Summary
    Hip Hop Music: History and Culture explores core hip hop elements, including graffiti art, breakin’, DJing, MCing, and the knowledge of self. It covers innovators of the art form from the 1970s to present, providing readers with a deeper understanding of hip hop through the styles and terminology that have made it a significant, enduring aspect of global culture.

    Opening chapters of the text examine the origin of hip hop and how it developed as a music and cultural movement. Readers learn how hip hop is not solely a source of entertainment, but also a vehicle for commentary on political and social empowerment. Dedicated chapters explore the roles of the DJ and MC, the commercial success of hip hop, and how inner-city youths have used beats and rhymes to build and heal their communities.

    Readers learn about the careers of Run DMC, LL Cool J, and Luke Campbell, as well as various styles that have evolved over time, including rap rock fusion, rap ballads, dis rap, novelty/humorous rap, dirty booty rap, and gangsta rap.

    Additional chapters trace the story of hip hop through the rap stars, producers, and record owners who continue to move the music into uncharted territories, including those who are leveraging their platforms for social and cultural change.

    Hip Hop Music: History and Culture is available as a paperback or an interactive ebook.

    The interactive ebook is ideal for academic use as its unique format allows students to read the text of each chapter and engage with digital learning activities throughout—including dynamic timelines, flashcards covering music and hip hop vocabulary, videos, audio playlists, and links to additional resources—all within a single system. The interactive ebook also includes writing prompts, activities, and suggestions for group work that can be used to create assignments and engage students in the classroom.

    The paperback book does not include alternatives for the dynamic content found in the interactive ebook and is better suited for general readers. This format is not recommended for course use.

Dr. Elliott is the founder and co-director of the college’s African American Male Leadership Program. His first book, Spirit, Rhythm, and Story: Community building and healing through song, is about the power and importance of songs that inspire people around the world.
