The History of Gangster Rap: From Schoolly D to Kendrick Lamar, the Rise of a Great American Art Form

The History of Gangster Rap: From Schoolly D to Kendrick Lamar, the Rise of a Great American Art Form

by Soren Baker Author and Xzibit Foreword

I think we all remember where we were the first time we heard Ice-T bellowing “COP KILLAH!!!” And then he confusingly went on to play a cop on TV for a generation. But if you don’t, or just need the scoop on the Ice Cube vs. Eazy-E beef, this is the book for you. Scholarly, readable, and filled with stories, the book covers a wide variety of talents  - including all the ones you would expect and one or two you might not. (But only a few sentences about X-Clan. What’s up with that.)
