Reviews

"Illmatic Consequences is a bold intervention in the mushrooming field of Hip Hop Studies. The anthology uses Critical Race Theory lenses to theorize political, class, scientific, spatial and cultural dimensions of Hip Hop as modality and practice. From considerations of proto-CRT scholar/activism to contemporary issues ranging from public health and Black representations in narrative meaning making to fundamental issues of housing and education, the message is clear: Culture is a tool for self-determination and self-defense among oppressed peoples." Greg Carr, Associate Professor and Department Chair of Afro-American Studies, Howard University.
