Editorial Reviews

Review

“An empowering book that moves you to action and to question status quo America. Reading It's Bigger Than Hip Hop is motoring through a new generation of America with one of its best storytellers.” ―Ari Bloomekatz, Los Angeles Times

“M.K. Asante, Jr. combines drive, skill and a commitment that buoys us all. The hip hop community should feel extremely blessed to have those qualities attached to its forward movement.” ―Chuck D

“M.K. Asante, Jr. is a rare, remarkable talent that brings to mind the great artists of the Harlem Renaissance.” ―Philadelphia Inquirer

“Asante expertly blends historical information about hip-hop and the civil rights movement with personal narrative, interviews with artists, and quotations from civil rights leaders and classic poetry to create an original and daring work. ” ―Jennifer Zarr, Library Journal

“Positive young artist tries to show the way forward for oppressed African-Americans. Asante joins the throng of idealistic young academics, black and white, desperate to find messages of hope and change amidst the monotonous bluster and carnage of much hip-hop.” ―Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

M.K. Asante, Jr. is an award-winning poet, filmmaker and professor at Morgan State University. He is also the author of Like Water Running off My Back and Beautiful. And Ugly Too. His films include the internationally acclaimed documentaries, 500 Years Later and The Black Candle.
