Bought for my college-age son for a music course. He loved the book and said it was a well-written source for his papers.

If you are doing a research paper on any topic involving either hip-hop or even social issues discussed in hip-hop such as crime, gender inequality, masculinity, culture of poverty etc this is a great tool. I bought it thinking I would have a book I could read front to back but it should not be read like that. But an awesome tool with many thought provoking articles.

The book is really awsom! Particularly Jorge Flores' article, i was impressed about it. It describes puerto rican's hidden rol in hip hop history, and blames the medias for its contribution in giving the wrong or imcomplete message. Thanks!
