The primary source writings in this anthology have been selected to provide your readers with a broad range of viewpoints on rap music and culture. Students are encouraged to see the validity of divergent opinions, so that they may understand the topics of discussion inclusively. An important question about the topic is presented in each chapter, such as Does rap culture perpetuate violence? and the viewpoints that follow are organized based on their response to the question. Fact boxes summarize important information for researchers, and an extensive bibliography is included.
