This work is a revealing chronicle of Hip Hop culture from its beginnings three decades ago to the present, with an analysis of its influence on people and popular culture in the United States and around the world. It emerged from the streets of the Bronx, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles to become a dominant cultural force - an extraordinarily rich and often controversial wellspring of music, movies, language, and fashion. Once seen as a novelty, Hip Hop culture has become part of the mainstream - a mainstay of cable TV and shopping malls, as familiar to Madison Avenue as it is to Main Street. From the "Last Poets" and "The Message," to "Jay-Z", "P. Diddy", and "50 Cent", "Hip Hop Culture" is the first comprehensive reference work to focus on one of the most influential cultural phenomena of our time. Scholarly and streetwise, backed by statistics, documents, and research, it recounts three decades of Hip Hop's evolution, highlighting its defining events, recordings, personalities, movements, and ideas, as well as society's response. How did a fringe musical genre, all but dismissed in the early 1980's, become the ruler of the world's airwaves and iPods?

Who are the players who moved Hip Hop from the record bins to the pinnacles of entertainment, business, and fashion? Who are the founders, innovators, pretenders, and provocateurs? Authoritative and authentic, "Hip Hop Culture" provides a wealth of information and insights for students, educators, and anyone interested in the ways pop culture reflects and shapes our lives.
