Editorial Reviews

Review

“The 'Hood Comes First is a tour de force. It is the most valuable addition to the literature on hip hop to come along in recent years.” (Reebee Garofalo, author of Rockin’ Out: Popular Music in the USA)|"Forman's examination of the special issues of hip hop is a welcome and informative addition to the existing scholarship." (Mark Anthony Neal, author of Soul Babies: Black Popular Culture and the Post-Soul Aesthetic) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
The 'Hood Comes First: Race, Space, And Place In Rap And Hip-Hop by Murray Forman (Associate Professor of Communication Studies, Northeastern University) is an exhaustive, college-level study of crucial issues concerning rap and hip-hop music. From regretful commentary on the murders of prominent music figures Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. to an analysis of the evolution of hip-hop to the interaction of place and personal identity, The 'Hood Comes First is a very serious, seminal, and ground breaking look at a unique brand of American music and its social/cultural context.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Craig D on July 9, 2005
Format: Paperback
I gave this book three stars simply because of the "scholarly" maze of words the author shuttles forces you through to make his point. Though the author has brilliant thoughts, I believe that better editing could have produced a work that would have gotten his points across more easily. A wonderful book, but only recommended to those who are used to reading doctoral dissertations.
